Andrew Austin has been writing and performing music since the late 1970s. Soul Work is his project to bring recordings spanning almost thirty years of music to the public. There are four periods to be documented, however two of these happen on two other web sites. The first is Liquid Rainbow (1979-1982). While no worthy recordings from that period remain, several songs found here date from those years. The second period is Critical Mass (1983-1986). The third period is Numb Skull (1989-1993). Both of the periods are old school hard rock/heavy metal. These appear on different web pages. Finally, Andrew's solo work in the years since performing professionally (2004-present), which is more eclectic, reflecting Andrew's wide-ranging musical tastes. In the decade between Numb Skull and Andrew's return to writing and recording, he obtained a PhD and now teaches at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. He lives there with his wife and two children.
