Talk about a rising star: Austin-based musician Dayglow is set to play "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Friday.

Sloan Struble, the singer-songwriter behind Dayglow, announced the news on Monday via social media. The venerable NBC talk show airs at 10:35 p.m. on KXAN, with actress Sadie Sink ("The Whale") also slated to appear Friday.

Struble is one of the greatest success stories in Austin music in recent years. Originally from the Fort Worth suburb of Aledo, he crafted debut album "Fuzzybrain" in his bedroom as a teenager. He eventually moved to Austin to attend the University of Texas, and while in school, his album blew up online.

Things have only gone up since then. Dayglow has played Austin City Limits Music Festival twice already and taped the "Austin City Limits" TV show in May 2021. The albums "Harmony House" and "People In Motion" came out to critical acclaim in 2021 and 2022, respectively.

Dayglow toured North America last year, ending the run with two homecoming shows at Stubb's last month. Struble and his band are set to tour Europe starting in February.
