Early Life

Austin Reed 11

   Austin was born to Diane and David Reed IV, in Oregon. By the time he was 8 his family had moved to New Mexico, where Reed was in a horrible accident injuring his throat. While playing “pretend sumo wrestling” with a friend Austin flew into a table which ended up lacerating one of his vocal chords and putting him into a coma for 2 weeks nearly killing him. He was hospitalized for over 2 months, needing 5 emergency surgeries and an entire year of vocal therapy, changing his voice forever.

 

    This was devastating later in Reed’s life when he decided to pursue singing at a young age. His teachers refused to let him take lessons out of fear of further damaging his vocal chords. This only grew Austin’s persistence and desire to be a singer.

Europe

 

    Reed would eventually go on to perform at his first concert at age 12, and has been playing ever since. At 15 he was invited to Europe through a foreign exchange program which led to him performing in France and Germany. This was totally unplanned, spurring from a random performance at a bar in Nissa, France. After picking up a performer’s guitar and asking to play a song, being permitted, Reed was then asked to play the rest of the night. This led to a local news story that gained headline traction, leading to other headlines and invitations to perform throughout Europe. After this series of shows throughout Europe, Reed was dead set on his music career.

    After returning to the US and finishing high school, Reed quickly enrolled in a college music program at the University of New Mexico. Half way through the program Reed switched into business studies due to the lack of proper knowledge available about how to make it in the music industry.

 

    After switching to business, he began learning computer coding and how to build websites. This quickly turned into Reed starting his own business and generating an online income through dropshipping and offering marketing services. Soon later, he would leave school early to focus on his business and move to Colorado. Business opportunities continued to grow as he began networking online.

 

Argentina

    Eventually Reed would move to Argentina in July of 2017, to pursue music full-time with music partners he had met in Germany, Martin “Tincho” Huergo and Joaco Danna. Tincho and Joaco were from Argentina.

 

    They did a concert their first week in Argentina in July, and begun doing shows regularly around Córdoba. After two months in Argentina, Reed’s business was also picking up and he invited Joaco and Tincho to partner up. They moved into a bigger place to live by October, this is where Reed would meet his bride to be, Luana.

    By December, the business was doing really well and became more of their focus. They were still playing music, but Joaco the acting lead vocalist, seemed to be growing apart from the band. By February 2018, a month after officially partnering up as business partners, Joaco was out of the band and wanting to leave the company, wanting his share to be bought out.

 

    By May, they and the business were in financial shambles. Eventually they would have to break their lease on the house they were staying at. Austin moved back to the US for a few weeks to make some money, documenting it on YouTube, participating in a $10,000/month flip challenge.

 

Ecuador

 

   Reed was able to make enough money to pay off his partners and start getting things back on track. He moved to Ecuador in June to be with Luana and they were married in July. Reed played music anywhere he could in Ecuador, doing concerts and shows, even street performances. His business was also starting to get back on track.

 

    He stayed in Ecuador for 6 months, planning and preparing as well as working on his debut album. Eventually his marketing business would be converted to focus solely on his music career.

India

 

    Reed took a quick trip to Germany to see some of his old friends. While he was in Germany he made connections with a few people in the music industry and developed his music income.

 

    Soon after that he flew to India to meet a Facebook friend named Surya. Surya owned a studio in Rajasthan, India and Austin came down to help work on music. He stayed in Rajasthan for a month and than took a flight to Goa, India. After staying in Goa Austin decided to fly to Malaysia and further develop his musical career.

    Austin spent 3 months in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. When he first got there he worked hard on developing his fiverr income and started a new project called Austin Reed Beats.

 

    After a few months of working on the beats Austin stopped working on music for a bit to do some soul searching and reformulate a new plan. During this time Reed started taking vocal lessons to help him improve while he was planning. It was then that Austin decided to take a flight to Indonesia due to his Malaysian visa expiring.

 

Current

   After landing in Indonesia Austin quickly fell in love with the country. He spent 1 month here working on himself and taking a break from the constant grind. This gave him some much needed clarity and allowed him to formulate a solid plan for the future.     Deciding that he would like to stay in Indonesia for an extended period of time Austin decided to find a nice house in Padangbai, Bali and get a Social Visa. This allowed Austin To stay in Indonesia for up to 9 months. During this time Austin worked heavily on his voice taking specialized vocal lessons and practicing daily.   

    Some time during those 9 months Covid-19 hit which caused Austin to be on the Emergency visa for Bali. This allowed him to stay in Bali long after those original 9 months were over. Austin moved around the island and soon began the grind again. With the help of a small team he is working hard on releasing his debut album History. Currently Austin is in Ubud, Bali. He does not know where he will be next but he is excited for it.
