Andrew Austin Releases Video for ‘If It Ain’t This Town’ from While It’s Still Light Out LP
Toronto singer-songwriter Andrew Austin continues to build momentum off his debut album ‘While It’s Still Light Out,’ appearing on Canada AM Thursday May 8 ahead of two showcase sets at Canadian Music Week.
On top of that, Austin has released a heart-achingly nostalgic video for the song ‘If It Ain’t This Town,’ directed by Eric James Mayer.

Austin, a native of Sarnia ON, recruited legendary producer David Newfeld (Broken Social Scene, Super Furry Animals) to help carve out the sound he has been cultivating for years. Recorded in Newfeld’s Dobbstown, Ontario Haunted Church studio, the process of creating ‘While It’s Still Light Out’ was so involved and intense that Austin ended up living out of the adjoining Priest’s House for a period of time.
Austin’s resume also includes a stint as bandleader for Andy Kim and performing in a Beatles tribute act. But perhaps he is best known to some as the voice behind Tim Horton’s ‘It’s Time For Tims’ and Alexander Keith’s ‘Toast This Life’ campaigns. The latter ended up charting in the top 10 on ITunes and has achieved over 100,000 hits on Youtube and counting. You can listen to the ‘Toast This LIfe’ tune HERE.
