Early Life and Education
Awsten Knight is a well-known American Rock singer from his lead vocalist and guitarist role in Waterparks – a Houston-based band. Like pointed out earlier, Awsten was born in Houston, Texas.
Awsten is a Caucasian and holds American nationality and he is currently 27 years old. Although private, Awsten’s family comprises four members with him and his sister being the only children in the house. His mother is a PE teacher, while Knight’s mother works as a nurse.
Currently, he is 5 feet and 10 inches tall, and he has psychedelic hair. Additionally, Knight also has heterochromia, which means that the color of his eyes keeps changing.
As Awsten was studying in class 4, he got inspired by Sum 41’s song to start playing the guitar.
As a result, Awsten quit college and chose music as his career path. This decision really shocked his parents. However, Knight would be seen holding a P.H.D certificate from the State University of Sheffield in September 2019.
Awsten kicked off his career in the music industry as a guitarist. He was playing guitar for a band called the Blue Poptarts band. Afterward, Awsten and George Matthieu created the Houston-based band called Waterparks in 2011. The two met while playing for different bands before coming up with this idea.
The first show with this band was on August 17, 2012. It was hosted at Warehouse Live in the city of Houston. Two members of the band left the group after that performance but were soon replaced by others.
The band released three EPs in November 2015 with two of them being released independently, while the other one under Equal Vision. Following those releases, Waterparks band released Double Dare. This was their first ever and a full-length album that they released in November 2016. Afterward, Awsten and the band left Equal Vision music company and signed with Hopeless where they released their third full-length album called Fandom.
When it comes to his personal life, Awsten is currently single but was in a relationship with Ciara Hannabut. The pair dated for a couple of years before breaking up, so there isn’t much of a story there to tell.
This is understandable considering that Awsten Knight doesn’t really like getting into detail about his personal life and relationships in the media.
