Raised in a home where music is prevalent, it’s no surprise that Austin Thomson has developed a deep love for music. Since picking up the guitar at the age of five, Austin has eagerly developed his talent. Influenced by artists such as Buddy Guy, B.B King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Eric Clapton, Austin has fallen in love with the blues. Now 14, Austin enjoys performing for audiences of all ages. This past year, Austin has enjoyed debuting his talent at the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival (Summer 2016) as well as playing local fundraisers and other events. One of Austin’s most exciting events happened recently as his video/song “I Really Hate Snow” got more than 780,000 views on social media and was shown on news broadcasts across the country! Austin is looking forward to continuing to showcase his love of music during festivals and events during 2017.
