Artists biography

Growing up in Suffolk, England, Aaron began playing the piano at the age of 7, and in his teens, he fell in love with Britpop, began playing the guitar, joined a band and began writing songs. His influences were classic left-of-center singer/songwriter; Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and later, Damien Rice. “I’ve always been into the lyrical and the gutsy, the artists who aren’t afraid to be deep,” he says.

Aaron’s performances have taken him from his small town upbringings in the British countryside to the bright lights of London and more recently, NYC. He has shared the stage with local and international artists including Belinda Carlisle and Tommy Emmanuel. When he is not touring you can find him performing in Manhattan most nights at clubs and restaurants (see the SHOWS page for more information). He is also a respected music educator and has taught all levels from early education to college level and everything in-between. He currently teaches for the NY Presbyterian Hospital and ‘Music Together programs.

His own songs from his debut album ‘Ten Songs About Truth, Lies & Other Things’ (produced by Ian Grimble – Elton John/Cat Stevens) have been featured on national television and radio in the UK as well as the Movie ‘Tomorrow Is Today’ in the USA.

More recently he has performed in Nashville with award-winning Top 40 radio artist D.A. Cole and with Bangladeshi artist ‘Muza’ on his track ‘Bondhurey’ which reached 3 million views in just 3 weeks!

He is currently working on his new album which he hopes to release in 2019.
