I am forever grateful my super-talented cohort Carly Evans turned me onto Austin Brown.
This dynamic fireball is the heir-apparent to the Jackson family throne. Son of Rebbie, the oldest member of the original family of musicians, he looks like a Jackson, sounds like a Jackson, albeit with a modern flare. (yes, he’s Michael Jackson’s nephew.)
Right now you can get a free download of his entire debut release “Highway 85” at his website and check out the track “Highway to the Sky” below.
He calls the new collection of songs a mixtape, but it’s pretty much an album any way you look at it.
I’m hosting a full band performance with Austin, Malaysian singer Yuna and LA buzz band The Record Company tonight at School Night, my weekly club night at Bardot in Hollywood. http://www.itsaschoolnight.com/
It should be a very special show, and it’s free as long as you RSVP to get yourself on the list before we fill up. See him now in this intimate setting, because (like Gary Clark Jr., Two Door Cinema Club, Michael Kiwanuka, and others we’ve had at School Night) we expect him to do very well.
