Pop-punk rock rising artist Pretty Boy Austin is creating an impressive streak with the release of several of his singles this year. The 19-year-old musician from La Vernia, Texas, is introducing a new brand of music in the industry as he focuses on his unique musical stylings and distinct musicality. Determined to become popular someday, he is not wasting any time creating music while finishing his college degree.
Born Austin Light, the Environmental Science student from the University of Texas at San Antonio, released four singles this year, including “Love Trap,” “Ghost Boy,” “Run It Up,” and “Too Icy.” Pretty Boy Austin counts himself very fortunate to have his family and community support him passionately in his journey to become the next big thing in the music industry. His determination and hard work are two attributes that most people admire about him. He also pushes himself to see the good in every encounter, no matter how discouraging they can be. He has had negative comments said about his music in the past, but he only used them to become better at what he does.
Pretty Boy Austin was motivated to establish his personal brand as a serious music artist after having been diagnosed with severe depression. He went through a life-altering breakup in high school that left him feeling weak, unwanted, and hopeless. Music was the only thing that helped him get past those dark moments in his life when he would only see negativity. It was then that he fully realized that he is destined to impact lives around the world through his singing. Despite having been put on medication for several years to manage his depression, it was not as effective as how music has his life direction and semblance of inner peace.
Five years from now, Pretty Boy Austin sees himself becoming an international rock star and receiving awards for his impact on the music industry. He is also positively looking forward to being in a better mental state by then, someone who has matured significantly and is doing meaningful things for others. He wants to be able to take care of his family by making sure that they live comfortably. Moreover, he wants to be an inspiration to many young people who aspire to pursue their dreams. By sharing his life and music, he is motivating them not to give up and to always pursue their dreams.
“I want to know that if they are going through something or have always felt weight on their shoulders that they are not alone. I want them to look at me and say, ‘Oh yeah this guy knows how I’m feeling or have felt in the past.’ I want them to think of me as a kid who doesn’t give up and strives to do what he loves to do. I want them to receive motivation, I want them to dream big and tell themselves that nothing is too difficult to accomplish,” Pretty Boy Austin reveals.
