Hailing from Toronto, Augusta, is a 7-piece Alternative Rock band, described by CBC’s Errol Nazarteth as “sparking ferocious dance parties wherever they go.” Formed in 2022, Augusta, is led by Joe Dent (former band leader of A Fellow Ship), August Jones (Toronto session musician and touring member of The Reklaws, the Pick Brothers band and more), and Zach Stuckey (Toronto session musician and touring member of Anna Sofia, Dani Doucette, and more). They have swiftly caught the attention of the Canadian music scene with a headlining show at Toronto’s prestigious Lee’s Palace, a performance at Kingston’s renown YGK Craft Beer Fest, and tour dates throughout Ontario and Quebec.
Since 2013, Joe’s previous project, A Fellow Ship, has been exceptionally active in the Canadian music scene. This was highlighted with the release of several EP’s, earning him radio play across Canada, as well as a consistent string of Canadian tours. This includes performances at festivals and conferences such as The Beaches International Jazz Festival, Canadian Music Week, NXNE, POP Montreal, Westport Music Festival, Wind and Waves Eco Festival, River Rock Festival, Balls Falls Music Festival, as well as a performance on the Global Morning Show. The live music hiatus caused by the pandemic gave Augusta the opportunity to refine their sound and evolve into Toronto’s newest Rock and Roll powerhouse.
They recently celebrated the release of their debut single, “Little Birds.” Since its release, it has been featured on music blogs and Spotify playlists on five continents. It has also been made official Sportsnet music and is being featured weekly on Sportsnet’s Hockey Night in Canada broadcasts. Augusta is hard at work on their debut EP with their second single being released on January 13th.
