Austin George (SELENE/S10)
5/12/22

WHAT IT IS: Hailing from Dallas, 21-year-old singer/rapper/songwriter Austin George kicked off his music career in 10th grade when he got his hands on an FLStudio interface and started selling beats. Not long after graduating, he managed to get his demos in front of Ryan Tedder, soon thereafter dropping out of Texas Tech and moving to L.A. to pursue music full-time. After dropping his first two tracks, “bluebonnets” and “Hands on You,” George returned with his latest offering, “Freak Like That,” which racked up nearly 1m views in a week, contributing to his 30m+ global cross-platform streams in six months. You’ll be hearing more from this up-and-comer in 2022.
