The View From August first started performing songs together while doing charity work in Boliva. Sitting on logs around a camp-fire space or in a shared room B&B working on various cover songs.
After working for 2 charities across the country, almost 3 months later they met again and Stephen approached Pete with the idea of working on a song he had started to write and they sat down together one night. About 2 hours later...
This Paper Heart was written and was to be released as the duo's debut single in October 2015.
Following the success of This Paper Heart with regular radio play in Scotland and a feature on The Best of British Unsigned Music, 2016 brought the opportunity to showcase their original and unique cover versions. Whether festival
slots or supporting excellent acts across some of the UK’s best music venues, The View From August always aim to energetically entertain.
