ABOUT AARON BERG:: FROM SOUTH CAROLINA to NEW YORK CITY to NASHVILLE

Aaron Berg is an American musician and author whose work grows out of the American Roots tradition of Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Tom Waits, 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 natural blend of American folk, pop, and roots influences. During his early music years he played bass in numerous blues, rock, and soul bands.  Also during his teenage years Berg’s family ran a regional concert promotion company which promoted artists such as Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Lyle Lovett, Emmylou Harris, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Sam Bush, Gillian Welch, Los Lobos, Wilco, Lucinda Williams, John Prine, Dr. John, Tony Rice, Bela Fleck, and The Band, among many great American artists.  Witnessing up close such an eclectic array of masterful performers laid down a strong foundation for Berg's future voice as a songwriter himself.

At age eighteen Aaron moved to New York City to study upright bass at the New School's Jazz & Contemporary Music Conservatory departing from music studies after two years to begin recording full-time and touring nationally, while also performing throughout the NYC folk scene as a songwriter. 

Dan Armonaitis, syndicated Southern music critic said of the Aaron's first release:

“One of the finest folk-rock albums ever made by an Upstate musician. Only 22 years old, Berg sounds like a sage with a deep-throated vocal style that at various turns recalls Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, or Tom Waits.  Hardly a typical singer-songwriter release Berg’s debut is full of lush musical arrangements and diverse instrumentation that make it clear Berg is a serious artist with unlimited potential."

In 2010, Berg released the first edition of his auto-biographical travelogue titled "Midnight Shining Sun".  A second newly revised-expanded edition is scheduled to be released next Spring with Berg reading the text himself as an audio book.
