Discover Baytown Americana Band Market Junction

The latest crop of Texas bands are producing some great sounds, notable among which is the Houston area outfit Market Junction.

The band's first music release was in 2012, but they are really getting their footing thanks to the latest batch of singles from a forthcoming full-length album. Their music combines influences such as Americana, Southern and progressive rock to make their own sound, which flows nicely with their noteworthy songwriting.

Vocalist Matt Parrish and guitarist/harmony singer Justin Lofton visited KETR to talk about being in a rising band and trying to stand out from the crowd, how they tackle songwriting, and why public radio matters.

Find more about the band at their website, and hear Notably Texan weekdays from 11am to 2pm 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.
