Sound Advice: Austin Lucas at Otherlands




This Sunday, September 16 the local acoustic venue Otherlands will host an alt-country artist very much on the rise: Indiana singer/songwriter Austin Lucas.

Lucas first emerged on the scene in 2006 with the critically-acclaimed album The Common Cold. He has since gone on to tour with everyone from local ex-pat Cory Branan to country legend Willie Nelson, and his 2009 collaboration with Hot Water Music frontman Chuck Ragan, Bristle Ridge, was a top-ten record on the Billboard Magazine bluegrass charts.

Lucas' latest solo record, last year's excellent A New Home in the Old World, was released by the up-and-coming Little Rock label Last Chance Records. Here's a live clip of Lucas playing one of the album's strongest cuts, "Thunder Rail," backed by Murfreesboro rockers Glossary:
