Meade is a child of the Millennium, yet his guitar style is descendant from the 70’s classic rock age with notes that writhe like exposed nerves. With songs that talk about corrupted love, cocaine, prison, church, and the hard living of the common working man, it’s rather surprising to learn that Meade nearly followed in his father’s footsteps as a church minister. It was his brief stint as a worship leader at his father’s church in Brehnam, Texas playing music to the congregation that put him on the path to music, and it was the countless rock concerts his fathers to him to while growing up that cultivated his ambition to be a music artist.
A former drummer, Meade played in a cover band for years while earning his business degree at Texas A&M in College Station before he peeled back another layer of himself and found a songwriter dwelling there.
Now the frontman of his own band slinging guitar licks with expert precision, his music rolled out with two releases in 2014, his first EP “Long Ways To Go” followed by his first full-length album “Chief of The Sinners.” His next EP “Heartbreak Coming” came in 2016 with a couple of singles to announce his commencement on the Texas Music Chart.
Now based in New Braunfels, Texas with a tour schedule stretching outside the Lone Star state, Meade takes his next perfect ride with his second full-length album “Waves”.

BOIZ is a band from Brownsville, Texas. Their sound is as diverse as its members, ranging from indie, to funk, rock, hip hop, trap, and has influences from video games and anime. However all that music is made with having fun at the center of all of it.
With catchy riffs and melodies, and lyrics about hipsters, fashionistas, and anime girls, the only thing they take seriously it’s putting on a good show. No matter what kind of day you’re having, if it’s a Boiz night out, you’ll always have a good time.
