Shaking up the Texas country rock scene.

If you are a fan of Koe Wetzel, Treaty Oak Revival, or Kolby Cooper, turn your heads to your next favorite artist out of the Texas scene: Sterling Elza. The young artist who grew up in the Texas Panhandle and now calls New Braunfels home grew up in a family of musicians, making the choice to pursue singing/songwriting as a career a no-brainer.

Elza’s talent has been exemplified in previous singles like “Red Light” and “Framed,” and his collaboration with the West Texas boys of Treaty Oak Revival on “Thrown Away.”

And today, the ragged rock and roll sound is amplified through his new single, “Happy.”

From the heavy guitar chugs that open up the single, listeners know they are in for a head-banging style melody, but the lyrics hit home on the heartbreak ballad. The single is the ultimate middle finger to someone you care about, not giving you the time of day. The single follows a formula that makes for a perfect sad song with a hint of anger.

“I’ve tried so long to make this work
So tired of being treated
Like a piece of dirt
Guess all of those happy memories
Only meant shit to me

Cause I tried to make you happy
Yeah, it’s just a waste of my time…”

This song will surely get you fired up when you think about someone from your past who has done you wrong, or is a surefire way to help you move on from a recent heartbreak.

Sterling Elza is quickly rising to stardom, and if you like this single, it’s time to hop on his train and check out his other work.
