NASHVILLE, TN – (September 7, 2011) – Fervent Records’ multi-award winning artist, Chris August has always loved spending his few days of summer vacation at home surrounded by friends. But, this summer he joined K-LOVE in honoring special families by filling his days off with intimate performances at their homes as part of his first “Living Room” tour. K-LOVE listeners had the unique opportunity to win one of only five intimate concerts for a local family in need or a family with a unique story, spreading the neighborhood ministry. Traveling nationwide the week of 8/22, August lent his talents to celebrate with and encourage communities in Indianapolis, Kansas City, Oklahoma City, Phoenix and Denver. The performance in Oklahoma City was not the typical family living room as the show was held at Fort Sill army base with about 30 soldiers and their families. The highlight of the day was when K-LOVE winner Bruce Chim presented August with personalized army fatigues and a plaque to commemorate his performance. The concert crowds ranged in size from an intimate group of 20 to a full on block party with over 350 neighbors gathered around to see August’s live performance featuring his smash hits “Starry Night” and “7x70” as well as his current single “Battle.” These fan-favorite tunes are from his award-winning debut album No Far Away co-produced by August and Ed Cash and available everywhere now.

“It was an amazing experience,” Chris August stated, “I can't say enough about how much it blessed me to be a part of these peoples lives.”

August will be playing a whole different string of venues this Fall as he opens for David Crowder*Band on their upcoming nationwide 33-city farewell tour, “The 7 Tour.” The tour kicks off on 9/28 in Austin, TX and will wrap on 11/13 in Jackson, MS.

Fervent Records’ Chris August is quickly becoming a favorite in the CCM genre. With an impressive sweep at the 42nd Annual Dove Awards, he earned awards for “New Artist of the Year” and “Male Vocalist of the Year,” adding him to an elite group of only three artists in the history of the show who have received both awards. He also claimed the nod for “Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year” for his debut album No Far Away that he co-produced with acclaimed producer Ed Cash. The album delivered August’s debut single “Starry Night,” which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Christian/AC chart in September and stayed put for six weeks as well as the hit follow-up single “7x70,” launching this self-taught pianist, guitarist, and producer as an artist in his own right. Featuring a resonant collection of soulful pop-rock sing-alongs, touching balladry, and heart-on-sleeve lyricism, No Far Away has become the best-selling New Artist project released in 2010. A native of Dallas, TX, August previously toured as the keyboard player and opening act for pop sensation Ashlee Simpson and worked with Ryan Cabrera, Brian McKnight, and Jessica Simpson before shifting his focus to a solo career.
