William Clark Green is native to East Texas — but has seen his musical success in the Texas scene grow from the western side of the Lone Star State, back to east. That makes sense, seeing how that’s where he started his band after graduating Texas Tech in Lubbock.

His 2013 album, "Rose Queen," was a critical success, and one of the biggest of the year. At least one of the singles released, thus far ("She Likes the Beatles," "Rose Queen"), landed on most everyone's Top 10 lists, for the year.
