Autumn Knight :
Born and raised to a music-loving family in Los Angeles, singer-songwriter and pop artist, Autumn Knight, was performing before she could talk. Making her first debut on the stage through ballet, Autumn remembers the spark that performing for an audience brought to her life.
As she grew into her own, Autumn was introduced to the music of Fleetwood Mac, Simon & Garfunkel, Tori Amos, and Sarah McLachlan. Mesmerized by their musical abilities, she was inspired to write her own lyrics and music. Autumn delved deeper into her passion for music at age 10 when she and her family moved to San Diego. She started performing original songs at local coffee shops and landed lead roles in musical theatre productions at her community theatre.
Through years of dedication, perseverance, and love of craft, Autumn has established herself into a triple threat. She went on to attend the renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston — the same alma mater as music legends Quincy Jones, Charlie Puth and John Mayer — to become an experienced vocalist, pianist, guitarist and lyricist.
After college, she returned to the heart of where it all began, LA, where she focused her energy into writing, recording and performing new music. With her innate ability to own the stage, she performed her first EP “Ready” at iconic music venues throughout LA like the House of Blues.
Gaining some much-needed inspiration in LA, in 2015 Autumn wanted a change of pace and moved to Nashville to buckle down on her next album and develop a new sound. Moving to a new city gave Autumn the fresh perspective she needed to write her next hit single at the time, “Outline,” which is about the beauty of starting a new chapter and becoming one’s own muse.
Now three years later, Autumn has worked with some of the best in the industry, including Grammy Award winner Bernie Grundman whose clients include Madonna, Prince, and Lenny Kravitz. In May, Autumn released her latest single, title track and music video “HERE AND NOW” in debut of her highly anticipated album, which is set to be released this fall. From danceable, up-beat instrumentals, to dreamy pop lyrics, Autumn’s original track and album are all about forgetting the past, living in the moment and stepping into one's power.
When Autumn is not in the studio or performing live, she makes time to volunteer as a musical mentor at Teen Emergency Homeless Centers in Nashville and LA, along with other humanitarian charities.
Believing music has the power to heal, Autumn is doing her part to share her gift with others. Her latest single “HERE AND NOW” is available for download and on all streaming platforms including Spotify and Apple Music.
