The Staylyns / Press

“Johnny Austin is talking about music when he tells me that “sweat should be dripping on to your guitar” but he might as well be talking about the city whose name he took... He tells me this while standing beside a statue of the late bluesman Stevie Ray Vaughan, who died in a helicopter crash in 1990. While other cities build tributes to politicians and statesmen, Austin gives centre stage to a guitarist most of the world doesn’t even know. I suddenly understand why: it’s not about popularity; the point is that the boy could play. Yet this town’s not really about musicians, Johnny says, “what makes Austin great is the fans”.”

“The Staylyns were included in the Texas Music Magazine's Winter 2014 Texas music sampler!”

“There were plenty of other musical favorites at 10/20, including the Staylyns (from Austin) who attracted a sizable gathering of spectators (and lingering runners) at their stage.”

“The Staylyns entertained the Main Street crowd with a superb mix of cover tunes and originals.”

“The Staylyns are proud to endorse Amy E. Mitchell, Austin attorney protecting creative professionals' interests since 2004.”

“Johnny & Suzy have just been endorsed by Custom Printed Guitar Picks and accessories by Clayton, Inc.”

"[Sex and Coffee] is layered with some undeniably blues and Americana-influenced tones. ... The lyrics have a playful air to them, while still coming across as authentic." Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)

“The Staylyns bring their veteran Sixth Street sound to kick off Clusterfest. Great harmonies and a great choice of covers is probably what defines The Staylyns sound that has been a staple of the Live Music Capital scene. No stranger to the 626 as well, the trio has already performed their blending harmonies and power solos at Southwestern’s Cove Concert Series.”
