Santa Cruz, CA, based singer-songwriter Austin Shaw spent the spring on a national sold-out tour with David Bromberg followed by a handful of July dates with dada and in-between he wrapped up recording on his debut full-length album FELT, due out on September 15. Today Cryptic Rock premieres his new video for the song “Without You.”
“We had fun filming the video all around my hometown of Santa Cruz CA. Playing the role of my X in the video, I was lucky enough to be joined by family friend and actress Alix Angelis (Magnificent 7, Bones.) Innocent Words Magazine explained it best in their album review, the song “Without You” tells the story of a break-up and what we all tell ourselves to get over a broken heart.” – explains Austin
Earlier this year Shaw released an EP comprised of selections from his forthcoming album Felt. Both the EP and new album are produced by Robert L. Smith (Defy Recordings,) and feature the talents of guitarist Larry Saltzman (Paul Simon,) drummer Joe Bonadio (Sting,) bassist Malcolm Gold and vocalist Clara Lofaro.
