Starting the day on a harmonious and calming note, The Spotify House brought Indie/Country/Folk names like Joseph, Rayland Baxter, and Kacey Musgraves to their stages.

The Porch was the perfect setting for the Portland trio. Austin’s weather was proving to be a hot one, but the crowd of dedicated fans gathered around to hear the breathtaking harmonies performed by the sister group. Joseph hypnotized the audience with their beautiful lyrics and fun covers that included Sylvan Esso’s Hey Mami and Britney Spears’ Toxic.

Out on the main stage, Rayland Baxter and his band were all smiling ear to ear as they approached the stage. The fellas from Tennessee charmed the crowd with oldies from Rayland’s first album, and of course his newest album, Imaginary Man. Mixing country vibes with rock n’ roll guitar licks, this was a performance that was made for Spotify House. Rayland set the mood for the closing act and his friend, Kacey Musgraves. Fans were climbing trees from the outside of the venue to see the country star as she gave a jaw dropping performance. Closing the show with a cover of These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ while the sun set, was the perfect way to end day 2 of The Spotify House.
