A lover of many styles of music and a true believer in the healing power of music, Austin Grimm has been writing and singing songs since the age of ten. He spent a decade as the leader of the band Roots of a Rebellion (or ROAR) based out of Nashville, TN who heavily toured the U.S. and released a #1 Billboard Reggae Album called "Shapes of a Soul” in 2019. Since the band’s hiatus, Austin has been pursuing other passions and developing as a teacher. Whether it’s private music lessons (guitar, ukulele, bass, piano and drums), outdoor education/conservation efforts, or teaching yoga, Austin is beyond blessed to be able to share his love for music, nature and mindfulness with people of all ages. Performing solo acoustic, as a duo with his wife Taylor, or with a full band of old ROAR friends, Austin emanates pure love and “joie de vivre” at his shows. Collaborating with others is where it’s at and it has been a pleasure creating music with old ROAR bandmate Marco Mar aka Mellodose as well as other friends in the scene: The Elovators, Sun-Dried Vibes, TreeHouse!, KNEX, Chinese Connection Dub Embassy and many more to come. Austin is inspired and uplifted by his family, friends, and fans as he aims to inspire others to follow their bliss and work hard to lead a meaningful life!
