Ohio Balladeer & Story Writer: Austin Stambaugh, is enriched with an authenticity that is magnetically keen. A modern pioneer of folk storytelling, his work has been called “Timeless and nuanced,” by Lilly Hiatt who wrote, “enjoy with the lights low.” Folk singer Tim Easton wrote, “Austin Stambaugh is the best flatpicking songwriter you’ve never heard of, and I’ll stand on Steve Earle’s coffee table in my Redwing boots and say it.” 

     Stambaugh’s aesthetic is derived from his fascination with plain-spoken speech, timeless standards, and terrifying compositions that hold a listener in suspense. His artistry is displayed in his highly acclaimed studio album Midwest Supernatural (2023). Co-produced by Benjamin Tod of Lost Dog Street Band, the record resonates with critics and fans alike and led to collaborations with seminal modern folk archive Western AF, as well as supporting Benjamin Tod & Lost Dog Street Band on tour.

The following spring of '24, Austin released electric visions of live recordings with his band The Electric Weepers. Elusive and shadowy, heavy and aloof, their debut document Way Down Here On Earth (2024) is released to East Nashville’s independent punk label Anti-Corp Records, and is the premier model of the obscure country music sound that stems from the northeast Ohio region. 

     Originally from northeast Ohio, he is now located in Nashville, TN, where he is busy writing and recording. When not fronting his band The Electric Weepers he performs solo for audiences both regionally and internationally with a Martin D-35 uniquely his own.
