NEW YORK, March 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AXE® and SPIN return to Austin, Texas to present the AXE Collective + Crew Powered by SPIN and bring five musicians' stories to life through unique collaborations in music. As part of his continued partnership with AXE, Grammy & Oscar-winning musician John Legend handpicked five musicians from a nationwide search for the best and brightest talent to join the AXE Collective, and accompany him on one of music's biggest stages as they make their debut performances at SXSW Music on Thursday, March 17 at The Belmont Austin (305 W 6th St, Austin, TX 78701), from 12pm to 5pm.
The AXE Collective is a yearlong music and film mentorship program that inspires guys and girls to "Find Your Magic" and embrace the thing that makes them interesting and unique.
