7 DFW Musicians You Should Be Following on Instagram

Tired of thumbing through a sea of boring Instagram pictures. These Dallas bands have their IG game on point.

1. Sam Lao: @samwiththehair

Dallas based hip-hop princess Sam Lao is not only a talented lyricist she is also a model and artist. She uses Instagram to showcase ALL of her talents. And you thought Kim K broke the internet.


2. Leon Bridges: @leonbridgesmusic

Watching Fort Worth singer-songwriter Leon Bridges perform is like stepping back in time (when music had soul). Much like his music, Leon’s Instagram account pays homage to decades past with stunning photography.

3. Madison King: @madisaurusrexx

Music, food & selfies. That about sums up what you’ll find on country singer Madison King’s feed. I mean, who doesn’t love a beautiful girl who can sing AND cook. Plus, we just can’t get enough of her cloudy-eyed Boston Terrier named #ChiliParty. (Yes, she even has her own hashtag!)

4. Goodnight Ned: @goodnight_ned

Goodnight Ned entertains on and off stage. Their Instagram account is like a delicious box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get and you wouldn’t have it any other way. 25% show flyers, 25% band photos & 50% random shit.

5. Sealion: @sealionband

Sealion’s Instagram account has everything you’d expect from a bunch of Dallas punks promoting a new album – crazy tour antics, dimly-lit images taken from the crowd at some wild shows and then there’s this little gem right here.

6. Sarah Jaffe: @sarahjaffemusic

Something you’ll come to know about Sarah Jaffe, she’s incredibly funny and she loves social media.  Her Instagram feed is a steady stream of funny backstage shenanigans and snapshots from her time on the road.     

7. Luke Wade: @lukewademusic

Thanks to Fort Worth’s Luke Wade we’re addicted to The Voice. He made it to the Top 10! Watch him week after week on NBC as he moves up the ranks and follow his Instagram feed for candid behind-the-scenes photos and videos.
