The G-Man presents...August Wells

Ken Griffin of Rollerskate Skinny acclaim and New York pianist John Rauchenberger bring their August Wells collaboration to Cork for the very first time.

**************************************************************************************
August Wells
August Wells' is Ken Griffin (the creative mind behind the groups, Rollerskate Skinny, Kid Silver and Favourite Sons) and John Rauchenberger (New York pianist who has played with The Favourite Sons, Maggie Estep and Daniel Carter among others). Their music has just begun to make its mark, but already has been described as “strange other worldly chamber music”, “Sinatra singing Lou Reed songs” and “a secret marriage of Willy Nelson and Lee Hazlewood”. It could also be described as songs to walk across your troubled heart...

Based in New York, August Wells arrived in Dingle in December 2014 to record some tracks for RTE’s ‘Other Voices’. Ken Griffin’s deep and smoky tones on 'Here in the Wild' bear comparisons with other great Irish vocalists like Cathal Coughlan, while August Wells’ music is definitely for those who enjoy their music tinged with melancholy and moving, mature sentiments.
“Don’t you find it all such a bore,
People like us don’t exist anymore,
We're invisible now,
Sweet heart we're free.
Here in the wild.”


Media:
What others say:
"One of the most underrated Irish musicians"
Drowned In Sound (on Ken Griffin)

"There’s an introspection and weariness to ‘Here in The Wild’ that speak of the beauty of hand crafted songwriting at its best.”
The Last Mixed Tape

Really excited about this one. Tune into RTÉ on Friday to see August Wells performing on Other Voices to see exactly why so.
