AUSTIN BUSCH

28/08/2011 4:00 pm

Austin Busch brings his love of blues, soul and song together with a diverse vocal range and creates a musical journey which is unique. Inspired by old time Blues and Soul he delivers a performance which can jump from a smooth soulfulness to a raspy punch.

Spending the last few years travelling throughout the country and abroad with his band Austin has become a regular on the touring circuit playing at festivals and earning supports for artists such as Bob Brozman (USA), James Hunter (U.K).

Now as he and the band take a well earned break from the extensive touring and spend time writing material for a new cd Austin has stripped back his songs, crafted them into solo format and taken them on the road on his own. This is where it all grew from for Austin and is quite fitting to have come full circle for the next stage of his story.

I started DJing about 7 years ago,dance music is a real passion of mine. I just love to entertain people and my music style is always fresh but even with the constant progression in all genres of dance music I like to keep a funky element in my sets.i I’ve played sets all over Ireland including Pod, Tripod and Wax which are in dublin and heaps more. I have supported Justin Robertson, The Japanese Posters, David De Valera, Paul Webb & The Rubberbanits. I recently moved to Australia and hope the club scene is as vibrant as it is back home in Ireland
