"The songwriting and musicianship is peerless. I don't know how others perceive Aaron's voice, but I find it unique, powerful, and emotively charged."
- Dave Burlovich, IndieSoundz.com
"There are few people anywhere . . . with a strong and unique voice like (Aaron's)."
- Trista Groulx, SonicOttawa.com
Aaron Saloman is a rare find in indpendent music - a young artist with a unique, immediately identifiable "sound". It seems very easy to describe most new music we hear today, whether independent or mainstream, by simply mentioning the name of another band. While Aaron makes no secret of his influences, they combine to make a sonic signature all his own.
Perhaps this sonic maturity is a result of his experience. Whether performing for 20 000 people during the Canada Day concert in Kanata, ON
, two sold out nights for the acoustic Jeff Buckley birthday tribute in Chicago, IL
, or a small rock show at Harper's Ferry in Boston, MA
, one thing ties together Aaron's hundreds of shows . . . they leave people abuzz with the thrill of hearing something new. Equally comfortable alone with an acoustic guitar or backed up by some of the most in-demand rhythm sections in North America, Aaron has shared bills with popular acts such as Anet
, Kim Mitchell
, Terry Tufts
, The Watchmen
, Sass Jordan
, See Spot Run
, The Headstones
, Tyler Kealey
, and others. Aaron has also performed on the nationally televised talk show Jonovision
, been featured in numerous print, television, and radio media, and was voted "Best Male Vocalist" from more than 10 000 songs at Garageband.com
Aaron has released two EP's with his rock trio, and one solo acoutic album. "Muse's Whip", his first solo effort, was produced by Jay Ruston
(Brian Wilson, Morrissey, The Donnas, Polyphonic Spree, Ari Hest, Artificial Joy Club, Wilson Philips, etc.). "No Reason", was produced by San Diego-based Kyle Lassegard (Signature Sound Studios
). "Live & Acoustic" was an entirely self-produced effort, recorded live at a friend's house!
A graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music
, Aaron is also constantly in demand as a session player, audio technician, and producer. He has performed as a sideman for Michaela Foster Marsh
, James Blondeau
(Ottawa), Rachel Black
, Stephanie Jones (Boston), Eleanore Altman
(New York), and many others. Aaron currently resides in Montreal, Canada, where he is active performing, recording, and producing.
