FESTIVAL OF MUSIC 2020
August River Band
A three piece alternative folk outfit that’ll punch you right in the gut. Tightly arranged odd time signatures dissolve into soaring choruses which unapologetically push the boundaries of the genre, whilst maintaining a soulful beckoning of the dark and the beautiful. Like crying whilst dancing.
August River Band offers a wild and beautifully juxtaposed chemistry between the tortured singer songwriter, the classically trained violinist and the hard hitting rock and roll drummer. Major influences range from The Police, Dave Matthews, Midnight Oil, Edward Elgar, Foo Fighters and Radiohead.
August River Band hitting the studio again in July 2019 with a single release following in August. They are aiming to set fire to festival stages around Australia and the world for a long time to come.
