Somewhere near where the California sun and the Portland rain meet you will hear the sounds of Last August. Fuzzy, energetic groove oriented pop with haunting melodies, soaring harmonies and modern textures.
Last August is a duo formed by Jackson Jackson and Kim Krenik. Both are producers, writers, multi-musicians, & vocalists who enjoy the process of creating music in support of a director's vision.
KimMarie Krenik‘s musical journey has taken her around the globe, across swinging bridges in remote villages in Thailand, into public squares throughout Europe and Great Britain, and even down Main Street, USA with her friends Mickey and Minny. Kim Marie Krenik (a.k.a. Kimberly Knox) has appeared as a television actress (Beverly Hills 90210, The Drew Carey Show, Lois and Clark) and has had moments of stage bliss playing many roles, including Abigail Williams in "The Crucible," Mary Magdelene in "Jesus Christ Superstar" and Anne in "A Little Night Music."
Kim’s passion is to create music that is a beacon of hope and healing. Writing music to encourage herself and others in their faith journey has been her life long passion, and she continues to serve her church community as a worshiper and songwriter. A few years ago, Kim began writing for the film, tv and ad world. Collaborating with other writers has been a transforming experience for her, and learning to write new styles and choose universal lyrics has caused her to step outside of her own mind to better empathize with others' experiences and stories. Her faith in the power of God's immense and transcending love grows all the more strong through the process of collaborating with others.
Kim is an author of a Women’s Devotional, as well as a tween fantasy book series (coming out 2021). If you want to hear more about Kim’s faith journey, you can read her book, Fire Lilies - Out of the Ashes, (women's devotional and scripture study) available on Amazon.
“Kim Krenik's 'The Lion' roars. Her powerful vocals soar and wail and twist your insides around, leaving you wanting and craving more. "Call Me Crazy" is fun, energetic and romantic. John Pisciotta produced an amazing project!” - CD BABY REVIEWER

Kilanin is a musical trio formed by Colin Robinson (Blue Man Group), Carolan Deacon, and Kim Krenik and has been described as a sonic rush of powerful, sensuous female vocals soaring over juicy, beat-driven musical landscapes. The three artists have a passion for creating dynamic songs that evoke strong emotion and they enjoy experimenting with voices, effects, and rhythms.
Originally from Huntsville Ontario, Colin Robinson is a full time drummer with Blue Man Group in Orlando, Florida. He has been playing since he was 14 years old, and professionally since about 18 years of age. His first instrument was actually guitar, and later took piano lessons, but drumming is what he pursued professionally. He studied music in Toronto, at Humber College, graduating with honors. He has studied music production, and writes and produces music from his home studio. He works with many talented co-writers, and is working diligently on music for licensing on all media platforms.
Carolan Deacon is a grateful award winning vocalist and writer. As a performer, she’s been fortunate to have shared the stage with artists such as Martina McBride, Aaron Tippin, Amy Steinberg and other international artists. She lives for a great sound and when she isn't making music, she can be found watching Harry Potter movies for the 100th time with her little girl.
Born and raised in the San Francisco East Bay Area, Kim started singing and acting as a child. She made up songs and entertained anyone who would listen. That was back in the 1900’s. Today, phones look and act different. Hotels have robots. But Kim is still making up songs and sharing them with anyone who will listen. She writes, sings, plays keyboards, and produces music in her home studio.
