Aaron Ball on JHub: Araon Ball to start Northwest Tour

Local musician Aaron Ball is embarking on a northwest tour in support of the release of his first solo album, “New Beginnings.”

You have most likely heard from him before, though this is his first release under his own name, Ball has been involved in the Idaho music scene for many years, as the vocalist for Somewhere in the Middle and the drummer for Gas Food and Lodging.

The album features ten songs, including a remix of the Somewhere in the Middle song “Second Gear.”

“I wrote it with piano, and when we recorded it, it came out guitar, so I wanted to redo that for its original sound,” said Ball.

The song was originally released on the Somewhere in the Middle self titled EP in 2010, which was recorded in New Orleans. The song was played frequently on local and regional radio stations.

He adds that this new album has a mostly rock feel, though in classic Aaron Ball style, he dabbles in many different genres.

“It is mostly rock, there are a couple songs that are almost country. ‘Omaha,’ the first track has country rock sound,” he said.

Ball and the band will be playing several shows in Southeast Idaho, Oregon, Washington and Nevada in June.

They will be performing at The Bunkhouse Saloon in Las Vegas on Saturday, then will take a couple of days off before performing two shows in one day in Idaho Falls, the first at the Idaho State University campus at noon, and then at The Frosty Gator at 8 p.m. From there the group will travel to Oregon, playing shows in Ontario and Pendelton before heading to Washington for a show in Tacoma.

The Aaron Ball Band will perform a show in Pocatello on Wednesday, June 19 at the FlipSide Lounge, 117 S. Main St. at 9 p.m. The show is set up to follow the Revive @ 5 celebration that will wrap up at 8 p.m. a few blocks down the street at the Old Town Pavilion.

They will also perform at the Idaho Music and Wildflower Festival on June 22, which is held annually at the Pebble Creek Ski Area near Inkom.

Ball said that his many years of music experience both locally and nationally allowed him to find the best musicians for the part on this solo album.

“It was a fun album to do because I had musician friends from around the county who stepped in and helped me,” he said, “it has been a unique album because I was able to say, ‘who would be the best guitar player for this lead, and who can I get to play the fiddle?’”
