“Austin is positively bursting at the seams with creative talent. As the rest of the musical world organizes SXSW showcases and speculates about the next international star to surprise us with a visit, those hometown heroes are busting tail to build a little momentum. With 2014 in full swing, Culture Map Austin is spotlighting 10 local luminaries planning big things for the year ahead.
1. Elizabeth McQueen
Eight years after joining Texas swing kingpins Asleep at the Wheel, Elizabeth McQueen has finally decided to go her own solo way again. It was an amicable split, of course. McQueen and husband Dave Sanger, who’s still a spoke in the vaunted Wheel, are now focused on their two young children — and McQueen’s burgeoning solo career. Earlier this month, she released her The Laziest Remix EP, featuring noise-rock, hip-hop and R&B-influenced tracks from 2011’s The Laziest Girl in Town, re-recorded with St. Louis avant-soul band Brother Lazaroff. McQueen is anchoring Sundays January 19-February 9 at the Austin Artist Series, hosted by St. David’s Church on East Eighth Street.”
