Began his musical life at age 11, switching between guitar and drums. At the age of 17, he decided to change paths and learn how to play the cello, which he went on to study in college. While earning his music degree, he began to experiment with recording.
After creating several self-released collections of music, and graduating college, he recorded Almond, which caught the attention of the Australian label Preservation, and became his debut release.
He has gone on to record two more albums for Preservation, River Water and Chautauqua as well as one album for Experimedia called Worried about the Fire.
He has also collaborated with a variety of other musicians, including Machinefabriek, Part Timer, Dawn Smithson (as Winter’s Day), and Dag Rosenqvist (as From the Mouth of the Sun), with releases on Type, Dronarivm, Facture, and Under the Spire Recordings.
Aaron Martin lives and records in Topeka, Kansas. His music may be found on his bandcamp page.
This was Martin’s debut performance at Pageant: Soloveev Gallery in Philadelphia, PA. The performance was part of the series called: Fire Museum Presents.
