Odd Austin is a parody artist, who writes and records obviously, parody music, his songs might also be described as dementia or comedy, but Iâm sure you already knew that, aside from writing music Austin enjoys watching TV, obsessively checking his email to see what updates might have come in the last two minutes, and talking in the third person.
He got started in the early 2000s, he was sitting in class probably gluing together some pointless arts and craft assignment in fourth grade and his friend Matt was singing this song, a curious Austin said, âWhat are you singing you freak!â. Then he responded âYoda, by Weird Alâ. That day Odd Austin was born. After that he wrote down lyrics in a book bought for him previously, he filled the journal with lyrics of any thing that randomly came into his head. I think there was even a song about seatbelts in there. We would advise you not to look further into this lyric book that marks the origins of his music, most of the lyrics in there would most likely be classified as âœAwfulâ쳌, there really no point in emailing to ask if you could get some of the lyrics from it, unless you would like to gouge your eyes out after approximately two seconds of reading. Umâ where was Iâ oh right!
In mid-2005 Austin tried to record some of these songs in the most pathetic way possible, a tape recorder! Obviously these songs sounded terrible, but once he heard that his uncle Travis had a recording system on his computer called Magix, Austin first said âWould you help me record?â So in late 2005 Austin had his first demo album, a small ten track CD with parodies of Green Day and other related punk artists. The following year he released five more demo albums thus creating a small fan base via MySpace and other internet sites.
Since then Austin has been played on The Dr. Demento Show, The Mad Music Dementia Top 20 (With 3 songs hitting #1 to date), The Mad Music Show, and Kahn Man's Comedy Corner to name a few. His music has been described as hilarious and clever by many and a few have even called some of his songs the funniest recording theyâve ever heard. At the extremely young age of 15, Austin is quite possibly the youngest comedian in the parody music industry today, and is opening doors to a promising future in dementia music. In 2008 he began recording his first studio album âœWrong Side of the Bedâ쳌 which was in the making for over four years.
