Premiere: Austin Meade – “Growing Pains”

Austin Meade is a young cat that we’ve been excited about for a quite a while. A millennial with a 70’s soul, Meade’s songwriting skills are beyond his years. His guitar prowess adds some vintage rock ‘n’ roll edge that contrasts his smooth melodies that are easy on the ears. We’ve featured Meade on 20 Questions and he’s played River Jam several years running, including last year’s Saturday night full band performance at the River Road Ice House.
