Austin Meade Hearkens to Classic Rock Age with New Album ‘Waves’
On March 1st Austin Meade will deliver a nostalgic ride through the time honored sounds of rock mixed with Americana on his new album Waves. If you preorder the album, on February 1st you will immediately receive the first track “7 Letters."
“Life to me is like surfing. Whatever part of life you are in, it’s all waves. You have to sit there and take a few bad waves until you find the right one. The bad ones are inevitable…so, you just have to ride that shit out.” –Austin Meade
Waves keeps excellent company with 7013 Records who released fellow Texas artist Red Shahan’s two previous acclaimed albums. It took all of 7 days to record this album, a solid week of ideas traded back and forth between Meade and producer Elijah Ford who also played bass and sang backing harmonies. The brutal honesty that is the foundation of their relationship became the compass towards the album’s true north.
Austin Meade and his band are: Austin Meade (Lead vocal, guitar), David Willie (Lead guitar, harmony vocals), Seth Foster (bass, harmony vocals) and Brandon Turner (Drums).
