Born and raised in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Sam Austin knows what it means to be “country". Picking up the guitar as a young boy, Sam's hobby soon became a passion. In his late teens he began performing solo acoustic shows. As he continued with his acoustic shows his popularity continue to grow, leading to larger audiences and networking with other talented musicians.
Sam has now signed a recording contract with Plateau Music Nashville. Very much the traditionalist, Sam is steadfast in his quest to promote and perform real “Country Music” that connects with a broad audience. Produced by Tony Mantor, Sam’s first album was released in 2014. The first single “When She Does It” topped the charts at number 44 and the second single is set to release in early 2015.
Sam Austin and Silverline have been performing at venues across the State since 2007. The band members are:
Dean Hamilton (bass guitar & background vocals)
Tommy Jennings (lead guitar)
John Grandey (drums)
Jimmy Jennings (sound tech)
