With a profound sense of brotherhood, a love of music and fierce determination, Leaving Austin is forging a path in country music that’s solely their own. Comprised of Austin Machado, Davis Forney and Michael Stevens, the trio’s smooth vocals and distinctive songwriting have made them a sought-after band in Nashville. They’ve garnered co-writes with some of country music’s most successful songwriters including Jimmy Robbins (“It Goes Like This”), Scooter Carusoe (“Mean To Me”), Chris DeStefano (“Something In The Water”), Chris Dubois (“Buy Me A Boat”) and Thomas Archer (“Hurricane.”) Hailing from Visalia, California, a small farming town in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, they were all raised on the importance of faith, family and the belief that nothing was going to be handed to them. After six years of writing and touring while working on a dairy farm, their hard work paid off. Leaving Austin’s EP’s, Leaving Austin and That Feel Good, have over 3 million streams on Spotify to date and they’ve played up and down the west coast giving them the opportunity to open for Lynyrd Skynyrd, Josh Turner, Dwight Yoakum, Brett Young, Wynonna Judd, Michael Ray and more. The band is grateful for the community that surrounds them and the opportunity to create music. “Country music is a community,” Davis said. “While we didn’t grow up in Nashville, we have been embraced by this town. And we are getting to make it with some of the most talented people in the world. We are just grateful.”
