The opening artist joining us on this new podcast is The Piano Man from Seattle, Aaron English. Aaron's style is a fusion of world beat, jazz-influenced, melodic pop without all the pretense that normally goes along with that label. Honest music; brave, lush and complex, and all the while anchored with sensible and clever lyrics. Aaron English is a rare craftsman, uncompromising with his music, and yet is warm and approachable. Since his debut album in 2002, the following ten years have seen Aaron and his band have a variety of successes including a unique recreation of "Norwegian Wood" that has made its mark on charts around the world.
