Austin Lucas is currently on his “House By House” Tour (see dates below), and he gives us a glimpse into what drives him to keep making music and hitting the road. You can grab tickets to the shows here.

“Dear friends, I’ve begun this crazy journey towards making a new record. Check out this video blog and follow my adventures as I journey near and far, into the homes of old friends and fans alike. All while crowdsourcing my soon to be recorded new album, Immortal Americans.” –¬†Austin Lucas

About Austin Lucas:

Hailing from Bloomington, Indiana. Austin could harmonize before he could read, spending six years singing with the Indiana University Children’s Choir. The young musician discovered punk rock and spent much of his youth as bassist, guitarist and vocalist for bands in that genre. In 2003 Lucas moved to the Czech Republic. He returned to the states in 2008, having long since re-thought his musical direction. Lucas moved toward the Americana-based music and songwriting of his childhood, developing his now signature lyrical and melodic calling cards, and unveiling a country-tinged vocal style.

Austin has released a catalogue of solo albums starting with The Common Cold in 2006. Subsequently came Putting the Hammer Down in 2007, Bristle Ridge (with Chuck Ragan) in 2008, At War with Freak Folk, also in 2008, and Somebody Loves You in 2009. After signing with New West Records, Stay Reckless came out in 2013, followed by his independently released Between the Moon and the Midwest. Austin has toured extensively with Willie Nelson, Langhorne Slim, Dawes, Chuck Ragan, Jamey Johnson, Joe Pug, William Elliot Whitmore, Scott H. Biram and Cory Branan.

The independent artist is currently on a self-booked house show tour. Austin aims to connect with his ever-loyal fans on a grassroots level more intimate than a club or festival tour as well as independently fund the production, marketing, and promotion of his upcoming studio album Immortal Americans.
