He maintains an active career performing regularly with local quintet Good Time Brass. Additionally, Austin has performed and taught masterclasses in multiple international music festivals, presented his composition onstage at TEDx, collaborated with artists such as Hilá Plitmann, Joe Lovano, Stefano Greco, Christopher Bill, and opened for Stevie Wonder at the Circuit of the Americas.
