About This Event
On Black Sheep, Austin Meade delivers songs andstories that, like the young singer/guitarist himself, are contradictory yetcohesive. His influences—musical and otherwise—are as varied and rich as thesmall-town Texas soil that nurtured his talent, yielding 12 stellar songs ranging from the insinuatingmulti-layered musicality and storytelling of “Déjà Vu” to the dark alt-pop of“Happier Alone,” and on further to the new-age, Sabbath-inspired “DopamineDrop.”
Thanks to his metal- and classic-rock loving dad,Meade got to see bands like Judas Priest and worshipped Whitesnake. In juniorhigh he related to the intense emo-rock of Paramore and Fall Out Boy, and thepower of songwriters like John Mayer. Yet, thanks to plainspoken but deep heartlandsongwriters like Tom Petty, and cutting his teeth touring in the Texas and Oklahoma Red Dirt scene, Meade’s music overflows with wide-open soulfulness. Hewas a drummer for years, even teaching to pay the bills, but Meade found his truevoice when he began playing guitar as a teen in his pastor-father’s church.Those experiences lend both a gravitas and rebelliousness to Meade’s songs andself.
