Aaron English

Seattle-based piano-man Aaron English has been steadily building a buzz in the U.S. since 2006, thanks to four  albums and twelve U.S. tours - both solo and with his seven-piece ensemble, The Aaron English Band. But in 2008, English’s third national tour ended abruptly in a catastrophic accident on a Midwestern highway. His restaurant-grease-fueled tour bus and most of his musical equipment were destroyed, and English’s touring career was temporarily grounded.

In 2009, English's fans rallied to his aid and funded the recording of his third album, american [fever] dream. The lead single, "Believe", was a Top 20 hit on the FMQB U.S. radio charts, peaking at #18.

After two years of touring this solo record, Aaron reformed The Aaron English Band with the same members and scored a Top 5 hit in Italy with an epic medley reinvention of The Beatles' and Led Zeppelin's classics "Norwegian Wood" and "Kashmir".

In 2012, Aaron formed the side-project Boombox Séance with Baltimore singer-songwriter Victoria Vox. After writing and touring together in the summer and fall of 2012, they released the album Boombox Séance (also produced by Geoff Stanfield) in March 2013.

Aaron recently returned from two music-filled months as a record producer, songwriter, performer in East Africa, where he started the International Youth Music Project, a non-profit that supports music programs at orphanages.

He is currently releasing a new single and video each month, a project that will culminate in a new album release in 2017.

In an episode of the Fox TV drama Bones last year, a character made a mix of “the six greatest break-up songs” and gave it to a heart-broken colleague. The mix featured songs from alternative-pop stars and "The Lullaby of Loneliness" a lone unsigned artist by the name of Aaron English.
