Terrific track culled from latest album.

Austin Shaw left music behind after he finished college and started his climb up the corporate ladder, after a few years he ‘felt’ like something was missing so he left his job in corporate America and moved to Santa Cruz to reclaim the artist and songwriter that always lived inside of him.
Today we premiere a video for the title track from his album FELT as part of his ongoing live video series. Check it out here:
Shaw spent the last couple of years, writing, recording and touring and he recently released his full-length debut album. The songs are personal, and Shaw willingly exposes himself with his words and music. FELT is it a solid mix of classic and melodic rock, highlighted with charming guitar riffs and soulful vocals.
He navigates the complexities of day-to-day life through song. Inviting, approachable and thoughtfully efficient, the album walks in the quaint space between a stripped-down solo and full band approach. Shaw is a versatile arranger, and he flexes his musical instincts to great effect on his debut record. FELT was produced by Robert Smith (Defy Records), and also features the talents of guitarist Larry Saltzman (Paul Simon), drummer Joe Bonaci (Sting), bassist Malcolm Gold and vocalist Clara Lofaro.
