Austin Findley

Austin Findley is working on an upcoming album called: Eaten. It’s going to take influences from Shoegazers, Britchesters, and Indie-Rockers ‘round the world. He’s also adding recipes to a cookbook.

His unique style was a result of listening to hours of music. He grew to love The Stone Roses, for their dance-able rhythm, trippy vocals, and psychedelic guitar sounds. David Bowie taught Austin the art of singing and changing with the seasons. Lou Reed & The Velvet Underground influenced his views on poetry, music, and art. Iggy Pop, Van Morrison, The Rolling Stones, & Led Zeppelin also added some depth to his music.

He started learning music theory at age 14; when he began playing with a program called: LMMS. He learned more, as the years went by. Plugins-upon-plugins more were added to his arsenal: Audacity, Aria Maestosa, & Anvil Studio.

With all of these influences, where is Austin Findley from? He’s from the Mid-West. Born on August 13th, 1997 to a family from the country. He was raised in small towns around Mid-Missouri. The most important being: Vienna, MO & Jefferson City, MO. If it weren’t for Tobuscus, Eminem, & Mrs. Stegner; he wouldn’t be who he is today.

After a few years went by, he started to get noticed by the Internet Community. He now has followers & monthly listeners in the thousands.

When it came to instrumentation, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Charles Mingus, & Dave Brubeck Quartet instructed Knacky in the School of Jazz. Koji Kondo, Yasunori Mitsuda, Nobuo Uematsu, Michiru Yamane, & Hiroki Kikuta shaped his understanding of Classical Music. My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Ride, & Sigur Rós, governed his use of the Reverb Pedal. Stevie Wonder & Marvin Gaye shaped his vocal delivery.

Os Mutantes, Jorge Ben Jor, Chico Buarque, & Novos Baianos impacted his percussion. So, did Kendrick Lamar, Tyler, The Creator, BROCKHAMPTON, NAS, & Madvillan. The later also influenced his songwriting. Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, Nick Drake, Love, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Sufjan Stephens, & others impacted his music in immeasurable ways.

He likes the shows: Twin Peaks (New & Old), Breaking Bad, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Cowboy Bebop, Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, Batman: The Animated Series, and Devilman: Crybaby.

He enjoys watching: A Clockwork Orange, Dark Knight Trilogy, Alien & Aliens, Nightmare on Elm Street, Get Out, Toy Story I & III, UP, WALL-E, The Incredibles, Schindler’s List, Pulp Fiction, Inception, The Matrix, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Donnie Darko, Goodfella, The Departed, Ghost in the Shell, Akira, & Blade Runner (Old One). He plans to watch: A Quiet Place; whenever it appears in a Red-Box near him.
