Growing up in small town, Cordele, Ga, young Austin French dreamed of being a Contemporary Christian Artist writing songs that shared his faith and passion for Jesus.
He began leading at Journey Church, in Tifton, GA at the age of 18 and became the full-time worship pastor. While serving there in 2014 Austin French was featured on the first season of the ABC TV show “Rising Star,” He won the hearts of millions of viewers, including guest judges Ludacris, Ke$ha,
and Brad Paisley,
and competed his way to the finale. He finished as the runner-up on the show and had the opportunity to share the stage with multi-platinum recording artist, Josh Groban.
Austin states "At the end of the day, there are songs, productions, t-shirts, and a thousand small details that are a part of this journey, but the most important thing to me, and my reason for breathing, is to serve and worship my King and Savior, Jesus Christ. That's why I'm in this. And I hope that when people hear my music or come to a show that they see and hear the Gospel in action, saving me currently and reaching out to their reality."
