Her name is Augusta, but you can call her “Gus”. Growing up in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on a solid diet of eclectic music acts such as Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and Shania Twain, shaped her unique country-rock sound. This sound, accompanying her incredible vocal talent, honest/soulful/hand-crafted songs mixed with an energetic, engaging stage presence, has made her the darling of the stage everywhere she goes.
This up-and-coming star has already left her mark on the country scene, winning the North American Country Music Association International’s (NACMAI) “New Country Female Vocalist of the Year” award (2016), the NACMAI “New Country CD of the Year” award (2016), “New Country Songwriter of the Year” award (2016/2017), “Traditional Country Songwriter of the Year” award (2016/2017), “Female Entertainer of the Year” and was one of the Top-7 featured artists in ole Majorly Indie’s “On The Spot” Canadian Country Music competition in 2015, held in Halifax, Nova Scotia during CCMA week.
