An L.A. native, Austin spent five years in Japan as a singer before moving to the East Bay in 2009 to study at the UC Berkeley School of Law. During her studies, the pull of music was too strong to ignore, and she earned a full scholarship to the California Jazz Conservatory (formerly known as the JazzSchool), where she worked extensively with renowned Brazilian pianist Marcos Silva. Austin’s refreshing approach to the jazz tradition blends elements of R&B, hip-hop, and the blues in equal measure, creating a fresh and invigorating hybrid that stirs the soul and moves the body.

The songbook popularized by Ella Fitzgerald is the perfect project for Austin, who shares the late singing icon’s flawless timing, sweet sonority, and innate sense of swing. She has shared the stage with artists including Roy Ayers, John Handy, Marcus Shelby, Adam Theis, and Howard Wiley, and after the crowning success of 2015’s Con Alma Music release Nothing But Soul, Austin released Unbroken this year — a sublimely crafted bridge between straight-ahead jazz and deep blues featuring the iron-clad rhythm section of pianist Cyrus Chestnut, bassist Rodney Whitaker, and drummer Carl Allen.
