Meet Max & Heather Stalling, the dynamic singer-songwriter duo from Dallas, TX, bringing a unique blend of lyrics, vocals, and fiddle playing to the heart of Texas and Americana music.

Max Stalling: Armed with a master’s degree in Food Science from Texas A&M University, Max traded his lab coat for a guitar, leaving behind a career as a research scientist at Frito Lay to pursue his dreams as a singer-songwriter. Touring, gigging and hustling for 20+ years, Max has built a large and loyal fanbase; playing pretty much every venue you’ve ever heard of and many you haven’t. With 6 studio albums, three live projects, and a chart-topping history in Americana radio, Max is a staple in the Texas/Red Dirt scene. His star on the South Texas Music Walk of Fame in Corpus Christi stands as a testament to his enduring impact.

Heather Stalling: An award-winning violinist and fiddle player, Heather’s musical journey began at the tender age of 3. As a child and young teenager she competed in fiddle contests across Texas and neighboring states; traveling with her parents while winning trophies and fans along the way. At 18, she was recruited out of college to become a member of "The Texas Gold Minors" in Branson, MO. Upon moving back to Texas she was a highly sought after fiddle and worked with notable bands Bob Schneider, Cory Morrow, Johnny Lee and Mark David Manders among others. She later founded blactopGYPSY with friend Andie Kay Joyner, writing songs, touring extensively and putting out two full length studio albums.

Together They Soar: Max and Heather, married since 2007, are finally combining their musical talents to create a captivating project. Max handles rhythm guitar and lead vocals, while Heather brings her exceptional fiddle skills and harmony vocals to the stage. After years of individual success, their collaboration promises a fresh and exciting musical experience.

The Show: Their performances, a blend of Max's 20+ years of original songs, occasional joint compositions, and well-chosen covers, create a show filled with musical prowess, witty banter, and a touch of humor. First-time listeners can expect a fun balance between solid originals, masterful fiddle playing, and engaging storytelling.

New Beginnings: Max and Heather are thrilled to embark on this joint musical journey, sharing their love for music and each other with audiences old and new. Don't miss the chance to witness the magic as they take their show on the road.
