“I love the journey and the seasons we go through in life. I felt like this release needed to be called Seasons because of where I am in my career, newly stepping out as an indepedent artist and excited to get this music out into the world,” shares the three-time GMA Dove Award winner (Male Vocalist, New Artist, Pop Album of the Year).
August continues, “I’m in a different season now since my last release. I’ve gotten married, I’ve grown in my faith, and now I’m releasing music on my own for the first time in 10 years. I’ve worked hard to pour myself into all elements of it from the writing to producing…and it’s finally time to share with everyone. It’s my hope that these songs will encourage, inspire, and challenge people in the season of life they’re walking through now.”
Accolades are already coming in about Seasons. NewReleaseToday.com, who has also named August Artist of the Month for June, states “Seasons delivers an incredibly fresh and vibrant set of tracks that are full of celebratory, real-life truth of God’s always present consistency, all from a familiar voice that has been deeply missed in Christian music. It’s good to have Chris August back!”
