A husband-wife duo, Riders Against the Storm -- two-time Austin Music Awards ‘Band of the Year' honorees -- bring stage-conquering and crowd-commanding hip hop to every venue, and have opened for acts like Wu-Tang Clan. (Listen now!)
Riders Against the Storm’s pick: “Solo” by Mobley
“Mobley is probably our favorite artist out of Austin right now,” the group says, essentially echoing our own feelings on the artist. Given his killer voice, undeniable charisma, and ability to transition effortlessly between instruments, when you’re watching Mobley perform at an Austin venue, it’s just as easy to imagine him killing it onstage at the Grammys. (And when we blink, hell, he’ll probably be there.) The artist’s EP, Some Other Country, dropped in April, and RAS picked one standout track. “'Solo has a catchy pop vibe that builds and sticks with you afterwards,” the couple says.
