Dallas has always had an artistic soul. The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community. Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive. Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.
Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Northwest Dallas that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

A little over three years ago, I found myself awake early, way too early, one fateful spring morning. My mood was unpleasant and irritable, a permanent scowl sprawled across my face. As I arrived at my workplace, behold, in the distance I saw a sight. Read more>>

I wanted to do something I enjoyed doing, which was music. After work, I would practice even more, network with different party promoters and clubs until I landed an opportunity.
