Born in Houston but raised on the Caribbean island of St. Croix, August Keys is a songwriter and rapper with an ultra smooth melodic singing voice.  With a deft mix of Hip-Hop storytelling, radio friendly hooks, and forward thinking production, his music is an effortless fusion of genres, equally inspired by Jazz, Funk, R&B, and Neo-Soul. Coming from a musical family, Keys’ interest in music started at an early age.  He credits his grandfather, a Julliard educated jazz musician, for instilling in him a sense of passion and discipline.  Moving between St. Croix and Houston, Keys was exposed to a variety of cultures and styles that would later become integral to his songwriting.  But the constant moving around and lack of stability made a career in music seem impossible, leading Keys to go long periods of time without creating anything. After a long period of inaction, Keys gradually rediscovered his love of music, this time for good.  Despite occasional turmoil in his personal life, he began performing in local talent shows, where he discovered himself to be a naturally charismatic performer.  Encouraged by his success, he began writing his own songs for the first time, expressing his inner most thoughts and feelings.  Pairing this with his growing ability as an instrumentalist and producer, he uploaded a few tracks onto Soundcloud, not knowing what to expect.  Within just a few months he found he had racked up over 30,000 streams.  Greenlight is a piano led throwback to classic nineties Hip-Hop, featuring an uplifting lead vocal.  His top track ‘Indie’ matches a nostalgic soul beat with August’s MJ inspired rap-singing.  The music video for ‘Indie’ will be officially released in April 2019. As an artist, Key’s states his goal is to use the talents he was blessed with to bring joy to others, and be a beacon of inspiration for young artists in Houston.  Summing up his motivation, he says “I want to put myself in a position where I can place the 713 on my back.  When I eat, all the fam eats.”
