Eli August

Eli August describes his sound as “Dark Americana. . . devoted to romantics and those who reflect upon their days with a certain longing for the past.”

He performs solo or with a backup group called The Abandoned Buildings. He also plays guitar for Fermata, a Baltimore-area “acoustic chamber rock” ensemble.

August has performed at the Watch City Steampunk Festival and other events.
