Sorry Folks, No Image Is Here.

Starting with a pair of shows in the LA area next Monday, Aaron Beaumont has a series of dates to showcase the melodic songcraft from his debut album Nothing’s Forever (Not Even Goodbye).

Here’s a little information about Aaron Beaumont:

A synthesis of 1920s ragtime pop and melodic songcraft reminiscent of the Beatles, along with nods to Tom Waits, Ben Folds and Elliott Smith, Aaron delivers a piano-centered aesthetic that is at once daring and refreshing. The young troubadour completed degrees in Economics, Spanish, and Literature before concluding that the world did not need A) a well-read bilingual economist; B) an economically savvy Spanish novelist; or C) yet another singer-songwriter. And he’s none of the above. Indeed, Aaron’s lush, timeless songs are anything but typical singer-songwriter fare.

A crowd favorite at his home base, the Hotel Cafe, his musical pedigree ranges from performing piano concertos with an orchestra to playing trumpet in a jazz quartet to touring the U.S. and Europe in a rock band. And that was just the first 25 years. The next 25 are even more promising.

Aaron released his debut album, Nothing’s Forever (Not Even Goodbye) on Milan Records in October 2008, and has since received play on tastemaker radio station 89.9 KCRW. The artist is fresh off successful East Coast and European tours, backed by tour press, radio, and retail efforts, as well as continued online viral promotion, and plans to continue touring nationally through 2009.
