“The most reinvented version of Americana you’ve ever heard…
like if the rock of Meatloaf was thrown into the folk world”

– Houston Free Press

In 2013, Jarrod Nall (bass) and Jacob Shipman (guitar/vocals) founded The Cover Letter in their garage. Two years later, they released their self-titled EP. The group, now a six-piece, features Evan Runyon (lead guitar), Angie Vanegas (vocals), Fletcher Inzer (keys) and Patrick Barrow (drums). They have been named Top 10 Best New Austin Band by The Austin Chronicle, and have been featured in festivals across the state of Texas, including: Deep Ellum Arts Festival, Pecan Street Festival and Via Colori Festival.

Following the 2017 release of their sophomore EP, Cities Made of Sand, The Cover Letter wrote and recorded a series of four singles. The third single, “Dollhouse,” will be released later this year in November. With a regional tour in sight, the group continues their string of high-intensity shows across the state of Texas. The Cover Letter can be found on Spotify and all major music outlets, as well as all major social media platforms.
