Singer/songwriter/musician Austin Brown has officially released part one of his ‘Highway 85′ mixtape.
CLICK HERE to check out Austin’s interview with BET.com, where he offers some insight to his unique sound, and what it’s like being a part of the Jackson family legacy.
When asked about how easy his career has been because of his family, Austin told BET:
“It has not been a walk in the park. I’ve gone through a lot in this business and am still going through a lot. It was meant to be harder for me and it’s okay. When you’ve had people be so successful – not just successful, my family has been a part of people’s lives.”
The songs on Highway 85 combine classic soul with electro-pop-infused R&B and stellar vocals. As Austin describes the sound, it’s “The Funk Brothers meets A Tribe Called Quest at a Quincy Jones barbecue.”
