"Many, Many Thanks!!"

Thank-you for a tremendous performance and show at our 2008 year-end company awards celebration. I know I speak for many here at Lucas Group. You played a great mix of country and dance music. Not only are your vocals exceptional, but your band members are real pros. I would not hesitate to recommend The Ashley Austin Band to anyone planning a special event.

Your web site touts you as as "fireball" entertainer with "originality in your vocals that is evident in the uniqueness of your voice". After seeing you perform I would say that your talent goes far beyond what your web site states.

I believe you have a great future as an entertainer and I wish you, and your band and crew, the very best of luck on your journey to stardom.

"18 YEAR OLD LUMINARY’S, “TO THE MOON & BACK,” TAKES TOP HONOR"

ASHLEY AUSTIN WINS SONG AWARD WITH ORIGINAL

GRAPEVINE, TEXAS: With the applause from her knock-‘em-dead performance at the 23rd Annual Grapefest Wine Festival last week having barely died down, 18 year old Ashley Austin snagged first place in a local radio station’s music award contest. The Keller, Texas native, won Hoss (aka Don Cudd) the Boss’s Hossey Music Award Song Voting Contest Saturday, September 26, edging out Shelby Downing for the top spot.



An attractive, talented singer/songwriter, Austin’s gritty, brooding lyrics are a perfect compliment to the elegant desperation you feel from her music in the spirited love ballad that won the contest, “To the Moon & Back.” And it’s no wonder she took first place! The same commanding presence that brought such an eye-popping, jaw-dropping, and forceful performance at the festival, has found its way into the studio and onto her CD.



“It is completely amazing being up on a big stage, connecting with the fans and hearing them singing back,” says Ms. Austin. “Music is my life and I can’t think of anything better.” You know that’s a fact when an 18 year old is sacrificing school dances, social activities, and sleep to produce her inaugural CD. Due out shortly, the buoyant mix of Adult Contemporary and Pop/Rock is filled with the same distinct class and grace that makes Ashley Austin and her music hit you like a force of nature!

"One to Watch"

Dallas Morning News reported that “Poor David's Pub Owner David Card's ear has been honed by nearly 30 years of live music at his club, so when he says that Ashley Austin is ‘one of them young up-and-comers’ and that you should ‘catch her before she hits the big time,’ he's probably on to something.”

"High Energy Entertainment"

Bio

Texas has produced many a country and rock music legend, from Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Tanya Tucker to Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Selena Quintanilla, and ZZ Top among others. That rich country/rock history has continued into the Millennium, producing some of the country’s hottest up and coming acts to eventually hit the national scene, and Grapevine, TX local singer/songwriter Ashley Austin is no exception. Since winning the ‘Most Promising Teen Vocalist’ Title in 2006 at the World Showcase in Las Vegas, Ashley has been on a roll toward the big time, so much so that the Dallas Morning News reported that “Poor David's Pub Owner David Card's ear has been honed by nearly 30 years of live music at his club, so when he says that Ashley Austin is ‘one of them young up-and-comers’ and that you should ‘catch her before she hits the big time,’ he's probably on to something.”

Singing new country, pop, and classic rock in her live show, and boasting a pallet of derivative influences that include Sugarland, Gretchen Wilson, Miranda Lambert, Katy Perry, K.T. Tunstall, and Pat Benetar, Ashley Austin, according to Pegasus News, “is destined to become a major player in Southern Country/Rock Music. If you have not seen this (artist)…treat yourself to an evening of high energy entertainment & vocals that are unforgettable.” In commenting on what drives her passion for music, past professional ambitions, Ashley shares with fans that “singing has always been a part of my life, and will continue to be. I love to share my music with an audience and feed off of their energy. It's an amazing feeling to see people having a good time and knowing that you are part of it. I love my fans and appreciate all their support!”

In addition to her music fans, a growing chorus of critical praise has blessed Ashley lately, including Gigmasters.com’s hailing of her “passionate style of bluesy country meets southern rock brought together by rich powerful vocals and soulful deliverance.” Additionally, she has received press coverage on such popular e-music news sites as www.culturemob.com, www.countrylegends921.com, www.bandmix.com, femaleentertainers.blogspot.com, and www.toppix.com.
