Growing up in small town, Cordele, GA, Austin French dreamed of sharing his faith and passion for Jesus through music at a young age. Being surrounded by a musical family inspired his passion for writing music. As he began to develop his gifts he formed bands learning to take his music to stages and churches.
After becoming the worship pastor at Journey Church, in Tifton, GA, French met his wife, Joscelyn. While serving there, French was featured on the first season of the ABC TV show "Rising Star," where he finished as runner-up. After the show, Austin and his wife moved to Florida, and then to Nashville, TN in 2017 where French began his journey into the CCM industry, signing with Fair Trade Services. After moving to Nashville, French and his wife adopted their son, and while in the process, gave birth to their second little boy. French has released five songs from his anticipated debut album, Wide Open, set to release Sept. 7th, "Freedom Hymn," "Wide Open," "Why God," "Good Feeling," and his latest, "Born Again."
