Jeff Austin Band Featuring Danny Barnes, Ross Martin, and Eric Thorin

Formerly of Yonder Mountain String Band, mandolinist Jeff Austin is unstoppable. He is celebrated for his fleet fingers and penchant for improvisation on stage, but those qualities also speak volumes about how he chooses to live. Austin has cultivated his natural musical abilities and allowed himself to be driven by his boldest instincts. In this way, he has been able to build positive, exciting momentum around his life's greatest passion.
Austin's enthusiasm for the vast, vibrant world of music was rooted in him as early as he can remember: "I was always raised very musically. My mom always had music playing; she always sang." It's no surprise then that Austin himself grew up singing too. From beginning to end of his years in grade school just outside of Chicago, he sang in classes, choirs, and musicals, allowing his musical influences to lead him where they may. "I started listening to Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings," Austin says. "And then the Beatles, that turned into Bob Dylan, and then the Grateful Dead and Phish."
It is with this rich personal history at his back that propels Austin into a new creative direction as he prepares to step into the spotlight as a solo artist. On his forthcoming debut project, Austin's songwriting remains rooted in Americana inspiration and the frantic energy of the jam genre but also, reaches even further weaving in more mainstream themes, reminiscent of his co-write contribution "Fiddlin' Around," that was featured on the 2010 Grammy nominated Dierks Bentley album, Up on the Ridge. "I love writing a three-minute song with a hook that would grab a five-hundred-pound marlin as much as I like writing something that goes, 'okay, after the bridge, it's going to open up and just go wide.'"
Indeed, "wide" is what Jeff Austin is all about. He wants new and different, complex and interesting. He wants everything the music world has to offer, and he's willing to work hard to get it.

Jim White VS Packway Handle Band
Jim White's blend of country, folk, and rock meets The Packway Handle Band's high-energy roots-grass style in this much-anticipated collaborative album.
When The Packway Handle Band approached Jim about producing a stylistically unique breakaway record, Jim not only agreed, but proposed a collaboration between the two. Jim had been stockpiling a cache of bluegrass songs that did not easily fit within his usual aesthetic framework. He presented a sampling of these songs to The Packway Handle Band and everyone agreed this was a match made in music heaven.
Jim White vs The Packway Handle Band highlights each artist's individual identities while providing the listener with something captivating and unique.
