Colorado born Aaron Martin is, for my money, one of the key people that seemed to influence a shift in experimental/ambient music listening, around 10 or so years ago. From his classic 2006 debut 'Almond' for Preservation - a label who have provided a home for several of his releases - to his more recent works, Aaron has tiptoed in and around various ideas that channel folk, the avant-garde, improv, found-sound and classical. His albums act as a sort of conduit for nostalgia, the bittersweet, solitude, melancholy... leaving you both moved and awakened.
