Consider the group's sound a sun tea, steeped in sexy lyrics, bright horns and churning rhythms, left out to brew on a sizzling Southwestern street.

The Austin-based band grabbed the attention of listeners nationwide after performances that included an appearance at the SXSW festival. And T Bird and the Breaks has kept its fans listening with studio releases such as the 2009 debut, "Learn About It," and 2011's "Never Get Out Of This Funk Alive."

Lead vocalist Tim Crane, whose solo release "T Bird Is Too Good For You" also came out in 2011, delivers a raspy cadence that flows with a cool confidence. His innuendo-heavy lyrics are a fitting complement to the fiery riffs and simmering rhythms that are bound to have audiences on their feet.

By combining elements from several genres in what perhaps are their rawest forms, T Bird and the Breaks has carved its name into the branches of modern music, and fans across the country are wasting no time in making the dance floor a sweaty, funky place to be once the band takes the stage.
