"Mr. Picar sings passionate, urban nuanced folks songs of yearning. In a breathy voice, with minimalist guitar that recalls Nick Drake and some of the more delicate moments of famed English story-teller Cat Stevens, Picar's first offering is a treat.'"
Bill Mallonee--Vigilantes of Love, "One of Paste Magazine's Greatest Living Songwriters"
Aaron PICAR is eclectic folk for eclectic folk.
So just what does that mean? He's still trying to figure that out. One thing is for sure, Aaron has been described by award winning musicians and industry insiders as "Intense" and "Passionate"
With his debut album, "Rise Together" Aaron shows his distinct ability as a songwriter and performer and makes his declaration. Sounding like the sonic lovechild of Bob Dylan and Jars of Clay that has been raised by wolves like Vigilantes of Love and the Nashville Resistance, Aaron's "Rise Together" is what your ears have been missing.
Aaron also works as a special education teacher and youth advocate for troubled youth. This places
Aaron at the forefront of the new generation of artists and musicians. In a recent interview with the Southeast Missourian Aaron said, "I believe in the power of art. It's more than a nice song to sing along with, or a pretty picture on the wall. I believe art can inspire hope." A great song, or work of art can do more than just change your day, it can change your world.
Aaron believes this so much he has used his music and art to organize benefits for such organizations as Summit for Someone, International Justice Mission, World Vision ACT:S, Heart for Africa.
Ultimately, Aaron Picar crafts his songs to connect the unchanging truth to the changing world so the listener reaches beyond oneself to something greater.
