Since relocating to Texas from Washington D.C., singer/songwriter Spyche (pronounced "Spike") has found a happy home amongst the players and music lovers of The Lone Star State. This talented multi-instrumentalist has discovered herself in high demand from other bands, yet still finds time to self-release her own music as well.

Her latest solo release, In Case Of Somethingness, was produced by John Dufihlo (Deathray Davies, John Singer Sergeant, and Apples In Stereo) and features a range of sounds from traditional country to roots to unclassifiable. Duets with Cricket Taylor and Johnny McNabb highlight the album, which just released in late 2014.

Spyche spent some time with Matt Meinke at KETR recently, and spoke about the new record, her involvement in bands such as Gorehounds and Hell, Texas, the upcoming Dallas show with Sara Hickman, and her love for public radio.

More about the artist is available from her website.

Notably Texan airs weekdays from Noon-3pm on KETR.

Born in Dallas, Texas, Matt moved to the Sulphur Springs area in 1990 and settled in Commerce shortly thereafter. Having dreamed of working in radio since childhood, he began working at KETR while taking Radio-Television courses at Texas A&M University-Commerce in 1993. Matt has transitioned from a part-time worker and pupil of KETR, to the station’s Chief Announcer/Producer and supervisor of student broadcasters. A familiar voice of 88-9 KETR, Matt has hosted such shows as The Late Nite Lion, and can currently be heard as host of Notably Texan.
