BIO: Austin is a full-time singer/songwriter/guitar player. Although he is currently living in LA's San Fernando Valley, he keeps in touch with his southern roots: he plays in several singer/songwriter nights around LA, and is a part of the city's burgeoning country scene. Although he spends most of his time making a living playing guitar, he has also done some work on soap operas. He collects autographs of country stars, concentrating on "old school" stars like Buck, Merle, Waylon, and George.
PERSONAL STATEMENT: "I like to think that I'm the last of a free breed, one of the last of the full-grown men. And when I decided that what I do IS your daddy's country-rock, I promised to share it with all civilians - that includes you new recruits that tune in to Nashville Star. '3 chords and a cloud of dust' best describes my live shows - or,'3 chords, no waiting, I can take y'all over here.' Give me a 1,2,3,4, and I'll see ya at the encore baby..."
