Momentum Continues for Emerging Country Act Leaving Austin With EP Release Southern Gold

The momentum for country trio Leaving Austin  continues to build following last week’s release of their Southern Gold EP, with
the collection of new tunes holding strong in the Top 15 of the iTunes
Country Chart all weekend. The project comes on the heels of a new
worldwide co-publishing deal under a partnership agreement with Sea
Gayle Music and BMG Nashville. With over 5.5 million streams and
counting, the project includes the popular “Nothing But You” (1 million
+) along with their brand new track, “She Can.”

less than a year, Californians Austin Machado, Davis Forney and Michael
Stevens have garnered co-writes with some of country music’s most
successful songwriters including Jimmy Robbins (“We Were Us”, “It Goes
Like This”), Dave Barnes (“Craving You”, “God Gave Me You”), Scooter
Carusoe (“Anything But Mine”, “Mean To Me”), Chris DeStefano (“Kick The
Dust Up”, “Something In The Water”), Chris Dubois (“Buy Me A Boat”,
“Today”) and Thomas Archer (“Hurricane,” “You Broke Up with Me”).  Their
smooth vocals and distinctive songwriting have made them one of the
most sought after new bands in Nashville. “It’s surreal to finally have Southern Gold out there for
people to hear. We have been sitting on these songs for such a long
time, so now, to finally be able to share them, to get messages from
fans who have grown to love these songs like we do, to play shows and
hear a crowd sing our songs back to us – it’s just an amazing feeling,”
said Leaving Austin frontman, Austin Machado. “It’s been such an
incredible journey to get to this point, and we’re so thankful to
everyone who’s come along for the ride to support us.”To celebrate the release of Southern Gold, Leaving Austin performed songs off the new project last night to a packed room at Nashville’s sought-after Analog.

Ahead of their release, Leaving Austin stopped by WSM’s Coffee, Country and Cody to talk more about Southern Gold,
performing several songs from the project. Along with BMG’s Jake Gear
and Sea Gayle’s Chris Dubois, the trio also sat down for an exclusive
interview with Music Row about their recent co-venture signing with two top publishers.

“I got a call to do a co-write with I showed up for the write,
and I was really impressed with them,” said Sea Gayle Music’s Chris
DuBois. “We wrote two songs that day, and it was very obvious to me that
the guys were not only real songwriters but they had a vision for who
they were as artists.”
