Who, When, Where, What:
Aaron Beaumont performing at Hotel Cafe in Hollywood (1623 N Cahuenga Blvd), this Friday the 13th at 9pm. Be there!!!

Aaron Beaumont is an LA-newcomer who has knocked the socks off of the local music scene. He's an intelligent composer, a poetic and studied lyricist, a quirky performer and timeless piano player. Check out his samples at www.myspace.com/aaronbeaumont, and read his bio / reviews below.

Aaron's lush, melodic piano music is anything but typical singer-songwriter fare. This is thanks largely to Aaron's rich and eclectic musical upbringing, which ranged from performing piano concertos with an orchestra to playing trumpet in a jazz quartet to touring the U.S. and Europe as the bassist in a rock band. And that was just the first 20 years. Based on the results of his recent stint as a songwriter, the next 20 look just as promising.

Aaron released his freshman project, "Nothing's Forever, Not Even Goodbye" with Milan Records in October 2008. A synthesis of early 20th century piano-roll influences and melodic lines reminiscent of the Beatles, along with nods to Tom Waits and Elliott Smith, this superb 10-track release represents a piano-centered aesthetic that is at once daring and refreshing.

Recent Press:

"Maybe, just maybe, a new Elton John might be just what the doctor ordered, someone who can bring a new life to the ancient music-hall/pop piano-man tradition, with clear-headed songs of genuinely witty lyrical oomph and, most of all, a historically informed musical depth -- all delivered with style, grace, wit and elan, of course. Your candidate for such a new contender might very well be one Aaron Beaumont. His stuff simply never sounds trite, at least not in the earnest passion of his emotional palette -- and he's got that in spades." -L.A. Weekly

"Nothing?s Forever (Not Even Goodbye) is filled with impeccably crafted, pleasantly retro songs that rescue piano pop from the arch snarkiness of late-period practitioners like Ben Folds [Aaron] is clearly a songwriter who understands the difference between the strongly nostalgic and the simply timeless." Jeff Giles, Eat Sleep Drink Music

"I'm absolutely blown away by this man's music right now. The man who's name sounds just too perfectly fitting with his music to be true, creates piano-based soul-tinged songs that ooze with a revivalism of older composing values while yet staying timeless." The Lemur Blog
