Retrophonic Folk-A-Delic

“Retrophonic Folk-A-Delic” taps Austin’s diverse artistic background, musically of course, but also visually, as the cover art is a painting titled “Vivid Introspection” that Austin (also known as Vernon Mars for painting and pen and ink work) did in his college days.

In this collection, Austin runs the gamut from lighthearted rock-a-billy tunes, to soul chilling dramatic commentary (“Tom Joad Road”), to a fanciful talking blues extrapolating the fact he was called “Ice Cream” back in the day.

In this offering, the listener is treated to a heaping helping of invigorating vintage, yet current Churchman!   It’ll go by in a flash at a well paced 28:43.   Enjoy!
