The Four-Eleven: August Donnelly is an Artist and Philosopher from London, Ontario – Equidistant between Detroit and Toronto. Born the 25th of August, an affinity for elements of Blues, Classical and Hip-Hop music inspired this Artist from an early age. Although he may be considered an emblematic academic, August became a proficient musician at a young age through self-instruction. From early adulthood, resolute and sometimes problematic ambition allowed for ample luxuries and diversions. August spent years immersing himself in euphonious and literary works - A great deal being of an esoteric nature. Authors such as Morley Callaghan, Kurt Vonnegut Jr. and the satirical writings of Voltaire greatly influenced him, while a musical predilection ranging from A Tribe Called Quest to Beethoven yield his distinctive style both in live and recorded performance.
