Hi August, how are you?
I’m great, currently sitting inside of Dupars in LA.
You’re a man from the street. Where does your love for music come from and what inspired you in your childhood?
My love for music comes from family, even I wasn’t raised on it in my home. My uncle was a musician and it led to drugs so my mom wanted to keep me away from that.
What inspired me was lil kid shit Idk lol. When I was a kid, my anxiety was so high, I used to do shit to avoid feeling fucked up.
You’ve just released your second EP Happy Endings With An Asterisk. In what way is the EP different compared to your debut FATHER?
Happy Endings With An Asterisk is a continuation of my journey. They aren’t different, they work together to further the story. Like a porno series.
The new EP counts six diverse songs with very vulnerable lyrics. How important is it for you to be transparent towards your audience?
Very important! If you’re not comfortable opening up to people who want the best for you, it’s impossible to grow.
