Clothes Minded Folk
Assisted by award winning producer Michael Freeman, Austin Atteberry & Friends have developed a sound and style that is both uniquely their own while at the same time strangely traditional. Austin, a 24 year-old singer songwriter out of Chicago, has been playing the Chicago clubs and coffee houses for years and with his debut album, 'Clothes Minded Folk,' he incorporates some of the city's finest Blues and Bluegrass musicians alike. With being only weeks into it's initial release, 'Clothes Minded Folk' has already created a buzz the likes of which has been unseen in Chicago for many years. Their first single, 'Party Tonight,' is a proven college anthem, speaking to the lives and imaginations of college students everywhere. We ask that you please take a listen to 'Clothes Minded Folk' - and in so doing, Austin and his many fans sincerely believe that you will come to understand what so many already have - that this is the truly beginning of something very special. :: Austin Atteberry Bio:: 'To kiss the hand that holds the heart,' my Grandfather said. 'How is that the greatest thing in the whole wide world?' I replied, sitting on his lap. 'And how can someone even hold their heart anyway?' One Christmas Eve, my Grandpa Buck explained that the greatest thing in the whole wide world was not a thing at all. "How could that be?" I remember thinking. "What about Porsches and Ferraris and mansions and candy?" The reason my Grandfather chose this phrase to describe the beauty of compassion and the joy of giving, I will probably never know. But in all my life, nobody has ever told more truth. The greatest thing in the whole wide world is indeed to kiss the hand that holds the heart. And in so many words, this is why I do what I do. I have played music for the better part of my life, studying privately in classical voice, guitar and percussion. State and regional choirs, musical productions, percussion troupes and rock bands all fall into what would be called my musical experience. But my reason for playing is to write. For me, writing comes straight from those few words my Grandfather told me so many years ago. Thank you all so much for listening....
