Launching his first album well into his fifties, crooner Louie Austen became an unlikely fixture in the Austrian dance scene because of his unique fusion of jazz-pop and electronica. Delivered Alois Luef in Vienna in 1946, the classically educated vocalist performed on levels in L.A. and NY in the 1970s before going for a residency on the Cascade Club in his hometown. An opportunity conference in the past due ’90s with an experimental manufacturer resulted in a cooperation that mixed his Dean Martin-esque vocals with contemporary electro-disco. In 1999, he released debut record Consequences, that was followed by Just Tonight (2001), Easy Like (2003), and Iguana (2006). In 2007, he produced his very own label, LA Music, and released many EPs including My Amy, some songs focused on Amy Winehouse, and this year 2010, he released his 5th record, the two-disc Last Guy Crooning/Electrotaining You! Austen in addition has performed on songs with Peaches, Ada Fijal, and Phonique, and made an appearance as a internet casino gambler in the Oscar-winning film The Counterfeiters.
