In March of 2019 Austin Meade delivered a nostalgic ride through the time honored sounds of rock mixed with Americana with his album Waves, the follow-up to his 2016 EP Heartbreak Coming.

Waves took all of 7 days to record this album, a solid week of ideas traded back and forth between Meade and his producer Elijah Ford, who also played bass and sang backing harmonies. The brutal honesty that is the foundation of their relationship became the compass towards the album’s true north.

"Happier Alone" has really changed my life just since it’s release on Valentine’s Day. We felt it was a special song from the day it was written and I’m so thankful for the people that helped my translate such a simple idea into a kickass song and video.

Today (November 10th) Meade released the music video for his breakout hit "Happier Alone," which he says was a blast to make. "We worked our asses off, and put a team together, mostly comprised of close friends, and they were able to take the idea out of my brain and put it on camera perfectly."


In addition to the new music video, Austin also announced a new record deal with Snakefarm Records, and a new album, Black Sheep, that is coming in February 2021.
