Austin Tyler Jones

  • Ted's Sporting Goods 806 South Main Street Columbia, TN, 38401 United States (map)

Austin Tyler Jones is a soul man who sharpened his musical chops in Columbia…Tennessee.  Not your typical small town, Columbia has become a refuge for artists trying to escape Nashville's hypnotic pull to conform to the latest "thing”.  Well, standing front in center of this small town that bustles with talent is Austin Tyler Jones.  A family man, a working man and a ridiculously talented man.  Plainly, he is a white middle class husband and father who conjures up the soulful ghosts of the greats.  He stands on the shoulders of rocks pillars and in the tradition of his hero’s like James Taylor,  Austin does not write or sing because he wants to…but because he has to.  
 
The most compelling thing about this artist is that he sings with a limp.  He’s been knocked TO THE GROUND for singing the truth only to get back up and sing louder.  His latest bout with “fame” came as he sang to the backs of the judges on the hit TV show THE VOICE….he never did see their faces.  His hard hitting vocals and a spectacular range could have knocked them out of their chairs…but he chose to do something else.  He sang from the heart.  What those judges failed to see but the world will not is that when one man sings the truth…the rest of us see ourselves.
