Together, this small team has created a soulful, yet delicate project that maintains August’s heart melting voice as the focal point.

The tape will be available on all streaming sites by next week but for now be sure to hit play on 6th Floor below and give Sydny August a follow on Soundcloud and Twitter to keep up with one of Chicago’s most promising singers!
