Austin Nevins hails from the woods of Mill Valley, California. Since getting his first guitar, Austin has learned to play a multitude of string-based instruments. They include the acoustic, electric, baritone, bass, lap steel, sitar guitar, mando guitar and a little bit of banjo (occasionally the trumpet emits from his home and the neighbors rejoice).
Venturing east to attend and graduate from Berklee College of Music, he had the fortunate opportunity to study with and befriend some great musicians.
Now immersed in the New England music community, Austin can be heard playing live and or on record as well as producing music with a host of talented people: Josh Ritter, Rose Polenzani, Rose Cousins, Aoife O'Donovan, Dietrich Strause, Anais Mitchell, Meg Hutchinson, Brian Webb, Antje Duvekot, Kristin Cifelli, Jason Myles Goss, Chris O'Brien, Jennie Stearns, Boris McCutcheon, Alastair Moock, Jess Klein, Rachael Davis, Julie Rosenthal, Porterdavis, Nate Borofsky, Mark McKay, Steve Mayone, Dennis Brennan, the Armadillos, the AFS Jazz Trio, Meg Toohey, Deb Talan, etc... Austin's textural playing has also found its way onto the soundtracks for a few independent films.
Austin has been producing music, making some beautiful records. Recording a lot from his home studio in Somerville. If you would like him to record on your album, or for production, feel free to get in touch with him.
Austin has taught guitar over the years and is occasionally taking on guitar students in the Boston area as well.
