Aaron Allen 2015 music

October 18, 2015


Band: Aaron Allen & the Small City Saints
Release: Better Days
Date: April 21st, 2015
Home: Chatham Ontario
Resides: London Ontario Canada.

Call him country, folk, rock, cow punk or blues, Aaron Allen is just a singer songwriter who writes honest music from the heart and could care less about fitting into any one genre. He tends to write about topics other people would prefer to keep quiet and that’s quite evident on the singer’s sixth studio release.
Aaron Allen, born August 1, 1981 in Chatham, Ontario, is a Canadian alt-country/blues/acoustic/rock singer-songwriter. Driven by influences such as Neil Young, Ryan Adams and Bob Dylan, Aaron’s approach to writing music starts from the power of his lyrics which are sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes straight up rock and roll, but always true to his heart and honest. Aaron believes in making music that is timeless and continues to carve out his place in the music industry to ensure a long career in doing what he loves.
Produced By Mack Edwards
Engineered, co-produced and mixed by Simon Larochette
Recorded at the Sugar Shack, London On, Canada.
