AUSTIN'S BIO

Austin Anthony Miller is a heavy hitter with a charismatic personality.  Born in Jefferson, Indiana in 1996, Austin was drawn to the drums at an early age.  He learned to play on his uncle's kit and drumming quickly turned into his passion. His style is a mixture of modern punk and traditional rock creating a powerhouse sound that is unique to Austin.

 

Austin met Skyler Jones and Matt Purlee and the three instantly bonded over their shared love of classic rock (Kiss) and modern alternative (Paramore) music.  The trio formed Lizzyz Revenge in 2010 but quickly evolved into the hard rocking, no nonsense band that is Beyond Doubt.  When drumming Austin is focussed and forceful.  He holds a steady rhythm, directing the band on course to their ultimate destination of Rock Gods. 

 

Beyond Doubt reached new heights with the addition of singer Alison Nelson and guitarist Dustin Goodwin in 2012.  They quickly became one of the most exciting new bands in the Louisville music scene.  In 2013, Beyond Doubt gained national attention when they won “Fan Favorite” at the Namm Schooljam Finals.  That same year they also released their self-titled EP and performed at the Vans Warped Tour.
