Austin Gilliam / Press

“Austin’s a swtichblade. He’ll cut you to your soul.”

Bassist, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Cody Canada and The Departed - JEREMY PLATO ON AUSTIN GILLIAM

“Austin is as passionate about playing music as a sawmill blade is about fresh timber. He’s also a gentleman to be around on and off the road. ”

Matt King and the Cutters - MATT KING ON AUSTIN GILLIAM

“Austin Gilliam looks as if he is about to kick your face in at any moment. He won’t, of course. But his music will. His music won’t think twice about kicking you in the face. Austin, on the other hand gives really good hugs, so don’t worry about him, but consider yourself warned about his tunes. ”

Drew Kennedy and the Golden Wing of Victory - DREW KENNEDY ON AUSTIN GILLIAM

“Austin Gilliam’s musical heart cannot be contained in the frame the Lord gave him. Austin gives you every ounce of ability he has, blowing your mind every time.”

Grammy-award-winning engineer, producer - ADAM ODOR ON AUSTIN GILLIAM

“Fans recognize Gilliam with his stage presence. His six-foot-five vikingesque stature commands attention. Gilliam recalled that he became interested in playing the guitar when he was nine years old. “I found an old guitar in my closet and took it from there,” he said. “Music runs on both sides of my family,” Gilliam said. His grandparents and other family members were musicians. Gilliam began playing in bands in and around Kingsville since he was 15 years old. Most recently, Austin has been active in the studio, both as a musician and vocalist, but also a producer. His production debut (Keith Davis, Jason Marbach, “Eclipse”) was released October 2010 and he is in the final stages of his second album as a producer (Mark Jungers, Jeremy Halliburton, “Whiskey & Lies”).”

“Guitarist Austin Gilliam is a heckuva player.”

Red Dirt Report - AUSTIN IN THE RED DIRT REPORT

“I’ve seen Scott Wiggins Band live several times and always thought the most compelling thing about the show was the energetic lead guitar of Austin Gilliam. And there’s something inside me that wants Gilliam, who provides superb background vocals, to step up to the front mic.”

Texas Music Times - AUSTIN IN TEXAS MUSIC TIMES

“If you haven’t heard (Austin) Gilliam’s band (The Politicians) ... It's easily one of the best shows around. That Gilliam boy can bring it.”

San Marcos Local News - AUSTIN IN THE SAN MARCOS LOCAL NEWS

“It’s six-feet, five-inches of bullshit-free, rocked-out guitar fervor from local hero Gilliam, the tattooed Viking of roughneck Americana. His band, the Politicians, ain’t too shabby neither.”
