Jesse Ebaugh is what many would consider Austin's best kept secret. His song craftsmanship, and top shelf playing chops are formidable. Surely his time playing bluegrass, and in the top 10 rock band Heartless Bastards have not hurt. With Jesse's current project The Tender Things, he is not only paying homage to 70's country rock, and the Bakersfield sound, he is also carving out an interesting, and compelling modern traditional country niche. Truly, it is one of the few ways one can describe such a carefully blended kaleidoscope of sounds. The Tender Things don't fit neatly into any music genre to be completely honest.
