Calder Allen: Texas Radio Live

June 19 @ 7:00 pm


“At 21 years of age, Calder Allen is one of the newest rising acts to emerge out of Austin, Texas. Both audibly and lyrically beyond his years, Allen is a prolific singer-songwriter and self-taught guitarist whose most recent singles’ The Conservationist’ and ‘Ripple Through’ were recorded at the historic Arlyn Studios. This remarkable single is produced and engineered by critically acclaimed Charlie Sexton and Grammy winner Jacob Sciba. With Calder’s sublime lyrics and gritty voice, he encapsulates his love of the outdoors and fly fishing. CalderAllen’s sophomore album is once again being recorded at Austin’s Arlyn Studios alongside Sexton and Sciba and will be released in 2024.

In June of 2022, Calder released his debut album, “The Game,” which was also produced and engineered by Sexton and Sciba. His festival run has included slots at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza Chicago, Austin City Limits, South by Southwest, Oceans Calling, Sea Hear Now, FareWell Festival, Two Step Inn, and Format Festival. Beyond festivals, he has opened for The Avett Brothers, John Hiatt, Turnpike Troubadours, The Wood Brothers and Shane Smith and the Saints.

A fifth-generation Austinite, Calder Allen’s natural ability and love for music is embedded into his DNA; among his music inspirations are his grandfather Terry Allen, his album producer Charlie Sexton, and other prolific artists like Gary Clark Jr., Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt are also impactful influences on Allen’s music. Outside of music, Allen enjoys spending his time fly fishing, rock climbing, and advocating for outdoor conservation awareness.”

Part of Sun Radio’s mission is to support local musicians

Texas Radio Live is a continuation of Larry Monroe’s program, Texas Radio. When Monroe moved to Austin in 1977, his goal was to put Austin music on the radio in the form of records, live performances, and interviews. Soon after he joined KUT in 1981, he started a program called Texas Music, which was soon called Texas Radio. Texas Radio primarily spotlighted the recordings of Texas musicians, but occasionally featured a live guest or broadcast interviews taped by others. Monroe joined Sun Radio in 2011 and brought his programs, Blue Monday and Phil Music, with him, and also desired to bring back his Texas Radio program. Sun Radio founder, Daryl O’Neal responded to this by suggesting they create a live version of it. O’Neal then pitched the idea to Rob Lippincott, owner of Guero’s Taco Bar, who was thrilled at the idea of having Larry Monroe doing a program from Guero’s. Monroe then solicited the help of David Arnsberger… and Texas Radio Live was re-born! Texas Radio Live continues today after Monroe’s untimely death in January 2014.

The Sun Radio Recharge program has enabled Sun Radio to provide financial relief to local musicians through deferring the costs of electricity bills and paying artists to perform.
