Call it a happy accident of 19th-century design, but the Depot has terrific acoustics. Voices carry and fill the room without ever crowding it (though the whoosh of a passing train occasionally joins the chorus). Maybe that’s how we attract national touring artists as well as talented local performers.

Winner of the 2018 Woody Guthrie Songwriting Competition for “Dreamers,” Claudia Gibson writes memorable songs featuring what the Houston Music Review terms “her beautiful voice and thoughtful lyrics.” The Texas Hill Country singer-songwriter’s current album, Step By Step, was produced by the Band of Heathens’ Gordy Quist, who calls her “a soulful storyteller and a vivid poet.” Claudia has performed on live radio stage during Austin's SXSW Festival, and was featured in the 2018 Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival. A Hudson Valley native, Claudia has called Wimberley, Texas her home for 10+ years. Her new EP is called Louisiana Sky.
