Jeff Plankenhorn plays a soulful, distinctly Austin brand of roots rock that, over the past several years, has gained him a devoted national following and a seat among the very best contemporary Americana songwriters. His confident, catchy-as-hell fourth studio album, Sleeping Dogs was released to rave reviews (Rolling Stone Country, the Boot, Twangville, among others) and spent a good chunk of 2018 on the Roots Rock and Americana radio charts (#5 and #44).

In Austin, he says, few players rehearse. You show up and you play, for better or for worse. That freewheeling philosophy, and the disciplined songwriting craft that underpins it, is the result of Plankenhorns almost ten-year run as a member of the Resentments, a supergroup of sorts that hosts one of the longest running residencies in Austin.

Over the course of five solo albums, Plankenhorn has drawn on a wide range of styles, combining influences from electric blues, progressive bluegrass, sacred steel, and power-pop t
