Austin began playing the keyboard when he was three years old, at which his curiosity was piqued by the music themes of his favorite television shows. His journey began as he tinkered around with piano keys in attempt to mimic and imitate the tunes he heard by ear (e.g, pokemon opening theme). At the age of 8, Austin began to take music passionately, performing his first gig alongside a drummer whom Austin regards as his musical mentor. The start of his musical journey inspired him, motivating him to work on his craftsmanship, musicality and technicality in music over the past decade. Over the years, Austin has had opportunities to take his musicianship skills overseas, performing in gigs in Busan, Korea in the year 2019.
