Hey I’m Austin from the band To Breathe Again in Fort Wayne, IN! I’m super honored to have this opportunity and I’m excited to start working on my talent as a singer and YOUR projects! I learned some skills with programming drums while working on our record, Breaking The Silence, and my vocal performances are getting better with every take. I’m excited to get to work with bands and artists. Rock? Country? Pop? Let’s do it!
Influences include: Shinedown, Taylor Swift, InGhosts, Halestorm, Metallica, Skillet, etc…
My name is Austin and I sing for the band To Breathe Again. I’m 26, live in Fort Wayne, IN with my fiancé and guitarist, Greg Tyzzer; known by his stage name: Scotty Wiard. We are a hard rock duo (for now) looking to start playing our first shows this year when we can fill out the rest of our lineup with a bassist and a drummer, possibly beginning with our headlining wedding show on June 12th.
Outside of music, I play video games on Twitch. I’m an experienced The Sims builder and am working on growing my Twitch channel around it. I also love food.
Music has been the center of my life ever since I was a toddler. I would sing all over the house, put on concerts in my bedrooms, and living rooms when no one was home, WELL into my 20’s. I started writing my own songs when I was 15. The eureka moment for me was when my dad gifted me Metallica’s S&M concert DVD for Christmas when I was 13. That show changed my life. That was the moment I knew I HAD to be a singer when I grew up. I started trying to learn guitar, and I tried out for musicals where I could. The defining moment for me, however, is when I saw Shinedown for the very first time. They became my favorite band that night, but moreover, I finally saw the dream I had fell in love with clearly for the very first time. Around that time, I started going to as many concerts as I could and while I was in love with live music, it helped me strengthen my voice a little bit and I learned what I loved and wanted out of a live show, which has since become my true passion.
Greg and I are working hard between work, streams, and supporting our local bands and national friends writing for our next record and getting a bassist and drummer so we can start playing shows in our area. In the meantime, I would LOVE to get the opportunity to work with likeminded individuals to create something incredible!
