Justin Adams — Justin Adams


Country

Joshua Boydston
Bixby native Justin Adams is a former college football standout with a school record for consecutive games played at Northern Iowa, and that intensity and determination have informed his new path as a country singer. His self-titled debut EP is a sleek, polished recording in line with the genre’s like-minded, clean-cut vocalists Easton Corbin, Luke Bryan and Chris Young.

John Moreland — In the Throes


Rock

Joshua Boydston
With the soul of a poet and the look of a Sons of Anarchy extra, Tulsa’s John Moreland has been gifted the sort of gravely, booming voice that does Bruce Springsteen proud and a similar understanding of the universal human experience. It’s made for some fantastic records — both as a solo artist and with his dissolved Black Gold Band — and In the Throes is his best yet.

Jumpship Astronaut — Lights Burn Out


Electronica

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma has never been the haven for electronic rock music that it is for country, folk and, as of late, psychedelic pop, but from the sound of Lights Burn Out, Oklahoma City upstart Jumpship Astronaut seems intent on changing that.
