Bio

Finnigan August is based in Torquay on Victoria’s Surf Coast, where you will rarely see him walking around without his guitar.

At only 13 years old, he is already comfortable on stage with his festival appearances including, The Lost Lands, Queenscliff, Happy Wanderer Festival, Sea Shepherd Annual Fundraiser and Bendigo Blues & Roots Festival as well as supporting local heroes such as Didirri, Ruby Fields, Ash Grunwald and Daniel Champagne.

With a love for writing, his sound incorporates the depth of folk, melody of the blues and carries some of the exciting complexities of jazz.

No one can deny his hard work ethic as Finnigan’s first instrumental album was funded purely with his own busking money and since releasing it, is excited to be back in the studio recording new material - this time showcasing his vocal ability.

We will be seeing the first single released from this in the first half of 2020. With a scary amount of talent for his age, this is an artist to keep a close eye on.

A harmonica and a one-man-band, all the elements roots listeners froth over.
