SEASON ONE | Project ATX6: The Road to Reeperbahn chronicles the unforgettable journey of six independent musicians from Austin as they travel into the heart of Hamburg's Red-Light District for a sold out performance at Reeperbahn Festival.
Along the way, we find that each musician is on a journey of their own. Dana Falconberry, who is ten years into an independent career, confronts the archaic vision of how difficult an impassioned life as an artist can be. Jesse Moore, who also a decade into his life's work, is challenged by the growth of his band, East Cameron Folkcore. Carson McHone is fresh on Austin's music scene as an emerging alternative country songwriter. Aisha Burns shows us that, despite all her wisdom, life is not only about that chasing dreams but there is greater meaning to be found in the relationships we cherish along the way. Mrs. Glass is born of another time and, with each performance, he channels many blues legends and leaves audiences speechless. Leo Rondeau is faced with decisions that will forever impact his life.
Backstory: In 2014, musician turned filmmaker, Chris Brecht, documented the travel and unexpected success of Austin's first ever music export project. Season one is the first of many seasons to come. This great unprecedented export project has become a story of its own, and proven each year that it will facilitate and document the travel of independent musicians from Austin to music festivals around the globe.
