Hailing from Newcastle NSW, Austin Mackay is one of the fastest rising Singer/Songwriters on the scene, emerging nationally at a rapid pace. From supporting a bunch of established, Australian acts including: Boo Seeka, The Dreggs and Kim Churchill, to selling out headline shows across the country, Austin has well and truly made his mark in one of the country’s most thriving music scenes.
At only 19 years of age, Austin has gained years of experience as both a writer and a performer, leading him to create his own fusion of Indie/Folk/Rock music. Made up of energetic guitar riffs and roaring vocal melodies, Austin’s distinct sound is significantly influenced by the likes of James Bay and John Mayer. Gaining over 250,000 Spotify streams in just his first year releasing music, it’s clear that Austin’s songs have a tendency to leave his listeners wanting more, and more is exactly what he is about to give them.
Coming out of the gate firing in 2021, Austin released his debut Australian Tour. The ‘Without You Tour’ saw Austin sell out shows throughout QLD, NSW, VIC & SA, and play to rooms filled with singing and smiling crowds. Austin’s raw and energetic presence, along with his storytelling ability, create a dynamic throughout his live show which is unmatched and unlike any other. From start to finish, Austin will grasp your full attention and take you on a journey throughout the highs and lows of both his life and past experiences.
