Texas Tea is Benjamin P. Dougherty and Kate Jacobson. Their 2006 debut album “Take A Sip”, 2008 follow up “Junkship Recordings”, and a reputation for stellar live performance, has seen the duo strongly establish themselves not only in their home town of Brisbane but right across Australia and indeed the world. Treasured locally, they have taken out the #1 spot on Brisbane’s 4ZZZfm’s Hot 100 two years in a row.

The creation and gestation of “Sad Summer Hits” was an exercise in balancing change with the familiar for Texas Tea. For starters the duo enlisted a rhythm section for the first time in their career. Holing up at Applewood for six days with Myka Wallace on drums and Jo Muller on upright/double bass (the engine room behind Laneous & The Family Yah and many other amazing bands, not to mention two of the finest
executors of their instruments in the country), was uncharted territory for Texas Tea.

Texas Tea have played all over Australia and have also toured quite frequently to Europe, where they have a strong fan base, particularly in the northern regions of France. To date, they have shared the stage with everyone from Ben Kweller (USA), Cold War Kids (USA), Iron and Wine (USA),Justin Townes Earle (USA), Charlie Parr (USA), The Handsome Family (USA), The Mountain Goats (USA), Mick Thomas
(Weddings, Parties, Anything), The Darling Downs (Kim Salmon and Ron Peno) and Abbe May to The Gin Club, The Art of Fighting, The Devastations and many more.
