Austin Allsup

 Fort Worth, Texas, USA
BandAlternativeSinger/Songwriter

From the outskirts of Fort Worth, where the high plains meets the hill country, amusical dust storm 51 years in the making has stirred.

When a coin flip, a plane crash, and a winter rock tour gone ary are what seperates you from life and death, you tend to take music a little more seriously.

Biography

26 year old Austin Allsup is a sight to behold. With shoulder-length golden locks, skinny, boot-cut jeans and tattered rock n roll t-shirts, he fits more into a punk dive in New York City than a honkytonk in Texas. But, with a grin he points out his friends are "all honkytonkers", and he well.... "aspires to honkytonk".

His music, like his past, is a culmination of all things Texas. A nod to Buddy Holly here, a little Waylon Jennings there, and a little Bob Wills in between. These influences have helped craft Austin into a performer who knows no boundaries, much to the chagrin of his father, someone who broke a few in his day touring and producing records with all three music icons.

With his dad on tour with Waylon and Buddy in 1959, a young rising star from California, Richie Valens replaced Austin's dad on an airplane after a coin flip, and Austin has a different take on life than your average garage band musician.

"Music has been in my blood since birth. I didn't know how or why until I hit my teens, but from the begining, I felt drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.
