#CFF2022 Artists' Spotlight: Kaleb Austin
The thing about life is second chances exist, and Kaleb Austin couldn’t be more grateful to be experiencing his. Having previously struggled to make ends meet while trying to pursue a career in country music as an independent artist, the gifted singer-songwriter, who has toured with the likes of Dan + Shay, Jo Dee Messina, Billy Currington, Brantley Gilbert and many others, was forced to set aside his dreams to provide for his family.
Thinking that he’d never perform again, Austin set out to make a career change, but God had other plans.
Now Austin is thankful to have the opportunity for another shot at music. And, this time, he has his foot on the gas and momentum like a freight train. He brings that same sense of gratitude and high-powered energy to his upcoming six-track project, which showcases a sound that merges the ‘90s and early 2000s appeal with a modern rock edge. This refreshing combination, paired with a commanding stage presence, makes Austin a strong contender for headlining major concerts and large arenas.
His latest solo-penned release, “Turn the Night On,” showcases his distinctive twang vocals over heavy electric guitar rhythms and driving percussion. Lyrically, the offering plays out as a thank you letter to his fans, affectionately known as his "KAmpfire" family.
“Without their support, I wouldn't be able to record and release new music, so I wanted to include a song on my EP for them,” Austin says of adding “Turn the Night On” on the project. “It embodies the spirit of summer, sitting around a bonfire, listening to music, and having some drinks with your best friends. It's the kind of song that makes you feel good.
