Shawn Austin is a Vancouver-based singer-songwriter who's quickly made his mark in the Canadian country music scene.

Since then, Austin has been performing with both Canadian and US country artists, and in 2018 he was named a semi-finalist in the SiriusXM Top of the Country competition. Learn more at
