Three Famous Austin Musicians

CAPTAIN LOGO1. Janis Joplin

Born and raised in Port Arthur, Texas, Janis Joplin spent time at the University of Texas in Austin before moving on to San Francisco, where she gained recognition as the lead singer of Big Brother and the Holding Company.

 

2. Willie Nelson

Although he wasn’t originally from Austin, Willie Nelson moved there in 1972 and was inspired by the music scene to rekindle his own recording career.

3. Spoon

One of the more popular modern bands to come out of Austin, Spoon was formed in 1993 and continues to be based in the eclectic city.

Austin has one of the best live music scenes in the country, and Charlie Pierce is an integral part of that scene.
