JEFF AUSTIN IN CONCERT:
Progressive bluegrass hero and former Yonder Mountain String Band member Jeff Austin made his highly anticipated solo debut in 2015 with The Simple Truth, an ambitious and deeply personal collection of new material featuring appearances by a range of bluegrass veterans. On the road with his backing band, Austin has proven that life as a solo artist suits him just fine, delivering encore-worthy performances full of soaring harmonies, virtuosic mandolin picking, and plenty of his gregarious personality. Whether he's playing old Yonder Mountain favorites or tearing through finger-licking cuts from his solo material, Austin is a consummate showman who always gets ticket buyers tapping their toes and forgetting their sorrows with his energetic performances.
Born and raised in the Chicago suburbs, Jeff Austin attended the University of Cincinnati before relocating to Urbana, IL. He soon met banjo player Dave Johnston, who encouraged him to learn the mandolin and join his group The Bluegrassholes. After the group dissolved Austin relocated to Nederlander, CO, where he linked up with Adam Aijala and Ben Kaufmann to form the Yonder Mountain String Band. Beginning with 1999's Elevation LP, Austin released ten albums with the band, including three that topped the Bluegrass Albums Chart. He parted ways with the group in 2014 due to creative differences, and in 2015 he made his solo debut with The Simple Truth. The album was a hit with critics, featuring guests like Todd Snider, Cody Dickinson, and the Royal Hornes and drawing Austin out for extensive touring with his talented backing band. With the album still fresh in fans' minds, Austin has ticket buyers eagerly awaiting the chance to hear new favorites like "What the Night Brings" and "Scrapbook Pages" in concert.
