Austin Ladd and Patti - We're Stickin' Good Stuff in Your Ears!
Austin Ladd has played shows with many of the legends of what is now known as "Texas Country" - from Texas Outlaws such as Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker, Merle Haggard, Joe Ely and Leon Russell to Pure Prairie League, Kenny Loggins and The Byrds. His first recordings were with folk great Nanci Griffith in Austin, Texas.
Currently touring nationally as a duo, their music falls between "Texas Roots" and "Americana." Austin Ladd's voice has been described as "Lyle Lovett meets Gordon Lightfoot". Patti adds her bluesy, west coast rock sound for moving solos and tight harmonies. Not quite folk, not quite country - defined by fingerstyle acoustic guitar playing that rests nicely between James Taylor and Chet Atkins.
For those venues that like covers mixed in to please the audience, you will hear a repertoire ranging from classic Linda Ronstadt to Patsy Cline and from Lyle Lovett to Gordon Lightfoot.
Patti and Austin Ladd are about to begin the "Let's Go" Tour in June, 2015. With destinations ranging all over North America, a new Travels and Reflections Blog will soon be featured that all can follow. Stay tuned and sign up to join them in their Travels!
