The Aaron English Band
The Seattle-based Aaron English Band plays epic, world-beat-influenced rock a la Peter Gabriel and Led Zeppelin, driven by Aaron English's vivid lyrics, acrobatic voice, and deft piano work.
The band's live show is a blend of high-energy rock, pulsing electronics, and instrumentation from five continents, featuring Aaron English on vocals and keyboards, Patrick Strole on guitar and hurdy-gurdy, Aaron Kremer on wind synth and electronics, Brandon Milner on bass and Don Gunn on drums.
In 2012, the band released their live DVD "Animals Like Us"... & the single "Norwegian Wood/Kashmir" (a reinvention of the Beatles and Led Zeppelin classics), which reached the Top 5 on Italian rock radio charts, selling 10,000 units via Universal Records & reigniting the band’s career. The video for this medley has since become a viral hit on Youtube, racking up over 250,000+ views as of April 2017.
The band is currently releasing a new single and video each month, a project that will culminate in a new album release in 2017.
