Teaming up with Grammy-award-winning producer and engineer Guy Massey (The Beatles, Manic Street Preachers, Richard Hawley), Austel shares alluring new single ‘Company’, a song about toxic and obsessive relationships.
‘And honey, I have never known myself
In the company of someone such as yourself
And we circle ‘round the fuel like flies
I turn to your many eyes, your many eyes’
Austel – aka Annie Rew Shaw – is a Devon-born London-based artist and producer crafting introspective, brooding music led by ethereal vocals and intimate lyricism.

Her self-released EPs ‘Unfold’ and ‘Cold Love’ received plaudits from the likes of BBC 6 Music, The Line Of Best Fit, O2 Music, BBC Introducing and Fresh On The Net.
Austel’s latest single ‘Beds Of Stone’ was co-produced with Grammy-award-winning producer and engineer Guy Massey, and featured on Spotify UK & Ireland’s Fresh Finds, RTÉ, Amazing Radio & BBC Introducing. Her highly-anticipated debut album is scheduled for release in February 2024.
