Aran Buzzas is a honky tonk singer/songwriter from Missoula Montana who dabbles in rowdy Irish folk music and has roots in bluesy rock. Aggressive rhythm guitar playing, strong vocals, and lyrics that are both amusing and heart-felt characterize Aran's country songs.
3 7 77, Aran's first full-length release, is the culmination of five years worth of work, with a year-and-a-half of that being actually making the CD. Featuring many of Missoula's best roots musicians, and Aran's strong songwriting and vocals, the album is a musical statement to the world.
Songs that range from humorous to heart-breaking, backed by the sounds of pedal steel, telecaster, fiddle, and banjo (for starters), this is homegrown Montana folky tonk! Traditional and "outlaw" country sounds, with a dash of Irish folk here and there. You'll find yourself relating to the lyrics, and humming the melodies!
Since the fall of 2010 Aran has been honing his live performance. Everything from late-night bar shows, to First Friday performances, to taprooms, festivals, house parties, and sports bars. He's shared the stage with Shooter Jennings, Scott H. Biram, Hellbound Glory, J.D. Wilkes & the Dirt Daubers, James McMurtry, Charlie Parr, Carrie Nation & The Speakeasy, Peewee Moore, Ten Foot Polecats, McDougall, Foghorn Stringband, and The Clumsy Lovers, among others, as well as appearing at Farmageddon Records Music Festival two years in a row, and the first-ever MoonRunners Music Festival in Chicago, IL, April 2013. Aran's song "There's Always Something (In the Way)" was included on the Outlaw Radio Chicago Compilation Vol. II, and his songs have been featured on such respected podcasts as IBWIP, Rebel Rouser Radio, Friday Happy Hour, Blue Ribbon Radio, and of course Outlaw Radio Chicago.
