Landon Austin

BandAlternativeSinger/Songwriter

A perfect harmony of the obvious and the subtle. Taking bits of bluesy ache, 70s folk rock tradition, and Americana Pop, he creates a lush composite that pushes ahead with a stylistic mix that's too elusive for simple descriptions, generating a sound all his own.
