People in Asheville, NC pride themselves on keeping things "local" and "organic." Aaron is as local and organic to the area as you get. Born and raised in the 828 before it was the 828 (used to be the 704), Aaron grew up in a middle class family with the bohemian tendencies of Italian grandparents infused with the charm of Southern hospitality.
The music is just an outlet to try and make sense of his melting pot hometown. Drawing on influences from Springsteen to Steely Dan to Prince to Johnny Cash, Aaron's blend of Soul, Rock, and Pop is scarred by inner city struggles and soothed by down-home mountain life. He's been playing professionally since age 17 and over the last 17 years has performed over 2,500 gigs from New York to the British Virgin Islands.
