He looks like a classic 70s rocker and his music and guitar style don’t stray much from that era.

Austin Meade, often called a guitar shredder, is from New Braunfels and is touring in support of his new album “Waves.” The album dropped March 1 and he will perform Saturday at Dos Amigos on a bill with Stoney LaRue.

Via email, Meade said he is excited to be in Odessa – especially with Stoney LaRue.

"We've been waiting a long to come back through Odessa. I am excited to share my new album "Waves" with all of you! This is our first time through West Texas since the release,” he said. “The reception has been amazing and I'm always pumped to play with Stoney and his crew. We're ready for a rock show and can't wait to see the good folks in Odessa.”

The 25-year-old features songs that talk about corrupted love, cocaine, prison, church, and the hard living of the common working man. His press materials detail that Meade nearly followed in his father’s footsteps as a church minister.

A former drummer, Meade played in a cover band for years while earning his business degree at Texas A&M in College Station before discovering his inner songwriter.

His concerts have been reviewed as “alive, living in the moment and fueled by animal instinct. This live show approach is a lost art, an audiovisual alchemy that brings the crowd directly into his world.”

A recent article on elmoremagazine.com states that “Waves comes at the right time for all of us looking for music of real substance.”

In that same article Meade talked about paying his dues and his music.

Meade told Elmore about a series of his own “waves.”

“I am my own worst critic, and I think that is necessary for anyone creating art or running a business. It creates internal drive for me to improve everything I do. Take those bad habits or negative experiences, realize that improvement can happen, and use it as inspiration for change.”
