Anyone who has seen one of August Fields’ high energy shows will know that what they bring to the stage is crowd-engaging power pop tunes with foundations in punk, rock and gospel. For those not lucky enough to see August Fields in the flesh, their debut singles, 2 Into 1 and Back To You, have just been released. There will be further releases in the coming months and for live shows, details of tour dates for spring and summer will be on social media.
The Band’s beginnings
Although not conceived in a field, and not any time in August, August Fields consists of five members from very different parts of the world, each being able to call on their unique cultural and musical experience. With all five members being song writers, each member brings individual ideas and songs to the band, with the band as a whole adding its twist and tone to it.
Zoe - Lead Vocals
With her roots in gospel, this South African powerhouse has a voice that leaves audiences gasping and keeps the boys of the band in line.
Colin - Lead Guitar / Backing Vocals
Forged in the highlands of Scotland, Colin was formerly guitarist, vocalist and song writer for well-known Scottish indie act, Dead Sea Souls. Colin brings a unique style of lead playing which is a force to be reckoned with.
Andy - Rhythm Guitar / Backing Vocals
After spending years behind his guitar on the small English Channel island of Jersey, Andy brings to the band his passion and talent for song writing, and his skill as a guitarist which makes his playing seem effortless.
Will - Bass / Backing Vocals
The only guy in the band without facial hair, despite living in Canada (where we thought plaid shirts and beards were a must), Will makes up for this lack of overt display of his masculinity by his sheer talent on his bass, with the kind of groove that Herbie Hancock would want in a player.
Oscar - Drums
Holding down the beat is Oscar, the only Canterbury-born member of the band, who spent time in Switzerland, training with the world-renowned Top Secret Drum Corps. His approach to drums is very rudiment-driven, yet still has room to breathe and groove.
