About this project

After innumeral "Voice Memos" Demos, I have decided to take the plunge and get into the studio to record my debut EP. 

Your support would mean the world to me. Without you, there's no music. Over the past year, I have had more in my life to write about than ever before. I am finally ready to share this music with you all. 

The record will be 4-5 songs. We are currently in pre-production and are looking to get the bulk of the work done in July and August. These songs are personal accounts from my life in the past year. I hope you like them!

Any amount helps. You are all so wonderful, and I am so blessed to even have you reading this far into the blurb. Thank you all. 

always,

-Austin

"Austin W. Powell began writing songs in 2011, after a two-year block. 'Midnight Train' is the song that set the spark for his newfound success. This song started out as a story, which then turned into a song- this method was inspired by folk music Powell had been listening to.

Most of Powell’s songs are based on relationships in his own life ranging from family to love lost, to love found. Powell explained that he wants people to be able to relate to his songs. Lately, he has been writing about a new relationship and how the first feelings are the strongest. He also described it as, “the feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when you’re getting attached to someone and how scary it is.” He is quite the romantic."
