Austin Meade is a singer/songwriter based out of College Station, Texas. In March of 2013 he branched out from behind the drums and started writing his own music. With classic influences as well as many modern Americana and Blues influences, you can find Austin's music somewhere in the middle.
Thanks to his metal- and classic-rock-loving dad, Meade got to see bands like Judas Priest and worshipped Whitesnake. In junior high, he related to the intense emo-rock of Paramore and Fall Out Boy, and the power of songwriters like John Mayer. Yet, thanks to plainspoken but deep heartland songwriters like Tom Petty, and cutting his teeth touring in Texas and Oklahoma Red Dirt scene, Meade’s music overflows with wide-open soulfulness.
He was a drummer for years, even teaching to pay the bills, but Meade found his true voice when he began playing guitar as a teen in his pastor father's church. Those experiences lend both gravitas and rebelliousness to Meade’s songs and self.
Now the frontman of his own band slinging guitar licks with expert precision, his music rolled out with two releases in 2014, his first EP “Long Ways To Go” followed by his first full-length album “Chief Of The Sinners.” His next EP “Heartbreak Coming” came in 2016 with a couple of singles to announce his commencement on the Texas Music Chart, followed by his second full-length album “Waves” in 2019. Inspired by the rock music that molded Meade’s adolescence comes his current singles that include 'Happier Alone,' 'Cave In,' 'Dopamine Drop' and 'Deja Vu' from the newly released record "Black Sheep.”
