Augustana will ‘Steal Your Heart’ 

Stay tuned to your local alternative FM station.

“Steal Your Heart” is going out to radio this week, and it marks the welcome return of Augustana, one of modern music’s most consistent young bands. Even though you might not place the name with the song at first. But group anchor Dan Layus has quietly composed some truly great folk-rock standards in his brief two-album career, like “Boston,” “Sweet And Low” and “Stars And Boulevards.”

Augustana’s third Epic album, self-titled, will follow on April 26.

Ever the dead-serious tunesmith, Layus has been honing his craft by playing occasional solo shows in L.A. But this time around, the guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist was shooting for a more organic feel on “Augustana.” So the band recruited Grammy-winning producer Jacquire King to oversee the project. And if ever there were an artist deserving of a major, chart-conquering coup, it’s this guy.

Check out the beautiful new “Steal Your Heart” ballad (plus full album tracklisting) at and see if you don’t wholeheartedly agree.
