Scotty Austin isn’t your ordinary or average run-of-the-mill rock star. With a remarkable track record playing across the United States, as well as being a multi-instrumentalist in numerous genres, it is clear he has a unique perspective when it comes to creating music. Hailing from Parsons, Tennessee, his interest in various instruments started at a young age when he began reading music in kindergarten while also gaining experience in the family band at church. By the late 90s, Scotty began expanding on his knowledge of music genres and branching out to multiple styles such as percussion and classical guitar performance before earning his spot as the band leader of the official NASCAR Rolling Thunder band for an entire season. His accomplishments continued when around the early 2000s, he won fourth place in the world during the International Blues Contest while representing Memphis, Tennessee.
Shortly after, Scotty collaborated with a new original group and recording artist, Ash Bowers, along with Jason Aldean’s label, Broken Bow Records, as well as the sister label, Stoney Creek Records. It wasn’t long until Scotty decided to start his own original project, an indie rock band called Trash the Brand. He had wanted to record and play songs that he had written but never had the chance to play. Within weeks of forming, he was playing to packed houses and venues which in turn caught the attention of a few people in the music industry. Soon Scotty found himself in contact with Jeff Hanson (manager of Creed and Saving Abel), who offered to manage him. While negotiating, he asked Hanson to put him on the show with Saving Abel that was happening that weekend in Memphis. He was given the opening spot for the concert. A few days after the show, Scotty was asked to front Saving Abel in which he accepted and has since been with for over 8 years.
Scotty Austin has used his natural talent and ear for distinct sounds to produce expressive song lyrics and music throughout his career. His hard work and dedication has continued to be met with astounding results, even landing him on a #1 hit video game soundtrack with the band Supernova Syndicate for the smash hit game Dead Rising. He continued to hone his skills and perform multiple guitar session work with various producers and artists in Nashville, TN. This led to him becoming the band leader for Jonathan Singleton, one of Nashville’s biggest singer-songwriters, and also playing lead guitar in the group Full Devil Jacket on their second record. Established in 2004, Saving Abel has spearheaded the genre of rock and since 2013, Scotty has been fronting the multi-platinum and internationally renowned band. Together for almost a decade they have toured the United States and even abroad. Scotty Austin has used his artistry and extraordinary flair for songwriting to bring unparalleled entertainment to music fans everywhere. After the world persevered through a difficult year in 2020, Scotty is looking forward to getting back to what he does best and creating music that will have everyone anticipating what he accomplishes in the future.
Scotty, 2022, released a cover of Rebel Yell that charted #23 on the Billboard Indicator Charts and #13 on Foundations. In his first year out of Saving Abel he hit 35 states and over 100 shows. His single release Black Friday has hit 40,000 streams and 20,000 monthly listeners in just 2 weeks of releasing. We will be releasing it to radio after the new year with a big campaign push.
“I am very thankful that Saving Abel opened the door for me in 2013 to be a national frontman and take my musical career to the next level. For over 8 years I enjoyed fronting the stage singing multi platinum hits along with music I made with them during my reign. I signed a solo record deal in 2021 and parted ways with them. They opened the door and I haven't stopped since. I am very thankful for the life I live and happy to travel the world as a National Artist singing some of my Saving Abel songs along with my new music. Stay tuned…”
