Who Is Sam Austins

IMG_2794.jpg

22 year-old Sam Austins is a bit of an enigma in the Detroit rap scene-- influenced by the street side of things, but with Motown in his blood and an unapologetic love for Kanye West, Toro y Moi, and groups like Paramore, he’s pushing boundaries while he crosses them. He ended 2017 with an EP ("ANGST") that the city's Alt Weekly called the best project of the year by an emerging artist, echoing praise by national publications. He was named their #1 urban artist to watch. He’s been streamed some 2 millions+ times, featured on Spotify’s Most Necessary, Alternative R&B, and Chill Vibes playlists, Ebro’s Motivation Mix, and has been covered by the likes of Billboard, Pigeons & Planes, Lyrical Lemonade, XXL, Fake Shore Drive, Elevator, Earmilk, Rookie Mag, Adam22, Boi-1da, and more.
