Austin is mountain jams and finger-pickin' riffs with fierce, pounding rhythm. He claps and stomps and screams earnestly about growing up in Tallahassee, his own place in the city, and his own personal struggles with modern consumer and music culture. His style is rasp, menace, and grit: Johnny Cash, Henry Rollins, and Tom Waits. But, above all, his songs are narratives, and Austin is a grass-roots, Americana storyteller. He's the Bruce Springsteen of house-show folk punk.
"Ventures of a Wild Heart," Austin's debut EP, is available now from all major retailers and platforms.
