Austin Brown is a 25-year-old musician, singer, performer, producer, dancer and songwriter based in Los Angeles, California. He comes from one of the world's greatest musical families, the Jacksons, around whom he has grown up and developed his musical talents. He is the son of Maureen "Rebbie" Jackson, and the nephew of Michael, Janet and the other seven Jackson sisters and brothers. Among Austin's major influences are ground breaking artist Prince, music legend George Michael, his uncle Michael Jackson (who helped him with his vocal, melodic, harmonic and dance development) and his uncle Randy Jackson (who helped build his instrumental skills and educated him in song structure). Randy is the youngest of the Jackson brothers, a multi-instrumentalist who wrote some of the Jacksons' greatest songs, including "Shake Your Body". As a young man, Austin received encouragement from Prince when the musician overheard Austin playing the piano in his hotel suite. "He told me no matter what I did, to keep playing. He said 'by the time you're my age you'll be able to play anything you want.' I'll never forget that advice." ..."He [Prince] told me no matter what I did, to keep playing. He said 'by the time you're my age you'll be able to play anything you want.' I'll never forget that advice."The combination of Austin's musicianship and work ethic has impressed many of the people who've collaborated with him. "As a persona, a talent, an entertainer and a singer Austin is quite remarkable," says his vocal coach Gary Catona, who has taught some of the greatest voices and talents in modern times, from Whitney Houston to Andrea Bocelli, from Brian Wilson to Seal. "On top of that he's been a devoted student and is totally committed to becoming a wonderful singer. He has this amazing vocal instrument with a range and power that's second to almost no-one in the pop industry."
