Alt-pop country artist AUSTIN (Austin Gee) is forging his own path within the country genre with music as authentic as he is. Born in Hopkinsville, Kentucky and a graduate of Murray State University, Austin found early inspiration in the radio leading to involvement in church choir and theater throughout school. Moving to Nashville in 2017, he quickly gained success as half of the duo SixForty1 — opening for the likes of Brantley Gilbert, Eli Young Band, Michael Ray, Walker Hayes, Muscadine Bloodline, and garnering millions of streams. AUSTIN is anticipating the release of his debut solo project produced by Matt Geroux. Introducing his unique alt-punk, country-synth sound that nods to influences like Machine Gun Kelly, Rascal Flatts and HARDY, the project gives listeners a deeper look into who he is. He’s managed by Morris Higham.
