This is a busy time of year for the Texas music acts working with the Dallas-based Kirtland Records label.

After finishing a sold-out European tour, Sarah Jaffe is back on the road, supporting Norah Jones.

“I feel honored and lucky to be playing music and get this opportunity,” Jaffe said. “It will be nice playing in front of people who are coming to listen – both to me and to her.”

Jaffe will perform during both Denton’s NX35 and Austin’s SXSW festivals. Her debut CD, “Suburban Nature,” will be in stores May 18. “Vulnerable,” the first release from the work, is available on iTunes right now.

Bob Schneider just shot a music video for “40 Dogs.”  He isn’t saying yet who was involved with the video, but does say it will be amazing. Schneider will also perform during SXSW. Included in his Austin schedule will be a show at Rachel Ray’s annual Feedback party. He will then tour the east coast, and move on then to the UK.

Smile Smile’s new CD, “Truth on Tape,” is in stores now. It proves that failed relationships can help create a good piece of music. Elle Magazine said about the CD, “Feeling lonely or simply let down by love? Crack open a beer and pop in ‘Truth on Tape,’ a break-up album that will lift your spirits and maybe even open your heart to possibility – but not necessarily the romantic kind.”

Meanwhile, the favorite sons of north Texas, Eleven Hundred Springs, are busy promoting their new CD, “This Crazy Life.” “Show Me the Money” is the first release and is climbing the Texas music charts. The band is constantly on tour.

One thing is certain: any act associated right now with Kirtland Records is going to stay busy.
