All songs are entirely self-composed, self-produced and self-performed.
The Austin Taft Soundtrack has built a strong reputation for high-energy live performances, opening for such national acts as Days of the New, Powerman 5000, Tantric, Future Leaders of the World, (hed) p.e., and Caroline's Spine. The band also frequently headlines shows featuring up to three hours of non-stop original music. Many of the debut album’s tracks have become staples of the bands’ live performances including: “Nighttime Rainbow”, “Waterproof”, and “Polaroid”.
Since its inception, the band has performed in a variety of venues across Iowa including (but not limited to) Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Davenport, Northwood, Ames, Muscatine, Fairfield, Ottumwa, Marshalltown, Oskaloosa, Waterloo and Cedar Falls.
