ABOUT THIS BOOK
Austin is known worldwide for its vibrant music scene. Why? The magic is in the musicians who play, night in and night out, in small clubs like the Continental and at big festivals like South By Southwest. In Seduced by Sound: Austin, 100 of the city’s best artists reveal why making music is not a choice – it’s something they have to do.
They share what inspires them, who influences them and how they write songs. From well-known artists such as Alejandro Escovedo and Joe Lewis of Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears, to the rising stars on today’s best-bands lists like Sweet Spirit and the Ghost Wolves, the artists of Seduced by Sound: Austin showcase the diversity and talent in this city humming with creativity. The book also pays tribute to some of the Austin music scene’s most influential people, as musicians share stories about master singer-songwriters Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, guitar-slinger Stevie Ray Vaughan, and more.
Listen to the voices of these artists, and you’ll understand why Austin, Texas, is the Live Music Capital of the World.
Every copy of the book comes with more than 50 downloadable tracks from the artists, including Jesse Dayton, Walker Lukens, Elijah Ford, Lincoln Durham, Shinyribs and more.
