ASTN, whose real name is Austin Sanders, has crafted a musical journey deeply rooted in his passion for music, which began in childhood. Born with a natural affinity for rhythm, he first encountered music through a drum set as a toddler. His early exposure to music proved to be invaluable, especially as his family relocated frequently across the southern United States before finally settling in the Sunshine State, Florida.
As ASTN’s journey unfolded, he pursued his love for music through formal education. He studied jazz during his college years, honing his skills and musical understanding. This formal training provided him with a solid foundation in music theory and instrumentation.
Drawing inspiration from the warmth of R&B and the poppier elements of trap music, ASTN began crafting his unique sound. His artistic evolution led to the creation of projects like ‘Tell Your Friends,’ released in December 2017. This project marked a significant step in his musical career, featuring the surprise hit ballad, “Love No More.” The track resonated with audiences and showcased ASTN’s ability to connect with listeners on an emotional level.
In June of the following year, ASTN demonstrated even greater depth as a songwriter with the release of ‘IT’S NOT THAT SERIOUS.’ This project expanded his artistic horizons and further solidified his presence in the music industry.
ASTN’s creativity extended beyond traditional music releases. He ventured into the realm of remixing, showcasing his boundary-pushing production skills through his “what if this song was rnb?” remix series on social media. This innovative approach to reinterpreting popular tracks earned him a dedicated online following.
A pivotal moment in ASTN’s career occurred in early November 2021 when he posted a TikTok remix of Billie Eilish’s “Happier Than Ever.” ASTN transformed the track into a nostalgic slow jam that resonated deeply with viewers. The TikTok clip quickly gained traction, amassing an astounding four million views in just one night. Within two months, it exploded to a staggering 56.6 million views, catapulting ASTN into the spotlight and creating significant demand for a full-length cover.
Now, with the release of “Gradually” and more new music on the horizon, ASTN is poised to share the musical treasures he has been carrying in his heart all along. He believes in the universal message that progress is possible, regardless of the challenges one faces. He states, “Even if it’s not this relationship you’re in, if it’s not this battle you’re fighting now, you are almost there, whether ‘there’ is a million miles down the road or a couple of feet ahead of you. I’m living proof of that.”
With his newfound partnership with Warner Music, ASTN’s message and music are destined to reach an even larger and more diverse audience than ever before. His musical journey reflects a fusion of dedication, talent, and authenticity, and he continues to evolve as an artist, leaving an indelible mark on the world of music.
