Grayson County Burn Ban is a Denver-based group fronted by Texas-native, Austen Grafa. While Austen grew up surrounded by the songwriting of Guy Clark, Jerry Jeff Walker, Terry Allen, and Robert Earl Keen, he would cruise around old dirt roads listening to Bright Eyes, Radiohead, and Third Eye Blind. It was not until ten years later, living in Colorado, writing songs of his own, did he realize how much of an unintended influence those "country" artists had on his writing style. Then one summer day in 2014, as two Denver bands toured across the Southwest, a conversation was started about a new group; a group that was country...kind of, and rock-n-roll...kind of. Using the lyric-driven songs that Austen had been working on with all the other skills and interests that each band member had to offer, Grayson County Burn Ban was formed. Three years later, their sound expands with the debut full length "Better Neighbor"; a 12 song smorgasbord of introspective lyrics and grab-a-buddy sing-a-longs. While each song compliments the next, their genre may be hard to categorize; but don't fret, because they've done it for you - Grayson County Burn Ban plays "campfire country rock" and they will be coming to a city near you.
