the august / Bio
The august are clearing their own path of music that runs between American roots and American pop music. Determined in their approach to define a strong musical identity, the august put on a charging live show that is reminiscent of 70s era country rock infused with the pop sensibilities of today.
Led by the soulful vocals of Jacky Dustin, drummer Tim Good and bassist/guitarist Wojtek Krupka, these three strong willed musicians desire to leave an indelible mark on each listener they come across.
It is their collection of musical personalities that renders itself into their identity as the august: Jacky’s sweet-tooth for Mariah coupled with a fascination of Janis Joplin, Wojtek’s affection for all things quirky and anything Neil Young, (besides that Tron album), and Tim’s quest within himself to find the backbeat of ‘The Big Pink.’
Yet, all three members share a relentless and uncompromising love of music and the music they play together. It is indicative in their uprooting from hometown Chicago to Nashville where they made the leap to further focus on a life of music, away from the comforts of friends and family.
Their diligence proved successful and the band found their work to be more sophisticated in arrangement and much leaner lyrically without sacrificing content. They also embraced their ranging musical choices as a creation of their own sound. As a result, established industry songwriters and producers took notice, becoming believers of a group that display a resilience and passion behind their music.
Now well-endowed with stronger songs, swagger and a confidence in what is different may not be so bad, the august believe it’s time to present their sound, once again, to those willing to listen.
the august is a band to watch and a band to follow.
