Audien hails from Mystic, Connecticut to a musical household. His mother is a jazz aficionado. In 2008, he was introduced to electronic dance music through trance songs in video game soundtracks. Fascinated by the sound of trance, he learned to recreate songs from Armin Van Buuren's 'A State of Trance' podcasts.
At age 17, Audien was first signed to Dutch producer and DJ Ferry Corsten's label Flashover Recordings. Flashover Recordings released Audien's first single, "Rise & Shine".
