    Austin Miller is a fantasy writer disguised as a rock musician. With focus on world building and clever lyrics, Austin’s sound is a distilled combination of Lorde’s clever and dramatic lyricism, combined with the guitar interplay and charisma of The Strokes, and given shape by the atmosphere of shoegaze legends My Bloody Valentine. The sonic world the music inhabits is the name of the game, and Austin’s focused efforts are made to give people a glimpse inside.

    Austin was primarily focused on musical theater throughout his adolescence. But, between playing prominent parts in numerous musicals in school, he was taking deep dives into Arctic Monkeys, John Mayer, Car Seat Headrest, Wallows, Snail Mail, and many, many others. After seeing family friend Mary Sarah get to the top 8 of The Voice season 10, Austin's mindset toward music changed, he wondered if he could make his own.

    He got an electric guitar in his sophomore year of high school, and quickly gained an affinity for the instrument. Is This It by The Strokes practically taught Austin how to play the guitar, and naturally it impacted his own style of playing; looping chord progressions and riffs and adding different supplemental parts to improvise makeshift melodies over; his individual, intuitive style of playing and writing lead to an obsession and thoughts of a career.

     Austin is currently attending Belmont University, gaining a commercial music degree as a vocalist. In his 4 years at Belmont, he has supported several groups as a guitar player and vocalist, and performed in many writers nights around Nashville on his own. Some specific examples include Austin's with Belmont's premier pop/rock ensemble PHNX and recording with recording artist Kalea Jordan. He is also studying with professional voice coach and music industry veteran James Wigginton. 

    Now, after 6 years of honing his songwriting skills and 100+ songs written, Austin is weeding out the bunch to record his debut EP “Behind on Life”. After assembling a band, he is heading to the studio to record the most personal body of work he has taken part in thus far in his career. Intensely ambitious with his compositions, combining guitars, synths, layered harmonies, and fierce drums, Austin’s music has a kinetic energy and an atmosphere that is unmatched by his peers.
