Angel's Voice, Pot of Gold

I first saw Austin Lucas on the Rival Tour (Tim Barry, Chuck Regan, Ben Nichols) in '08 and he kept up with the best of them... (Avail, Hot Water Music, Lucero; respectively) He's a short, sweaty, red-headed, pot of gold at the end of the rainbow looking dude, but he has a mountain angel's voice and a true passion for his roots. The true heart of a country yodeler.

Jimminy Christmas

I bought this album on the strength of Austin's Suburban Home release "Somebody Loves You." I am now three songs in and I wish I'd spent a great deal more than the nine bucks I've spent. This guy has got a purity rarely found in folk music these days. As a songwriter he humbles me and as a performer and vocalist he manages to hit every moment perfectly. This is music my friends. Before it was trendy to like folk or alt-country the artists brave enough to write it, wrote it anyway... this album obviously springs from that need. It's heartrending and warm and everything that music should be. Buy it.

I am very impressed

After reading Not That Impressed's review and listening to Chuck Ragan's music and found it lacking compared to Mr. Lucas' music. Not to dis Ragan but i found Austin's combination of country, bluegrass, great voice and songwriting to be some of the best in this genre i have found in a long time. Impressed indeed!
