From the humble beginnings of small town Godley, Texas, Austin Upchurch has been hungry to chase down a dream he didn't think was possible until he taught himself how to play guitar in his dorm room in college. After finishing school at Howard Payne University, he proceeded to chase after his own pursuit of happiness. With his initial release of a back-sided single titled All Wrong, Upchurch was able to get his dream out for people to sample for the first time. He released his music on Spotify, Amazon Music, and Itunes in 2017. In 2018 Austin realized he needed some help and started auditioning potential band members. After a mutual friend introduced Upchurch to bassist Will "Willy H" Carrier, there was an immediate creative connection. Consequently, Will brought on his life long friend Matt Pickard to play drums. After which, Austin brought on his good buddy Reed Barton to play lead guitar, and thus the band was formed. In January 2019, Upchurch and company started playing their first of many live shows while also releasing two more back-sided singles titled "Remember When" and "A Hundred Thoughts". After a successful first year, Upchurch and company started 2020 with the release of their single "Pearson Road," as well as two subsequent singles, "Aurora & Rain Coming Down," from their debut album "Breakdown" which was released on July 10, 2020.
