Local folk-soul band Augustus bursts on to the scene

Local folk-soul band Augustus bursts on to the scene

Boulder CO band Augustus continues their momentum this spring with a unique sound and captivating live shows. Gigging weekly at some of Boulder’s favorite watering holes for the past few months, Augustus is looking towards the future and has their sight set on becoming a force to be reckoned with.

Formed in late 2013, Augustus has been honing their live performances in Boulder and has been winning audience members over one-by-one. Their debut video “North” , which has been called “heavy, raw and bluesy” by booking manager and local musician Dechen Hawk, was recently screened during their video release party at Johnny’s Cigar bar and has been passed around Facebook by friends and fans alike.

Teaming up with bands like local indie doo-wop band Whiskey Autumn for shows in the Boulder and Denver areas, Augustus is looking to spread their unique sound to new fans and spread the word of the Boulder music scene. Augustus hosts a monthly event at Amante coffee in downtown Boulder called The Lab which features local singer/songwriter Pete Laffin and a rotating featured musician.

Augustus will be teaming up with In the Shed Media to film a segment called Under the Marquee which will air in the coming month. Additionally, they will be entering the studio this summer to record their much anticipated debut EP and will be gigging extensively to promote it.

You can catch up with Augustus at any of their upcoming live shows and follow them online. Augustus is available for questions and interviews about their music.
