Chris August

When
Chris
August
was
15
years
old,
he
found
his
dad’s
old
4-­‐track
tape
recorder
in
his
parents’
house
in
Garland,
TX.
That
started
Chris’
love
not
only
for
playing
and
writing
music,
but
also
for
producing
it.
For
the
next
few
years,
Chris
would
create
and
perform
music
in
and
around
the
Dallas
area.
His
initial
support
came
from
his
local
church
group
and
friends/family
who
helped
to
encourage
him
in
his
career
as
well
as
to
grow
in
his
faith.
In
his
early
20’s,
Chris
moved
to
Los
Angeles
to
work
with
Joe
Simpson
and
was
signed
to
Geffen
Records.
Although
he
built
great
relationships
and
furthered
his
musical
talents
and
abilities,
he
ultimately
found
himself
back
in
Dallas
in
his
home
studio
where
he
rededicated
his
life
to
Christ
and
wrote
“Starry
Night”.
That
rededication
to
Christ
ultimately
led
to
an
eight-­‐year
relationship
with
Fervent/Word
records
where
he
released
three
albums

No
Far
Away,
The
Upside
Of
Down,
and
The
Maker.
He’s
had
great
radio
success
along
with
the
way
with
hits
such
as
“Starry
Night”,
“Center
Of
It”,
and
“7x70”
and
“The
Maker”,
and
was
recognized
at
the
42nd
Annual
Dove
Awards
with
“New
Artist
of
the
Year”,
“Male
Vocalist
of
the
Year”,
and
“Pop
Album
of
the
Year”.
Even
still,
these
years
challenged
Chris’
ability
to
be
creative
and
inspired
while
trying
to
write
songs
that
also
fit
the
Christian
genre.
Through
this
season,
Chris
realized
he
needed
to
get
back
to
creativity
and
inspiration
without
constraints.
“I
wanted
to
get
back
to
making
music
that
moved
me
and
was
more
authentic
to
who
I
am
as
an
artist”,
Chris
says.
This
release
is
unlike
any
other
record
Chris
has
previously
released.
“I
poured
my
soul
into
every
lyric
and
every
piece
of
music.”
Not
only
did
he
write
every
song,
and
play
almost
every
instrument
heard,
but
he
also
produced
and
mixed
the
entire
project.
“I
love
the
journey
and
the
seasons
we
go
through
in
life
and
felt
like
this
release
needed
to
be
called
Seasons
because
of
where
I
am
in
my
career,
newly
stepping
out
as
an
independent
artist
and
excited
to
get
this
music
out
into
the
world.
It’s
my
hope
that
these
songs
will
encourage,
inspire,
and
challenge
people
in
the
season
of
life
they’re
walking
through
now.

Seasons
is
available
in
physical
form
on
Chris’
online
store
and
in
all
digital
formats.
