SUNDAY - RED BULL PRESENTS STAGE
22 year-old genre-bending artist Sam Austins is a bit of an enigma in the Detroit rap scene-- clearly influenced by the street side of things, but with Motown in his blood and an unapologetic love for groups like Paramore and The Killers. He’s pushing boundaries while he crosses them, and people are clearly drawn to it-- He’s been streamed some 2 millions times, featured on Spotify’s Most Necessary, Alternative R&B, and Chill Vibes playlists, Ebro’s Motivation Mix, and has been covered by the likes of Billboard, Pigeons & Planes, Lyrical Lemonade, Fake Shore Drive, Elevator, Earmilk, Rookie Mag, Adam22, Boi-1da, and more. 2018 was a breakout year for Austins, who oversold his hometown headlining debut show last spring (650+) before sharing stages with Post Malone, Pusha T, and Danny Brown later in the year. He hit NYC, Chicago and LA with Black Milk, and returned to NYC to premiere his latest single alongside Pusha T at Sony Music Hall.
