Born in Los Angeles, California, Joe August was thrown into the world of film & music at a very young age.
Mentored by Grammy Award Winning artist Raphael Saadiq, Joe was raised on roots Rock and Roll and RnB. Through the Grammy Foundation, Joe honed his songwriting skills and worked directly with industry professionals to develop his sound and ability. Joe decided to continue his studies of music, and came to Seattle Pacific University to study Music Therapy. This was inspired by a desire to use music to help others, after many years spent playing guitar and piano for his grandmother in a nursing home.
Since 2013, Joe August has played in venues all-across Seattle and Los Angeles, recorded and released 2 EPs, 4 music videos, and is currently in the studio working on a full length album.
