Austin Barrett
Austin Barrett’s musical career began when he was 6 years old at his elementary show-and-tell. After growing up with influences such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, AC/DC, Cream, B.B. King, and Crosby Stills and Nash, Barrett discovered Bluegrass and Folk Music, and the rich history of his home in Bristol, Tennessee. Barrett went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a Minor in Bluegrass, Old Time and Country Music, while also leading the well-known local band, The Rickshaw Roadshow, who toured the southeast and released an EP and 2 full-length Albums from 2012 to 21015.

His latest outfit, The Green Fingers, is a four-piece, all-original band which Barrett deems, “Americana Soul Music”. Those who listen can largely expect excellent guitar playing under a raspy soulful vocal melody, and all-original music.

“the band’s indelible trademark is Barrett’s vocal, a smooth and memorable white-soul croon that calls to mind other distinctive frontmen of the genre, without expressly imitating them”
