Austin Strange

What: Alternative Pop

Where: Orangeville, ON


Ontario modern pop maestro Austin Strange discovered his love for music at an early age, forming an acoustic duo in 2006 before breaking out on his own for the 2010 release of his solo single, “Broken.” Following an approximately five-year layoff, he resurfaced in 2015 with his single “Drunk,” which to date has racked up almost 150,000 views on YouTube.

Partway through the summer of 2019, Strange released his latest single, “Elevator,” a decadent dose of enveloping, dance-ready pop that has not only remarkably surpassed 230,000 online views, but could also stand shoulder-to-shoulder on the charts with the likes of fellow Canucks Shawn Mendes and Alessia Cara.
