Wood & Steel

Kenny Karr


Born and raised in Texas, Kenny cut his musical teeth on 70’s Acoustic Rock, playing bass in a family band called “True Texas” during the mid 80’s.
After moving to Orlando, Florida, he was invited to audition for the “Kim Hightower Band.”  Running through some music together, their musical connection was almost immediate, and began performing around central Florida for the next four years. In 2012, Kenny left the band, moved to south Florida, and put together his Americana band “Altered Roots”.
In 2019, Kenny ventured out to concentrate more on his solo/duo act, “Wood & Steel.” As fate would have it, coming full circle, Kenny moved back to Texas in 2021, and began booking solo/duo shows again as “Wood & Steel.” In March of 2021, he began the search for additional musicians who shared his love for “Outlaw Country-Rock and Roots.” “Wood & Steel” has hit the road running booking shows around Houston and Southeast Texas.

JB Barnett

“He is a singer/songwriter from Houston, Texas and a true troubadour at heart. After college, he spent 18 months touring and traveling throughout Australia and Southeast Asia, and this experience was the inspiration behind “Anything But Plan B”.


Often compared to the likes of Jack Johnson and John Mayer, JB Barnett’s music is a fusion of soulful melodies with catchy, witty and inspiring lyrics. It is guaranteed to get stuck in your head. He is the sole mastermind behind his records, writing, performing, recording, producing, mixing and mastering each track.”

Ryleigh Angelina

Ryleigh Angelina’s style of music is as if The Cranberries, Alains Morissette, Shaina Twain and Stevie Nicks
collaborated with the writing styles of Lauren Daigle and Switchfoot.  She is inspired by many
different music genres which is evident throughout her songs as you will find a wide range of
melodic styles in my music.

In November 2023 she released my first studio album called “Beautiful Collide”. She has played all over
Texas in places such as Brazoria County, Houston, Navasota, and Bellville. This year she’ll be taking
her album across state lines for a mini tour of our neighboring Southern states such as
Tennessee, Alabama, Florida and more.

Her mission as a singer/songwriter is to write music that challenges our generations mindset
while inspiring us to hold onto love and hope through all seasons of life. Faith inspires my
songwriting and is evident throughout the majority of my songs.
