Bob August was born the son of poor migrant workers on a farm in New Mexico. Bullcrap. He was actually born the son of middle-class Americans at a hospital in Newark during the turbulent ''60s. Sorry for the confusion.
His early introduction to the piano inspired Bob to write songs of his own -- pounding out tunes as early as age 4 (God help the neighbors) -- but it was at college in Boston during the folk-rock renaissance of the ''80s that August kicked his songwriting into high-gear, melding his melodic McCartney-esque influence with the acoustic sounds of the day.
Eventually he arrived back in the Big Apple, writing songs & gigging around Manhattan & North Jersey by night. By day, August could be heard on New York radio -- & occasionally seen on TV (including a cameo performing the "Lumberjack Song" at the end of Monty Python''s 20th anniversary video -- complete with ''80s hair & Roger McGuinn specs).
Most of the tracks on Firstofaugust were recorded in Nashville in the late ''90s & took almost as long to create as did the Beatles'' Sergeant Pepper -- though has yet to inspire a comparable cultural revolution. Nonetheless, people seem to enjoy it. We think you will too.
