Originally born in Little Rock, Arkansas, Au$tin Miller has been staying in Texas for a while now. Over the years Au$tin has become a fan of all different kinds of music, ranging from artists like Lil Wayne and Eminem to artists like ZZ Top and Kid Rock. The rapper’s surroundings have always helped to influence him and his music. Afterall, he’s still a country boy at heart and he enjoys all of the simple little things in life. He could always get together with his friends and make a party out of nothing. And it’s that simple notion that you can make something out of nothing that is Au$tin’s biggest influence. Both in his personal life and when it comes to being a musician.
Growing up, the rapper always knew that he had a true love and passion for music. Au$tin even learned how to play a few instruments during his school days. For example, he learned the piano in elementary and the snare in his school’s marching band. But Au$tin didn’t start actually creating his own music till he was already out of school and an adult. He was about 19 years old and going through a break up with a girl he was dating at the time. While he was pacing around the living room he decided he wanted to start pursuing a career in music. So he packed up all of his things and spent the night sitting in his car writing the first songs he ever wrote.
Since starting out on his musical journey, Au$tin has already learned quite a bit about what it takes to be a musician. He’s also learning what it takes to become a successful one as well. Au$tin’s realized that there isn’t just one right way to make it as a successful musician. He’s learning that there is a whole process when it comes to creating music. And no two artists are going to take the same exact journey during their own careers. He also knows you need to save money because handling your music career the right way isn’t cheap.
While Au$tin isn’t worried about being one of the most popular artists, he does want to inspire people and touch lives. So he’s striving to reach the top of the Billboard Charts with his music. If a kid from Little Rock can make it, then anyone can achieve their dreams. And that’s the kind of inspiration he wants people to take away from his music. Au$tin’s been working hard and taking the time to perfect his craft. Like most of the good artists out there, the rapper has been learning how to do it all for himself. He learned how to write in cadences to his own individual flow. And he’s also taken the time to learn how to produce and engineer his own music.
Learning how to do everything on your own takes time, but it gave Au$tin the ability to truly create his own sound. He’s accomplishing everything on his own as an independent artist without any handouts. The rapper has created his own label, his own brand, and his own line of merch. And he’s managed to get everything done in house without the support of a major label or an investor.
Au$tin is currently spending a lot of time in the studio working on his next album. We’re still waiting on the official release date of the project, but we do know it’s going to be titled The Fine Line. He’s already got a few singles lined up that he’s also filmed the music video for. So he’s just working on some finishing touches for the album to complete the listening experience. In the meantime, fans can look forward to Au$tin dropping a new single with its accompanying visual. It’s expected to be released at the end of this month on the 27th.
