Julian Austin with Shane Chisholm
Sat, Oct 22


Tiem: 9 p.m.


If you like country music and you like a great value, come on down to Average Joe’s Sports Bar on Saturday, October 22. For the low ticket price of $15.00, you will get to see and hear Canadian country music star, Julian Austin.

Julian Austin, an Average Joe’s favorite, has been on the country music scene for a decade now and has numerous awards and nominations to his credit. He will be performing songs from his 5th CD which was released in May of last year. The album includes 5 original tracks written by Julian, and covers of 5 other great tunes as diverse as Queens; Fat Bottomed Girl, and Rod Stewart’s; Maggie May.
  What best-selling country music artist do you know who can successfully pull off the quintessential line “even the dog knows she ain’t comin’ back” on the same album on which he records covers of tunes by Queen, Elvis Presley and Rod Stewart?

Born in Sussex, New Brunswick, Julian Austin has written and played music since he was in his mid-teens, dabbling in every genre from heavy metal to rock to 80’s pop before falling in love with the new country music sound that was taking shape in the early 90’s. In 1998 Austin moved out west to Calgary Alberta to live with his then fiancée Angela. While living out west Austin further honed his musical skills in both writing songs and entertaining the fans. His first album, “What My Heart Already Knows”, more than justified that musical choice, earning Julian a certified CRIA gold record (50k+ sales) and the 1997 Wrangler Rising Star Award from the Canadian Country Music Association.
