Ladies and Gentlemen... Brant Croucher!

Houston based Singer-songwriter, Brant Croucher has a particular kind of "country" music that tends to be more on the folk/americana side of the genre. I've performed with Brant on many occasions, even a fundraiser where we shared the same stage as Pat Green, Sammy Kershaw, and Jerry Jeff Walker

The second video is a song written by Brant about our grandfather and grandmother, Hugh and Lou Brantley.

I helped record the song and make the video.

I performed with the dignitaries for roughly two years. 2014-2016.

During that time, we accomplished many impressive feats. Performed regularly at local venues, Opening Bell, Two Corks and a Bottle, Ten Bells Tavern, Stoney's Wine Lounge, The Balcony Club, The Gingerman, and more

In 2014 we toured the East Coast on our way to The Zlatne Uste Golden Festival, in Brooklyn NY where we performed on January 19th, 2014. 

We performed a world debut of the original composition, Universal Language, at the Dallas Museum of Art on Nov. 2nd 2014. We later performed the same piece for the Dallas UN chapter at their 76th Anniversary event in the City Performance Hall, on November 3rd 2015.

The Obscure Dignitaries also work with another local group: The 8th St. Orkestar. Combined Winds, Brass, Vocals, Drums, and Guitar.
