The Prairie Scholars
(Longmont, CO, USA)
All Original West Texas Soul Music
The Prairie Scholars: Husband and wife songwriting team, Andy and Jessica Eppler perform together blending Andy’s intricate and poetic Texas folk with Jessica’s driving and haunting rock melodies. Honest, aggressive and passionate The Prairie Scholars document in their music a journey out of the flatlands and into the shadowy world in search of a home. Jessica, a Sweetwater, TX native, moved to Levelland, TX upon enrolling at South Plains College. She quickly earned the respect of her peers with her captivating songwriting and classically inspired musicality. While at school she met Andy who had also been making a name for himself as a prolific songwriter by incessant recording and performing in nearby Lubbock, his birthplace. Soon the two were married and began producing material. In 2009 they packed their bags and moved to lovely Longmont, CO. In Longmont The Prairie Scholars found a community that was supportive and encouraging which made making the art much easier. Since moving to Longmont, The Prairie Scholars and have released several collections: Strangers in the Modern Era (2010), Live Wires (2010), The Wasteland Ramble (2012), Live Wires II (2013), Wasted Tracks (2013) and their new single 100 Year Flood (2013) which The Prairie Scholars released to raise money for a community charity after a devastating flood in their beloved Longmont.
The Prairie Scholars are active supporters of their local community and are proud to make their home on the Front range of Colorado. Come visit them at prairiescholars.com and get a free album!
