Transcript of Austin Carlile

Austin Robert Carlile Zac McMurtrey Austin Carlile's childhood Austin was born on September 27th, 1987 in Pensacola, Florida. Austin's childhood consisted of a lot of moving. Because of this, he was always picked on as the "new kid" in school. Mothers Death When Austin was 17 his mother died from Marfan Syndrome. Marfan syndrome is a disease that effects the connective tissues. This impacted Austin's life greatly, as you could imagine. This pushed Austin to be the best he could be, to make his mother proud. Austin's mother and father Columbus, Ohio After moving many times, he ended up in Columbus, Ohio in 2006, five states later. While living in Ohio he formed the band Attack Attack!. This is the start of Austin's career, and the beginning stages of being able to send his message to many people. Attack Attack!'s first album "Someday Came Suddenly". This is the only album Austin is on. Of Mice & Men In 2008, Austin Carlile left Attack Attack!. Later that year, he moved to Huntington Beach, California to form a new band, "Of Mice & Men". In this band, he wrote a song titled "Second and Sebring", which is about his mother. Of Mice & Men Heart Surgery On May 28, 2010 Austin had to undergo heart surgery. Like his mother, Austin has Marfan Syndrome. His surgery required opening his chest cavity, and performing open heart surgery to replace his aortic valve. Because of this, Austin was forced to leave Of Mice & Men. Austin's heart surgery Rejoin Of Mice & Men In January of 2011, Of Mice & Men called Austin and asked him to rejoin the band. Austin, as well as new guitarist Alan Ashby, reunited with the band. Aspire And Create In the spring of 2012 Austin launched his clothing line "Aspire and Create". Through Aspire and Create, he is able to help people. With every "Create Music" t-shirt sold, the proceeds go to the John Lennon Music Bus. The John Lennon Music Bus is a non profit organization that allows students of all ages the opportunity to create and record music, as well as make video projects.
Austin also uses Aspire and Create as a way to do charity work, setting up food drives, and donations to many foundations. Austin Carlile quotes Make your own footprints, make your own memories. Be yourself because that's something no one can ever take away from you. It gets better. It always gets better. Life will never put you through more than you can handle. Wake up and create a purpose for yourself. Don't ask the meaning of life, ask yourself the meaning of each given day. It gets better, always. Always. Every day and month and year is a page or chapter. Get to the end of your book. Don't end it too soon. (about depression/suicide) Be your own person because no one can take that away from you. No one is ever going to be you. Evan Somewhere in America is a guy called Evan. In Austin Carlile’s phone he’s down as Evan Help because about six months ago, he contacted the Of Mice & Men frontman on twitter at his lowest point - beaten by his father and kicked out of home, he had no one else to turn to. AUstin responded and gave Evan his phone number just so he had someone to talk to. Over the next few weeks Austin helped find Evan a job and get back on his feet.
“I even helped him get health insurance, and I don’t even have health insurance. He texted me the other day to say he got a raise and... and he’s so proud.” Sitting in the back lounge of his band’s bus in California. Austin’s voice is cracking. “This right there is why I do it. I don’t care what anybody out there says about me, because it makes my day when Evan Help pops up on my phone. That’s why I want to exist,” This last sentence is gulped through a haze of tears as the vocalist draws his knees up to his chin and does his best to avoid eye contact. If you have enough strength to help yourself, you have the strength to help those in need. Never pass up an opportunity.
