Sweet Spirit

Fronted by Sabrina Ellis (A Giant Dog), Sweet Spirit is a soulful rock nine-piece with strong roots in Austin. “Austin smells like weed, sunscreen, and BBQ. Austin sounds like garages and storage facilities and downtown venues exploding with bass, drums, cymbals, guitars,” they tell us. Check out their latest full-length release, Cokomo. Last year the band toured with fellow Austinites Spoon.
