Austin Rock/Soul Artist Scott Strickland

Relocating to Austin in 2013, forming the SCOTT STRICKLAND BAND and releasing two critically acclaimed EPs Fly to the Sun: The Eastern Sun Sessions (2015), and Try This Love (2016), both undoubtedly had comparisons to contemporaries Seal, or Dave Matthews - but trust that if you could sing this way, you would sing this way. Despite his aesthetic, when Stricklands idiosyncrasies shine through the music, its so easily absorbed that one may overlook its sophistication, to that reminiscent of Ritchie Havens, Bill Withers, David Crosby or Joni Mitchell (albeit with a thoroughly modern sound).
Music was a sideline for Strickland, with a graduate degree in filmmaking. When he relocated to Austin, his part time music passion transformed to a full time creative endeavor. He released his first self-titled LP in 2022. Testament to his love of film making, his video accompanying the first track L.A. says music journalist Peter Blackstock for Austin 360, . . . might be the best video, and song, to come out of Austin in the first half of 2022.

Strickland will be presenting an acoustic/electric solo set at KALA, and supporting his tour is Austin singer-songwriter NATALIE PRICE. Texas Music Magazine describes Natalie Price as one of Austins most dynamic new signer-songwriters, just as comfortable dabbling in Americana or folk as she is indie-pop. You can download her 2019 EP Through The Fog, and catch her latest arrangement, The Island on NPRS music blog, where she sings this beautiful new tune, accompanied only by her African thumb piano.
Doors open at 7pm. Full Bar. Online tickets are held at the door. 1017 Marine Drive in Astoria. Questions: 503.338.4878.
