Aaron Berg is an American musician and author whose work grows out of the troubadour tradition of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, and Leonard Cohen. Born in South Carolina to mom & pop owners of one of the oldest record stores in the United States, Berg's style is a broad river of American folk, pop, and roots influences. At age eighteen Aaron moved to New York City before departing from music conservatory studies after two years to begin recording full-time, touring nationally, while performing throughout the NYC folk scene. This official site offers a definitive collection of videos, news, music, and concert updates. As an introduction to Aaron’s music we offer TWO FREE PUBLIC DOWNLOADs featuring 6 songs each drawn from five releases ranging from nocturnal hymns of soul-powered Americana to threadbare acoustic demos, bootlegs, and live tapes. Berg’s current discography includes: Saint Valentine (2013), Exiles In Paradise (2012), Midnight Shining Sun (Book/CD; 2010), Love & Coffee Tapes (2007-2010), Songs For Madame X (2007).
In September 2012, Aaron Berg relocated to Nashville, Tennessee. "Saint Valentine" is the first set of new material since his migration. Written and recorded at his apartment on Summit Avenue just a few blocks from Music City's legendary Music Row the tracks are entirely a solo effort featuring a range of layered performances. The five songs outline a wintery landscape colored by reverberant voices and shimmering ambient overtones. The mood as Southern Zen poet Doc Huckster desecribes is: "Melancholy but divine."
