West Texas Music - Austin Ladd Roberts
by AUSTIN LADD ROBERTS
(North Richland Hills, Texas)
From the earliest days of "Outlaw Music" in Austin, Texas, Austin Ladd was a regular at the Armadillo World Headquarters, Saxon Pub, Threadgill's and many, many others. His music has been described as "Texas Roots" and "Americana" - with a voice described as "Lyle Lovett meets Gordon Lightfoot". Not quite folk, not quite country - defined by fingerstyle acoustic guitar playing that rests nicely between James Taylor and Chet Atkins.
Over the years, Austin Ladd has played shows with many of the legends of what is now known as "Alternative Country" and "Americana" - from Texas Outlaws such as Willy Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker, Merle Haggard, Joe Ely and Leon Russell to Pure Prairie League and The Byrds. Recent tours have added Sugarland and the Alt Country Rockers Cowboy Buddha to the list.
Solo, duo, trio or with full band, he travels all points between West Texas and the West Coast.
Austin Ladd's latest project brings the great vocal talents of Patti Pannell to "Blowing Back to Me". The CD is getting airplay around the world and is available on iTunes (www.itunes.com/pattiandladd), Amazon, eMusic and all other internet stores.
