It wasn’t until AUGUST 08 was in his late teenage years that he discovered music. His home, he said, was often quiet. It was after listening to Dwele’s “Open Your Eyes,” AUGUST 08 said his perspective changed and that led him to teach himself piano through YouTube, pick up the drums, and take jazz courses. And it was after quitting his day job at the post office that AUGUST 08 made music his career. He started as a writer and producer for others, which catapulted him to writing chart topping hits. His most recent credits include Sabrina Claudio’s “Orion’s Belt,” Wale’s “Fashion Week” feat. G-Eazy, and DJ Khaled’s “I’m The One.” AUGUST 08’s wide array of influences is varied and impressive, which includes Phil Collins, Stevie Wonder, Kid Cudi, Jojo Mayer and James Fauntleroy. Aspiring to make classic records and leave a positive impact on the world, AUGUST 08 has now turned his attention to his own art and is preparing for the release of Father, which will be put out via 88rising and Red Bull Records.
