With a lead vocalist who has been described as “Tammy Wynette meets Tina Turner twang soul vocals,” the august is a band that defies easy categorization, but doesn’t lack for ardent supporters. In 2013 the rock-indie country-Americana act won $10,000 in the Big Gig at the country’s largest outdoor music festival (Milwaukee’s Summerfest).
This recognition came after their $5,000 win of Greenbriar's Got Country Class, a gig that landed them the opening slot for Toby Keith and Lionel Richie. The August has shared the stage with a variety of other great musicians, including Leon Russell and The Drive-By Truckers. The loyal fans bought 2,500 of their third CD, Dear Chicago Love Nashville, and follow them on social media, as well as on tour in the Midwest and Southeast. Founded in Chicago in 2006, the bands sound has matured and developed since their 2009 move Nashville, including a more sophisticated songwriting ability.
the august is: Jacky Dustin - vocals and acoustic guitars, Wojtek Krupka - bass and background vocals, Cameron Clarke - electric guitars, and Tim Good - drums.
