The Sexton brothers, Will and Charlie, used to be quite a sight around Austin barrooms, wrapping their fingers around guitar necks on stage before their ages were even into double digits. Among the local talent with whom they sat in as mere children were the Fabulous Thunderbirds and Stevie Ray Vaughan's Double Trouble. Now, of course, the Sextons are 17 (Will) and 19 (Charlie), matured and making highly noticed records of their own.

He's a hotshot guitarist, he doesn't have to shave yet, he's got great cheekbones and his last name is Sexton. But it wasn't Little Charlie playing the Whisky on Tuesday--it was Littler Will, the younger of the Sexton brothers and another Texas prodigy. Will Sexton made his local debut under far more modest circumstances than his ballyhooed big brother did back in May.

"On a lighter note," said David Baerwald during his show at the Mint on Sunday, to introduce a noir-ish out-of-love song titled "The Toughest Whore in Babylon."

"It was a particularly good style for him, because he had small, sloping shoulders and a big head," pointed out Edward Sexton, a prominent Savile Row tailor.

George Tobin is a Los Angeles record producer who has had Top 10 hits with Smokey Robinson and Kim Carnes, but he knew two years ago that he was going to have trouble getting a record company to take a chance on his new discovery: a singer from Norwalk named Tiffany Darwisch. The problem: She was just 14 years old. The reaction, Tobin says, at company after company was: "You've got to be kidding." "Teen stars went out with Donny & Marie." "Come back when she grows up."

A few days ago, Times pop music critic Ann Powers selected three faces to watch in the new year: Melinda Doolittle, Lady Gaga and Relentless 7, the buzzworthy band from the esteemed Ben Harper. In Wednesday's Calendar section, Times staff writer August Brown highlighted a group of local artists who enjoyed a terrific 2008 and are poised for more success in the coming year. But given the number of promising acts likely to generate attention in 2009, the pop staff writers have chosen eight additional up-and-coming performers of whom readers should take note.
