Micky and The Motorcars
Micky and The Motorcars
Micky and the Motorcars, with their own band of Americana rock, bring an optimism and integrity only acquired after performing so long the only thing left to tell is the truth.
Eleven years and six albums after MMC was founded in Challis, Idaho, the band still writes more than 90 percent of its music as it defines the lives of brothers Micky Braun (vocals, acoustic guitar) Gary Braun (vocals, guit
ars, mandolin, harmonica) Joe Fladger (bass), Dustin Schafer (lead guitar) and Shane Vannerson (drums, percussion).
Micky and the Motorcars may be self-described as "a little rough around the edges," but with its rocking sound, MMC shares real thoughts, is full of depth, and has a honest, raw emotion and energy bleeding through Micky's heart straight out into the crowd. Anyone who has ever loved and lost or loved and drank or loved at all knows exactly where he's coming from and what he's talking about in a sincere, piercing way.
It's also made Micky one of the most sought after songwriting collaborators on the scene, and consequently MMC songs have credits to brother Willy Braun, Randy Rogers, Cody Canada, former Jack Ingram bassist Robert Kearns, as well as Kevin, Dustin and Savannah Welch. Throughout its tenure, MMC's Braun front men have been quoted repeatedly as "just wanting to play good songs."
For Micky and Gary, whose genetic musical legacy precedes them, playing and singing is damn near the only life they've ever known. The boys grew up in the Western mountains, playing music with their family: older brothers (Reckless Kelly's Willy and Cody Braun) and father (full-time musician, Muzzie Braun). The boys' paternal grandparents were both were full-time musicians as well, and the boys watched their father play in his own Braun brother band with their uncles Billy and Gary.
For MMC's Braun brothers, they hope to create their own legacy — of doing what feels good, what sounds right, and hoping it pays off. So far, it has. MMC has come a long way from playing for free and sleeping on random floors and couches.
Now, travelling nationwide more than 200 days year, the most rewarding thing for MMC is watching the raw emotion of the crowds. There's an excitement, Gary says, never really knowing how everything is going to work out. But the ups and downs of the road somehow make it all worthwhile for the Motorcars, who don't have any plans of slowing down.

Aaron Einhouse
Story-teller… Musician… Performer…
Aaron Einhouse of Austin, Texas, has joined the next generation of singer/
songwriters influenced by the likes of Robert Earl Keen, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Steve
Earle.
Einhouse became interested in Americana/Texas folk music after attending his
uncle’s funeral about a decade ago. It was then he heard Townes Van Zandt’s
trademark tune, “To Live is to Fly,” and Jerry Jeff Walker’s “Gettin’ By.” Still in high
school, the experience for Einhouse became the starting point of his journey as a
member of the newest generation of Texas troubadours.
Einhouse is a storyteller, first and foremost. He weaves tales of family, friends, first
loves, and the natural beauty of Texas. His songs create vivid images that resonate
with a growing legion of listeners — young and old alike.
Relatable lyrics make his music a fan favorite. Whether it’s the wisdom of a family
elder, prowling cougars (in the bars not the backcountry), or a trip to the Crockett
County Line, the crowd finds his performances engaging, insightful, and always
entertaining.
With such wide appeal, it’s not a stretch to say his songs may soon become anthems
at local watering holes, concert halls, and backyard barbecues.
“Aaron is a true son of Texas, poetry, and the open road. He has an eye and a feeling
for the human condition and his fellow man, and a stage presence that a bunch of
us would trade for. There is a deep sensitivity in his songs, as well as humor and
pathos. He’s as real as the places and folks he writes and sings about, and I’m looking
forward to the next song.”
- Walt Wilkins
“I’m always excited when I find a new, really good, fresh, talented songwriter . . .
and I’ve been excited about Aaron Einhouse since the first time he showed up at my
weekly “Songwriters’ Circle.” When you hear his new album, you’ll see why. It is
filled with fresh new, well written songs, performed and produced with exceptional
taste and skill.”
