"A Unique Sound"

“Musically, the songs sound really, really good. The vocals are incredible and combined you guys sound awesome!! You girls are unique and have a great sound-your fresh and new and different which is what the industry thrives on.” - Danie Cortese Entertainment Inc. Ontario Canada


"Niagara University N.Y. USA"

“August put on an amazing show! They really know how to play to the crowd. We bring in over 30 bands to Niagara U. per year and August definitely rates as one of the top bands we've had this year! We can't wait to have them back.”
- Fred Heuer - Marketing


"August All Over"

In 1989, Mermaid Cafe, a little local project, played every Wednesday night at the Cabana Room. The ourfit included the girl we now know as potty-mouthed Peaches along wiht another girl by the name of Andi D. The latter is a local singer/songwriter who is now part of a twangy acoustic duo called "august", with Hamilton rocker Jen Benton. They're playing all over the place this weekend, starting with an opening slot for the Pete Webb show at the Grasshopper tomorrow night, followed by a set on the CNE MIdway Stage at 4 p. m. on Saturday. Monday night they play the Indie Music Awards acoustic showcase at Healey's, where they'll compete for best acoustic act. "This particular show will be really stripped down," says Andi D. "There'll be no electric guitar or bass, just the uprifht bass. And wait 'til you see a hot chick playing the upright. It's just so cool to see live." - The Toronto Sun - Sherri Wood


"Indie Music Week 2005 - Nashville"

"Aside from being the group that traveled the farthest to be at Indie Music Week, August has to be one of the hardest working bands we've ever met. These girls have the talent desire and drive that are the essence of the spirit of Indie Music Week and all successful people in the music industry." - DaCapo Music


"HessVillage.com"

"a very talented young band out of Toronto, august have a driving and edgy sound thats also harmonic and unique." - Jhamie


"All Music Project"

If there is band that has the right name that is AUGUST. They are inspiring and each and everyone can just admire them. Andi D and Jen Benton are two super musicians in a rise, who are combining and fulfilling each other the way, we can just dream about it. Both of them have style, great performance, talent for music and perfection in their voice.
- Suzi B.

Bio

“Have you ever been filled with so much desire that to stray from the very passion which drives your soul would be greater then that of life itself? To know without infinite doubt that destiny must follow through and your calling deemed worthy of all that love has to offer has been named? To believe implicitly that the universe has intended a path that without rhyme or reason you must claim and trust that all will be so? No amount of time or set backs can take revenge on such pure a journey or determined a soul.”

This is the journey and soul of Andi D. singer songwriter. Born and raised in Toronto Canada, Andi D has been writing, recording and performing since 1989. She is a seasoned artist who has worked with such great Canadian talent as Merrill Nisker (Peaches), Jen Benton (The Cliks) and Darius Szczepaniak (Producer/Engineer – Bare Nakeded Ladies, Big Sugar, Jan Arden, Sicboy….) to name a few. In 1991 she was nominated as a top 50 finalist in the Toronto Q-107 songwriting contest for her song “Back of a Cadillac” and was awarded “best new country artist” with her acoustic duo august (Andi D and Jen Benton) at the 2006 Toronto Indie Music Awards.
