Five Times August

Five Times August is the group name for singer/songwriter Brad Skistimas (born in Lewisville, TX, August 5, 1983). He uses the name Five Times August because he considers his real name too difficult to spell and remember; the name plays off his birthday. Skistimas built up a following largely through extensive self-promotion on the Internet. After an MTV producer discovered his song "Better with You" on CD Baby and used it on the show Laguna Beach, Skistimas recorded a full-length album, Fry Street, which he self-released as a digital download in 2005, and he was able to place every song on a program on a national TV channel, including MTV, Oxygen, Lifetime, CW, and Fox Reality. In 2007, an expanded version of the album, retitled The Independent, became the first disc by an unsigned artist to go on sale at Wal-Mart. Skistimas also tours extensively, booking his shows himself. In 2007, he was on the road for eight months and performed in 43 states. He self-released his second album, Brighter Side, on March 18, 2008. On Life as a Song, released October 20, 2009, Skistimas re-recorded songs from his first two albums. ~ William Ruhlmann

I had the pleasure of seeing him in person last night in Arnold, MD. The sound he produced with his electrified acoustic guitar was AWESOME! His songs are relatable whether your 16 or 60-life, love, and relationship s . I'm glad my daughter introduced his music to me. He & his new wife are very gracious young people.

a truly self-made musician that should be viewed as an example to all other independent artists. i've been a fan for over two years now, and i haven't one bad thing to say about him musically and personally.

He played at a friend of mine's college and she loved him.
I listened to her CD and had to get my own.
Very happy and sweet songs.
