He calls himself ‘mature’ and he clearly states, “I mean age not mentality.”
There’s no denying Canadian singer/songwriter August Knight is young at heart and is not letting acquired years be a burden.
His musical journey began at the age of 10 when he received his first El Degas guitar and by 15 he began writing songs influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan, John Prine, Kris Kristofferson and Neil Young… all of which continue to influence his songwriting style to this day.
