Discovery: Austin Martin

American singer-songwriter and musician Austin Martin adds a bluesy twang into the country genre with new track, Country Drunk.

By Jane Howkins

Country Drunk has all the hallmarks of a stereotypical country tune, with Austin writing lyrics that poke fun at the genre, but in a loving way. The main guitar riff is awesome here – it’s catchy, yet there’s also a heavy edge, giving the listener the best of both worlds. Whilst Austin’s vocals do have a typical country twang to them, he’s clearly got a fantastic singing voice, adding a lot of soul to this banger of a tune. That catchy chorus will have you singing along in no time – why not take a look at the video below?!
