About the artist

After the successful release of his debut album “Longshot” (released on State Fair Records), Chris J Norwood spent his time working the North Texas Americana music scene, playing shows, and writing for a new album.  In 2019 he co-founded the band Texicana.  In their short time Texicana has already garnered buzz and accolades winning Best New Act AND Best Americana/Folk Act at the 2020 Central Track Music Honors.  As well as winning the 91.7 KXT 10th Anniversary Tiny Cake Contest, which earned them the opportunity to share the stage with Grace Potter and Devon Gilfilian.  Their debut EP “No Good Reason” is out now.  Currently, Chris is in the studio finishing his self-produced soph0more album set to be released early 2021.


There's a lot of honesty here. You can tell Chris is writing and playing these songs because he has a story that he needs to tell, and he tells it really well. Top-notch stuff from start to finish.
