Austin James Hicks troubadour and songwriter from The East Bay of San Francisco sounds like he has been channeling the likes of Steve Forbert, Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Ryan Adams on his acoustic guitar for years. Hard to pin down, it is best described as Americana but if you get the chance to catch his full electric band, hold onto your hat. Austin finally decided to lay his own tracks down in the studio with an EP after a successful Kickstarter campain. It is set for relase on June 15. Catch this rising prolific artist soon at a street corner, coffe house, brew pub, or club near you.
