STREAM: Austin Kolbe – “Lips”

There’s nothing like stumbling across a new musician. So, for #StumblingSunday, let Planet Stereo introduce you to Austin Kolbe, a 20 year-old singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who seamlessly blends funk, pop, and rock.

A rocky upbringing, which at one point caused him to run away from home, play music on the street for money, and live in hostels while figuring out how to survive, forming his viewpoint of the world, and making him an independent spirit, leading to his rise above the chaos and graduation from music school.

For his first single for London Tone’s 52×52 launch campaign, he chose a song called “Lips.” “Writing ‘Lips’ was like a long affair, “ he remembers. “ It went through various musical changes for 3-4 years, while the provocative lyrics always stayed the same. When I finally got to record it with live musicians, it was like having the best sex of my life.”
