“Houston’s great diversity and unified spirit have played big rolls in my developing an eclectic music taste. There has been such a wide and wonderful array of talent coming from our city for years.! To this day, Houstonians are my favorite people. I am honored to join the HoustonLive team. They are helping develop new singer-songwriters who otherwise wouldn’t have platforms to launch from, and helping them build bridges to the rest of the music world," said Frank Liddell, founder Carnival Music. "I met with last year’s winner Lizi Bailey when she and founder Tracy DeJarnett visited Nashville, and I was inspired and impressed. I’m looking forward to hearing the finalists this year in Houston,” added Liddell.

To celebrate the Texas singer/songwriter, HoustonLive will kick off Songwriter Week to celebrate local artists. The first live performance will be Friday May 1st at EQ Heights with HoustonLIve 2019 winners Lizi Bailey and Alex Coba.
