West Texas Soul music. Inspired by the gritty wisdom which is sometimes found out in those desert flatlands.
Husband and wife team, Andy and Jessica Eppler join forces, blending Andy's lyric centric Texas folk with Jessica's ragtime inspired rock and roll. Honest, aggressive and passionate, The Prairie Scholars work with themes of disenchantment, identity and universal truth. While exploring these themes, they ventured to Colorado and after several tours through the area finally relocated from Lubbock, Texas to Longmont, Colorado in 2009. The Prairie Scholars record and produce their material through their independent label, Velvet Syntax Records.
