Austin Crute is an up-and-coming singer, songwriter, producer, and actor from Atlanta, Georgia.

After starring as 'Black Justin Bieber' on Donald Glover’s Golden Globe winning TV series Atlanta , Crute has become well-known for his undeniable talent and electrifying personality, as he continues to exhibit and develop his multitude of skill and artistry that span across music, film & tv, and musical theater.

The 21-year-old NYU student is a former contestant on The Hub’s reality show Majors and Minors, and dropped his debut mixtape PLAY this past summer — which is available to stream and download on all music services . Entirely self-written and self-produced, the tape was praised by Pigeons & Planes for its ability in “blending hip-hop, R&B, and pop,” stating that, “PLAY is a solid debut project, thanks in no small part to the excellent single ‘Data.’” Just before his role on Atlanta, he played the role of Seaweed in an Off-Broadway production of Hairspray.
