August uses his complex background from jazz and song tradition when he writes music. The lyrics he writes are inspired by everyday life and the people in his life. He has been compared to Paul Simon by several music critics, and he makes no secret of the fact that Simon is one of his great role models, like Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen and Bon Iver. The music is song-based, but is expanded with improvisation and play.
