“Ride Away”

"Like a reincarnated Bob Seger track from the Eighties, "Ride Away" looks to heartland rock & roll for its cues. It's big, booming and a bit wild-sounding – a soundtrack for pool halls, roadhouses and open highways... When he climbs into his upper register during each chorus, the effect is Stapleton-sized." -RS Country

About

Sounds Like: A gnarly, but vulnerable, country-blues singer with the introspective songwriting chops Nashville thankfully continues to reward.
— Rolling Stone
 

Origins

Austin Jenckes was born and raised outside of Seattle in the small town of Duvall, Washington. 

He relocated to Nashville, Tennessee in January of 2012 and now calls Nashville home with his wife, Brittany, and their one year old daughter, Ravenna, where they live on a quiet two acres of land on the outskirts of town. 
 

 

The Music

To hear Austin sing could be equated to being taken to church due to his songs being laced with dynamic soaring melodies, introspective life-lived lyrics. Stylistically his music makes you long for a simpler time when the world moved a little slower and things felt a bit more pure. 

Austin is a man made for the stage. Whether he’s sitting on a bar stool in the Georgia Theatre in Athens, Georgia performing for 1,000 people by himself or back in the Northwest playing with a full band. His shows are captivating, inspiring and leave those that know him feeling like they are witnessing one of the true under-the-radar talents. And those that are hearing him for the first time are struck by the thought of “who the hell is this guy”? 

His single “Same Beer Different Day” released in August 2017 reached 1 million streams on Spotify & Rolling Stone Country named him one of their “10 Artists You Need To Know” in January 2018 saying “he sounds like a gnarly, but vulnerable, country-blues singer with the introspective songwriting chops Nashville thankfully continues to reward. 

Austin’s next single “Ride Away” is set to come out on March 9th, 2018.

You can hear that and more live at one of Austin’s shows thanks to his plans for extensive touring in 2018.
