Excellence in one's craft can be achieved only through the long-term combination of passion and commitment. Since picking up his first drum sticks at the young age of 10, Sydney-based multi- instrumentalist, songwriter and producer Rick Austin has demonstrated no shortage of either virtue.
Rick has honed his musical and technical abilities through countless hours of performance and research, developing himself into a veritable swiss army knife of music production that is capable of engaging with artists of varied disciplines and adapting to different roles as necessary. In this time he has amassed a body of work that not only spans genres but demonstrates his aptitude in all stages of the musical process, from writing and performing to engineering and production.
A pupil of drumming icon Lucius Borich and the recipient of a Bachelor of Music (Performance), Rick's undeniable playing skill and infectious live energy are apparent the moment he sits behind a drum kit. This powerful stage presence was developed and refined across multiple tours of Australia and USA.
Rick's devotion to musical exploration extends past performance and into the realm of production and engineering. Earning an assistant production role at the prestigious Studios 301 Studios 301, Rick Austin had the privilege of working with industry heavyweights such as Justin Bieber, Will.I.Am, Flight Facilities, Bliss & Eso, Birds of Tokyo, Marcia Hines & Panama, as well as a litany of other artists including the winners and finalists of The Voice Australia.
