Aaron English, World Traveling Piano Man - May 22
World Traveling Piano Man and singer-songwriter, Aaron English, plays Whispering Pines B&B House Concert.
See Aaron earlier, at the Nebraska City Farmer's Market.
In an episode of the Fox TV drama Bones, 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 such as Sia, Mazzy Star, José González, Antony and the Johnsons…and a lone unsigned artist by the name of Aaron English.
In 2008, with two self-released albums and into their third national tour of the US, the Aaron English Band's bus was involved 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.
By the summer of 2009, however, his fans rallied to his aid and funded the recording of English's third album, “american [fever] dream”. Success came in the form of a Top 20 radio hit in U.S. for the single "Believe" and a Chevrolet ad placement for the song “Lullaby”.
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 toured as one-half of the side-project Boombox Séance with Baltimore singer-songwriter Victoria Vox. They released an eponymous album in March 2013.
Aaron is currently working on a new EP, slated for release in January 2014.
