A mention on a top, internationally watched TV drama can sometimes be the spark that ignites a career. In an episode of the Fox TV drama Bones last year, a character made a mix of “the six greatest break-up songs” and gave it to a heart-broken colleague. The mix featured songs from alternative-pop stars such as Sia, Mazzy Star, José González, Antony and the Johnsons…and a lone unsigned artist by the name of Aaron English.
For the past 5 years, Seattle-based piano-man Aaron English has been steadily building a buzz in the U.S., thanks to two self-released albums and three national tours. But in 2008, English’s 3rd national tour ended abruptly in a catastrophic accident on a Midwestern highway. His restaurant-grease-fueled tour bus and most of his musical equipment were destroyed - English’s touring career was temporarily grounded.
In the summer of 2009, his fans rallied to his aid and funded the recording of Aaron’s third album, american [fever] dream. Produced by Geoff Stanfield (Sun Kil Moon, Black Lab) in a 150-year-old warehouse in Seattle during a record-breaking heat wave, the album is a document of English’s phoenix-like journey back from tragedy…and a testament to the resiliency of the creative spirit.
