Stickin' Good Stuff in Your Ears!

Austin Ladd and Patti call the high lonesome of New Mexico 'home' but never forget the 'sixth-generation Texan Heritage' Austin Ladd writes about in song and story. Austin Ladd's voice is described as 'Lyle Lovett meets Gordon Lightfoot' while Patti adds her bluesy, west coast rock sound for moving solos and tight harmonies. Not quite folk, not quite country - defined by fingerstyle acoustic guitar playing that rests nicely between James Taylor and Chet Atkins.

Western heritage, culture and values are uniquely featured in Austin Ladd's award-winning prose and spoken word performances. Not only are the stories of fictionalized history 'real,' but they are brought to life through sound effects and original music that accompany the stories. Think of them as a 'one man musical' - appropriate for all ages. 
About the Music
"...with well-written lyrics, impressive finger-picking, vocals that bowl you over and an intense delivery of emotion... a force to be reckoned with and an act not to be missed" - Bob Leggett, Music Connection Magazine

" ...Patti has a beautiful voice with gears that range from soft purr to Joplin-like bursts.  Roberts has a Texas-folk style and is a fingerstyle guitar player to boot..." - Sam Kendrick, San Antonio's Action Magazine
