Austin Loman Group
The budding ‘Austin Loman Group’ serves as Austin’s debut as a bandleader. However, the 21-year-old guitarist is no stranger to the local music community. He spent two years playing in ambient rock band ‘Body Thief’ and recording on their debut LP. Even as a teenager, Loman was an active performer, sharing the stage with progressive rock heroes ‘Animals as Leaders’.

In order to convey the genre bending and otherwise demanding nature of his music, Austin has sought out some of the area’s finest sidemen, all with diverse musical backgrounds and mastery of their unique style.
The quartet hopes to perform and bring something new to the scene that can be enjoyed by fans of jazz, progressive, indie, metal, and anything in between.
