August is best described as a bowl of folk-flavored fruit-on-the-bottom yogurt. A lot of people don't like fruit-on-the-bottom, but that's because they put it in their mouths instead of their ears. We think you'll enjoy tender morsels of bluegrass, jazz, Kraütrock and even regular rock, all suspended in a smooth folksy paste. Each band member offers a different set of music-making ingredients. Louis Weeks brings a meticulous attention to crafting meaningful lyrics and memorable melodies. Ben Goldstein is obsessed with keeping things tight and danceable, in case he ever learns how to dance. Gabe Donnay sprinkles in flavorful ear candy with whatever instrument is closest. David Summers is really chill, and knows how to say the words "Jelly Baby" in a funny voice. August was formed in 2005 in Baltimore, Maryland while the musicians were still impressionable young high school students. Although the pursuit of knowledge has since scattered the band members across the East Coast at various fine learning institutions, August continues to write, record and perform on a regular basis. In 2007, August released it's first full-length album. The Migration, the cherished product of a bleary-eyed, marathon three-week recording session, is available now at CDbaby.com. Check it out!
