A name from the Texas scene you need to familiarize yourself with.

If you are a fan of Treaty Oak Revival, you’ll fall quickly for Sterling Elza.

The red dirt artist who called New Braunfels home was born into a musical family, making it an easy choice for him to pursue a career on stage full-time. With his grungy take on country music, he falls right in line with the other big names coming out of the scene today, but he still has a sound that lets him stand out from the crowd.

After his hit with Treaty Oak Revival, “Throw Away,” Elza is stepping out on his own, releasing a stellar track, “Red Light.” After weeks of teasing the single, it is finally here.

“’Red Light’ is out now!! So stoked for y’all to finally hear this song. We had a blast making it and hope y’all enjoy it.

Still got a whole lot of cool shit rolling out in the next few weeks.”

What a blessing with that caption, new music today, and the promise of more to come.

“Red Light” brings the gritty lyrics and grunge rock sound amplified as Elza sings about shutting out the world and turning to vices to solve your issues.

“Turn to the bottle when my life’s full throttle
I guess that’s why I push them away
I don’t regret a single thing I say
It’s hard for me to take a blame
Don’t give a f*ck what they think…” 

However, he finds that when you don’t face your problems head-on, you fall into a cycle of toxic habits, numbing the pain of your emotions.

“I’m numb
From things that help me not feel any more
I’m done
Feeling like love’s gotta be the hardest chore…”

The ragged rock ‘n’ roll sound makes this one you’ll have on repeat.

All you Koe Wetzel, Treaty Oak Revival, Dylan Wheeler, and Slade Coulter fans out there who haven’t listened yet, turn yourself onto Sterling Elza.

I can guarantee you’ll like his stuff.
