Austin Park is a Modern Pop Country Rock band from Jacksonville, FL, formed by singer/ songwriter Jeff Congo and drummer Tim Crawford. Whether performing at festivals, clubs or corporate events, or as direct support for a major act, the audience can expect a high energy, interactive experience they are sure to engage in, and build lasting memories!
Since forming in 2005, the band has performed over 1,000 shows, performing in venues like Tootsies Word Famous Orchid Lounge in Nashville, TN, The Jacksonville Landing in Jacksonville, FL, and GTMO - Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and has provided direct support for a list of national recording artists.
After signing with Grey Area Management in 2013, a mid-summer trip performing a showcase at the World Famous, Tootsies Orchid Lounge in Nashville, TN proved a worthwhile trip. Shortly after, the band signed with ZOD Lounge Productions and began working with many well-known Nashville songwriters such as Scott Fairclough (Lifehouse), Jeffrey East (Dierks Bentley), Kevin Terry (Martina McBride), and Eliot Sloan (Blessed Union of Souls), on their debut CD. Their lead-off song titled, “Life in Dixie” (Congo, Faircloth), gained major radio airplay on Georgia’s Z94.5 FM. Their follow up single, “12 Ticks to Midnight,” can also be heard spinning on Jacksonville’s 99.1 FM WQIK.
The band has since been spending their time between Jacksonville and Nashville writing and recording songs for their full length album release, due out in August 2016.
