PRESS PRAISE FOR AARON

Maybe, just maybe, a new Elton John might be just what the doctor ordered, someone who can bring a new life to the ancient music-hall/pop piano-man tradition, with clear-headed songs of genuinely witty lyrical oomph and, most of all, a historically informed musical depth…Your candidate for such a new contender might very well be one Aaron Beaumont. – John Payne, L.A. Weekly

Optimistic, heartfelt and slightly quirky, Beaumont stands out in the sea of singer-songwriters who descend upon dark bars in Manhattan. – New York Cool

I’m absolutely blown away by this man’s music right now. The man creates piano-based soul-tinged songs that ooze with a revivalism of older composing values while yet staying timeless. – The Lemur Blog

MORE ABOUT AARON

A synthesis of 1920s ragtime pop and melodic songcraft reminiscent of the Beatles, along with nods to Tom Waits, Ben Folds and Elliott Smith, Aaron delivers a piano-centered aesthetic that is at once daring and refreshing. The young troubadour completed degrees in Economics, Spanish, and Literature before concluding that the world did not need A) a well-read bilingual economist; B) an economically savvy Spanish novelist; or C) yet another singer-songwriter. And he’s none of the above. Indeed, Aaron’s lush, timeless songs are anything but typical singer-songwriter fare.

A crowd favorite at his home base, the Hotel Cafe, his musical pedigree ranges from performing piano concertos with an orchestra to playing trumpet in a jazz quartet to touring the U.S. and Europe in a rock band. And that was just the first 25 years. The next 25 are even more promising.

Aaron released his debut album, Nothing’s Forever (Not Even Goodbye) on Milan Records in October 2008, and has since received play on tastemaker radio station 89.9 KCRW. The artist is fresh off successful East Coast and European tours, backed by tour press, radio, and retail efforts, as well as continued online viral promotion, and plans to continue touring nationally through 2009.
