Matt & Kristin Brooks are a husband and wife duo originally from Eastern Iowa, but spent most of the past two decades in Austin, Texas After moving to Austin in 2001, they enjoyed weekly residencies, opened for many regional acts, and played everywhere from dance halls to festivals. Booking themselves as ‘Cosmic Texas Music’ they infused the spirit of Gram Parsons/Emmylou Harris with a Texas version of alt.country.
Since returning from Texas, Matt has played in several theatre productions such as TCR’s ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ and ‘American Idiot, and is a long time SPT regular. He also tours as a sideman with Austin friends that come through the area, including the Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash who played the Opus Cafe in 2017. Kristin has been active behind the scenes in the local theatre community, and has been concentrating on her writing.
Falling somewhere on the Country end of the Americana spectrum, the evening will be a balance of original material and cover songs reflecting their time in Texas. Since the band is made up of old friends, it will surely be a special evening!
