Interview: Get to Know Austin’s Original Americana Band The Texas K.G.B.

We had a chance to meet with The Texas K.G.B. before we see them live on November 18 at The Mohawk, where they’re having their official album release party for the forthcoming LP, “Welcome Home.” First of all, after meeting with Kelly, Kody and Jace for five minutes you realize they are not only really great musicians but really genuine, fun people to be around. We left some of the outtakes from our interview in the video to show you how down-to-earth they are! We missed out on chatting with Violet Lea, but can’t wait to see her live since the band kept raving about her completing their sound. Their new album “Welcome Home” has songs written by all the band members and touches on some personal stories from each person. Take a look at the interview below to get to know The Texas K.G.B.
