Austin Lucas

Some days I just sit back and think about how lucky I am to have had the talent of Jason Molina and his songs in my lifetime.

Here's a cover that I recently recorded of Songs: Ohia - Riding With The Ghost.

Love it! Sounds great! When I was standing in line to buy some essentials for my new place some dude saw my Austin Lucas patch. He was like "Hey I like Austin Lucas, I saw him play at the Urban Lounge". It was pretty cool!

Thank you for this! You are a true working class hero, one for whom I've followed for years now. I am so very thankful for you doing what you do! Keep it going brother!

Well, instead of having a great evening with my buddies I'm all alone drinking by the fire and listening to your tunes. Could be worse 😉

What a treat! I'm new to hearing this Genius, wow how did I ever miss him! Thank you for letting me join this group! ... \m/

Besides my cat missing on my Bday this Wednesday...still alive and have a job and teleworking!!! Miss you!!!

I never realised how good your voice is, this is awesome!

Please put Splinters on the vinyl 🙏🏻🖤

Sounding great Austin. Hope you are doing ok buddy

Any chance you can play something from the bristle ridge album

Sorry - just been ordering the vinyl :)

Corinna, make sure he is not too embarrassed to play the song about YOU!

Hi Lesley, Somehow I missed wishing you Happy Birthday. Happy Birthday, darling.

This one better make it onto the album!

Would love to hear Call the Doctor!

Remember hearing this song many years ago in Plymouth loved it then and still do

Darryl—I asked him to do a Lucero cover. We’ll see!

How about Dead Factories

Stay safe and healthy Austin

Your tacos are waiting in Chicago...they are getting cold.

The last time I made an album with just my acoustic guitar, I used a new passport photo for the cover. It seems fitting that I'd do it again this time. Tune in to view the recording of the album, here tomorrow on facebook and hit up the preorder link in the comments below. 100% of proceeds for digital preorders go towards mutual aid organizations in Nashville, TN. AND Bloomington, IN. Including @shalomcommunitycenter

Looking forward to this!

I need some serious help deciding what I should play and potentially record this coming friday. I have two new songs and a a couple of covers picked out for the album but I still haven't made a firm setlist for the rest of the record/event. Speak now or forever hold your piece.

I totally messed up and should have asked for you to play some Kenny Rogers in light of his passing..

- Society (Eddie Vedder) - I won‘t back down (Tom Petty) - Reason to believe (Springsteen) - Call the Doctor - Darkness out of Me - Sun or Snow 🖖🏻

I'd love to hear you cover Rain King by Counting Crows! Also, My Mother & the Devil

Your cover of "He stopped loving her today" made me cry. If it's not on an album of yours, it sure should be.

My cats and I request "Somebody Loves You" (minus the dogs 😜) *My cats are big fans*. . .or that amazing version of 'He Stopped Loving Her Today'❤️

Hit and miss- HWM. would be an amazing cover. If you dont want to cover. Shoulder equally awsome.

Splinters, Kristie Rae, Alone in Memphis, Sun or snow, Shoulders, So much more then lonely...

Definitely "Riding With The Ghost..." Or, your amazing version of "He Stopped Loving Her Today.."

1. Sun or Snow 2. Bloody Shells 3. The Light 4. the rest of your discography. Cheers brother!

Rose in paradise, mental revenge just something waylon would be awesome!! Also always amazing to hear you sing Kith and kin!

1 four wheels 2 corinna song 3 immortal americans 4 sun or snow 5. Splinters 6. Killing time 7. A weakerthans cover 8. Alone in memphis 9 shallow inland sea 10 shipwrecked

Wellllll being I was listening to some old school Austin in the car today. I formally request one of the following: Darlin’ Hollywood, or Glass Bottom Boats

you know how I feel about "so much more than lonely"

You: So much more than lonely Cover: Gospel of Mary (Josh Ritter) - The Artist in the Ambulance (Thrice)

Some favorites off the top of my head are Man Alive, and Goat and Goose. I dig all your stuff though man.

do one for mom and one for dad.

Sun or snow - always! One of my favourite songs of all time!

Thin Lizzy. Things ain’t working out down at the farm.

If there's no Bon Jovi on it, you're doing this wrong.

How many songs, Austin?

Monroe County Nights. Because that one should be on every record.

A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall - Bob Dylan

Yes indeed! Ever had a crack at racing in the streets by the boss? I reckon you’d hit it outta the park

Just cover the entire "No Division" record from Hot Water Music.

Immortal Americans ♥️ Alone in Memphis

As we’re all sitting around in various stages of social isolation or even quarantine, I have thought long and hard about how to both continue working, and how to reach out to embattled and marginalized communities. After much thought, I’ve decided not to let this pandemic stop me from working, nor allow my being stranded in Germany serve to disconnect me from the communities that I hold dear in the United States. While many artists have been doing live streams, I’ve decided to try doing something a little different. I’m going to be entering the studio - in order to record an acoustic album of new songs, covers and classics.

This coming Friday, I’d like to invite you all to join me for what may be a one of a kind streaming event. While the stream itself will be free to all, tips will be graciously appreciated. I’ll also be offering a presale of LP/CD and digital download. All proceeds from digital downloads will be donated to grassroots Mutual Aid and Harm Reduction organizations, thereby lending my solidarity and some monetary support to my hometown of Bloomington, IN. and the doubly devastated and still recovering community, of Nashville, TN. So please, follow the preorder link in the comments and join me on Facebook this coming Friday at 9pm CET, 8pm GMT, 4pm EDT and 1pm PST.

"Crazier than Gary Busey: An Evening with Austin Lucas"

That, or you can star in Jack Nicholson's autobiographical movie.

naah, you look like the lead in a Jim Jarmusch film I have been waiting to see for nigh on fotty yearn

I freaking love this shot.

I was in Cali last week.

Glasgow, Scotland. Not a huge monument, far away or anything like that but a milestone after a week and a few days and the pinnacle of my first major hitchhiking trip through the UK and Scotland from my home town of Breda, The Netherlands with my girlfriend Charlie. The moment we stood on top of the Necropolis and heard pipes playing in the background still gives me chills to this day.

Ringkirche, Wiesbaden...so many great shows there! 😍

My heart stays on Maui

Dublin N.I.🙋‍♀️

Moonstone beach CA

Lake Michigan

Home. Scottish highlands.

Moab UT

I barely leave Raleigh now😭

A trip through Wyoming a few years back where we stopped in Lander to see Lucero and they dragged our son on stage to sing Tears Don't Matter much with them.

My sister & I were lucky enough to see sunrise at Mesa Arch last August. Happy St. Patrick's Day from Ireland ☘️❤️

The Hi-fi in Indy a few weeks back. This was the Jason Boland and the Stragglers show.

Dahn in Rheinland-Pfalz. Lovely chilled area with great people.

Not too long ago. ;) We're glad the whole trip including the Nijmegen show worked out. ❤

Beautiful Tasmania!

Memphis. But not alone. Love from Germany.

Joshua Tree, CA

Tybee Island, GA

I love being stuck at home, for the most part. Home is where my pups and comfy pants are.

A bit obvious perhaps, but my favourite place on earth. My heart goes out to the people that live there at the moment.

Sintra, Portugal... my second home

Rwanda!

Made it to the North Shore of MN last weekend. Selfie’s are hard in the snow and ice lol

Had to cancel some shows in California but my elder punk sex appeal has never burned brighter! Y’all stay sane and healthy out there and stay tuned for a series of web concert benefits that I’ll be holding. We’re all in this together.
