Twitter Spotlight: Austin Hartley-Leonard

Update: Fresh Lemonade is available here.

My friend Elle turned me on to Broken Anchor. One listen and I was sold.

Broken Anchor is the brainchild of Austin Hartley-Leonard. Conveniently, there’s a sampler available free for download on the Broken Anchor web site. That should tide you over until Fresh Lemonade, the band’s first full-length release, is available in August. I pre-ordered here because I’m so hooked on what I have heard so far.

Austin kindly answered my probing questions before embarking on a summer tour.
