About The Artist

Host Zach Balch may have grown up in a flat West Texas town where nobody locks their doors, but his sharp wit, thought provoking words and driving ambition stretch much further. After trading small town life for the bustle of the Dallas metroplex, Zach’s acoustic folk sound took a bluesy-pop turn, culminating in an alt-country sensibility that artists like Ryan Adams and Pete Yorn are known for. When onstage with the rest of the band, pianist Ryan Pool, bassist Robert Willis and guitarist Tyler Martin, Zach Balch and The Company take on an electrifying big-city dimension. The result is the personal prose of David Ramirez meets the clever, full-bodied Alt-Country/Rock of Ryan Adams, served up with a satisfying helping of the Blues.

This Monday night series at Opening Bell Coffee has 2-3 artists playing per night. Audience discussions and questions are welcomed! If you'd like to play the round please email us at

Chris Norwood

Dallas-based singer-songwriter Chris J Norwood knows “Love Keeps Us Strong,” and believes his new music reflects that. The 11-track debut, out NOW on State Fair Records runs the gamut of emotions, and it’s a fitting tribute to the tumultuous times that landed the alternative country artist where he is today. Most of the new songs on “Longshot” were written in the year leading up to the birth of his first daughter, with some tracks added after the family gained a beautiful new member. But his first child wasn’t the only addition to his family—Norwood, previously a one-man producing machine on his two EPs, has joined forces with a new producer and a talented team of musicians that promises to make this album his best work yet.
