In 2007 Austin Kolb began a small solo project, writing singer/songwriter music, playing in coffee shops and small venues around Columbia, Missouri. After a few years of that, The Austin Kolb Band was born. In 2010, starting with Austin Kolb (Lead Singer/Guitar), Alex "Soft Serve" Upton (Lead Guitar), and Josh JB Burleson (Drums), they began practice jams and immediately the sound clicked. To fill up the band's sound, they added Walter Beeson (Bass), Cameron Hays (Keys), and Brandon Phillips (Percussion). The Austin Kolb Band has recorded two full studio albums (The Simple Things 2010 and Life's Lemons 2011) at Centro Cellar Studio in Columbia, MO produced by Will Reeves. ? The band has played shows all over the midwest including major reggae artists Trevor Hall, Cas Haley, Wallpaper, The Dirty Heads and The Original Wailers. The band believes that positive music can make an impact on the world.?? One Love.
