Growing up in a family where artistic expression was commonplace, August Wilhelmsson started learning piano at age five with music production alongside that, following in the footsteps of his older brother and father.
It wasn’t long before the Swedish producer was making music of his own.
“My dad did his own music and had the equipment, and then I did something entirely different with that same equipment.”
When younger August always went on walks and out in the woods because he lived near them. “When I was doing music, I’d do exactly what was needed because I heard something else when I went out. In that sense, Gothenburg has been very influential in my music because I’ve always been in those surroundings.”
At the age of eighteen, August started doing music for television, movies, commercials among others. After success in that field, the hunger came for me August to create something he could call his own, something he could share with the world.
Inspired by film scores and immersing himself in nature in his native Gothenburg, the 26-year-old’s musical language possesses beautiful, ethereal ambience. The foundation of the music is strings, mixed with August’s own chilled, electronic moods. Wilhelmsson’s output is currently attracting over 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify, so others are finding peace in his music too.
