Austin's musical career has been heavily influenced by Bill Black (Elvis’ upright bass man). Austin first discovered a love of stage performance in high school as a member of the Jets’ gang in West Side Story. Based in Phoenix, he plays upright bass for several local rockabilly bands, and is a traditional-style barber by day. Austin previously played the role of Jay Perkins at The Phoenix Theatre Company in 2018, followed by a six-month production on the Norwegian Getaway. He is thrilled to return to The Phoenix Theatre Company and hopes that the show will keep the audience rocking and rolling!
