In a recent episode of the Fox TV drama Bones, a character made a mix of “the five greatest break-up songs”
and gave it to a heart-broken colleague. The mix featured songs from alternative pop stars Sia, Mazzy Star, José González, Antony and the Johnsons…and an unsigned artist by the name of Aaron English.
Nashville-based singer-songwriter/pianist Aaron English’s soul-searching songs are sophisticated, cinematic…and filled with echoes of his travels through Africa and the Middle East. His four self-released albums have drawn comparisons to Peter Gabriel, James Blunt, David Gray, Sting, Robert Plant and Paul Simon.
A Top 5 radio hit in Italy, Top 20 radio hit in the U.S., being named a Keyboard Magazine “Artist to Watch” and the feature on “Bones” are just a few of English’s notable achievements. His music has also been heard on CBS, NBC, Bravo and TBS, as well as in ads for Google, Chevrolet, Motorola, Patagonia, Kaiser Permanente, Price Waterhouse Cooper and Kraft Foods.
In 2015, Aaron spent two months in East Africa, where he founded the International Youth Music Project, a charity that supports youth music programs at orphanages, refugee camps and HIV/AIDS+ community centers.
Previously a full-time touring artist, Aaron returned to Nashville from a pandemic-shortened European tour in March 2020 and has refocused his energies into weekly livestream concerts, as well as long-distance song and video collaborations with musicians around the world.
“One of the most talented piano men I have ever encountered and one of America's finest songwriters...English may prove to be the most relevant songwriter of the year. Pure contemplative genius.”
“A unique and brilliantly creative songwriter…Aaron English [has] wandered the globe’s highways and back roads encountering, absorbing, evolving and cross-pollinating everything he encounters in his journey.”
“A talented new artist in a class with other stylistically challenging singer-songwriters such as Peter Gabriel, Joseph Arthur, and Perry Blake…potent lyricism, eloquence, and beautiful sublime melodies that reach much deeper than simple pop songs.”
