Bio

West Australian singer / songwriter / rapper, Vic August is the kind of artist that has been engulfed in creativity his entire life. Based in Perth, then making his way around the country, the 16 year old started writing at the age of 7 and started to rap by the age of 12 - recording his very first single at the age of 14. At the time, rapping was a way of communication but was never considered a way of life until August learnt of the passing of one of his friends at the age of 14. Realising how fast life can change and how unpredictable the future is, Vic August decided to put all of his attention into music as a form of expression, ultimately finding that his writing and creativity was a gift, exposed by tragedy.

In 2017, Vic August released his first single of the year with “If There’s Someone Above Us”, receiving online notoriety and peaking at number #3 in the RnBass Indie Chart. Quickly following up with his most recognisable single “Accolade” released in September 2017.

2018 has seen Vic August participate in the WVS Next Gen 2018 showcase in Melbourne, and with a range of shows and more music to be released. Vic August is the gift that keeps on giving.

First listen I was like, alright, this is okay. Second listen and I'm flipping out. Ridiculously big vibe right here. How the eff are you 16?

You're nailed most of the melodic trap flows on this track. Real smooth sound that's sending through some pretty heavy Travis Scott vibes. Loads of potential here!

Bak Beat has given you a pretty tasty beat to work with here and those piano parts are gorge. You're finding your feat on the vocal side too, a nice mix of tones here
