The Sound of Austin |

An unprecedented collection from Mathew Sturtevant's singular vision:
100 intimate portraits and interviews of the musicians who define
The Sound of Austin

Including Bob Schneider, Alejandro Escovedo, Kat Edmonson, Shawn Colvin, Lyle Lovett, Billy Gibbons, Robert Earl Keen and Willie Nelson, these portraits offer a glimpse into the personalities that make Austin a place like nowhere else on earth.

The Sound of Austin is a collection, a testament, a love note and a guidebook, honoring and preserving the musicians who have played, will play and are playing here in Austin, Texas.

A portion of the proceeds from The Sound of Austin will benefit the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM). HAAM provides access to affordable health care of Austin’s low income, uninsured, working musicians with a focus on prevention and wellness.

“Austin’s sphere of influence has gone from statewide to global.” –Joe Nick Patoski
