The Jacob Austin Band is truly a family band (although small) consisting of David, Liz, and Jacob Austin.
Jacob, although the youngest member, is the namesake of the group as music has been his passion since a very early age.
It is a passion that simmered for many years until Jacob became active in a local performing arts group and found his love of singing at the ripe old age of ten.
The group has been performing together since 2005 and has done many, many shows in all sorts of venues ranging from churches to livestock shows.
The group plays a wide variety of music: traditional gospel, traditional country, oldies, Americana, show tunes, and original material.
Jacob plays mandolin, mountain dulcimer and sings leads, David plays 12 string rhythm guitar and sings harmonies and back up vocals, and Liz plays the autoharp.
