With a bold sound influenced by the legends of Outlaw Country, Americana and Rock, Michael Austin has had impressive chart success in over 25 different countries with his debut CD “Neon Halo”.
Austin grew up in a small Missouri town (Cole Turkey Acres) and sang from a very young age. He even had his first paid gig at age 7, when a performer at a local establishment put the young singer up on stage promising to pay him if he sang well… well, Michael earned his first singing fee that day and has been impressing audiences ever since with his incredible songwriting skills and strong command of the stage.
The depths of his professional credits are as diverse as his talent, having served our country in the United States Air Force from the age of 18, to working everything from street patrol to high-security gang units for the San Bernardino, County Sheriff’s Department to studying opera and then appearing on Season 4 of NBC’s “The Voice” (chosen by “Team Adam”). Still passionately dedicated to our troops and their families, Michael performs often for the U.S. Armed Forces and he is frequently requested to sing his powerful version of the National Anthem at events and festivals. Always striving for the top level of musicianship from himself and his band, he gives his fans music and live shows they will not soon forget.
