Scott August

Native American flute player Scott August was born in Los Angeles, CA, and raised in Fullerton, CA. He was the son, grandson, and great-grandson of musicians. He took up the cello at age seven, later learning to play the kalimba and the piano. He graduated from the University of Southern California with a Bachelor of Music degree. He began making his own recordings while in college, at first distributing them as cassettes and then pressing up an LP, and his music received airplay on such radio stations as KCRW and KXLU in Los Angeles and WNYC in New York. At the suggestion of Brian Eno, who found his music visual, August auditioned for ad agencies, and his work began to be heard in commercials as well as on television and in films.



In 1996, August discovered Native American flute music, and he acquired his first flute in 1998. On his Cedar Mesa Music label, he released the albums Distant Spirits (2001), Sacred Dreams (2003; winner of a Native American Music Award), and New Fire (2005; winner of the Indian Summer Music Award), as well as a DVD, Ancient Light (2007), in which excerpts from his CDs (and one new track) accompanied 450 photographs he had taken in the American Southwest. He released his fourth album, Lost Canyons, on January 29, 2008. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

I met Scott August at a Native American shop in the Galleria Tyler Mall about 7 years ago. I was so star struck. His talents are wonderful. I wanted to stay and listen to him all day. But alas I had to pick up my daughter from school. I SO wish I could have stayed.

Soothes my troubled soul. Found myself dancing like a Native American at 3am with the flu too! I then went back to sleep, very peacefully. ;-)

If you feel the need to label someone, then anyone born in the US is a Native American. We have to end racist thoughts in ourselves before we can end racism entirely. This is just beautiful music. Just enjoy. Just saying...

Dont READ THIS BECAUSE IT ACTUALLY WORKS. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post that you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. Put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes... when done press f6 and your lovers name will come up on the screen in BIG WORDS. THIS IS ALSO SCARY BECAUSE IT ACTUALLY WORKS.

Memories of the past flash back like winter blossoms falling down a cold luminous road,

The trees become faces of the unknown,

The wind acts calmly reducing the body to rubble,

Your soul runs free to roam mother earth in layers of never ending motion of love and peace.

Live,smile,l a u g h . m a y peace be with you.

Hmmm...nice stuff. I wonder if he's done any performing with actual Natives. Hopefully yes. I'd hate the idea of a fellow white person committing cultural theft, otherwise. Just sayin'...

I love his mastery of the Native American Flute. Who crafted the flutes that Scott plays?

Thrilled to have discovered Native American ancestry just a few years ago. I am part Cherokee, and now I know why Native American music has so resonated with my soul. It completes me--no other way to describe it. One of my goals is to learn to play the Native America flute.

Very soothing and deep. I love that it actually makes you think you're there meditating on a mesa overlooking a canyon. I really enjoyed this album very much.

Meditative!! Very nice.
