BALCONYTV TORONTO IS BROUGHT TO YOU IN ASSOCIATION WITH INDIE WEEK AND THE UNDERGROUND GARAGE
PRESENTED BY NOEL COPEMAN
Canadian born and bred Aaron Pritchett, has proven himself to be one of the hardest working and sought after artists in the business. With numerous top hits, music videos, tours with Alan Jackson, Toby Keith and Brooks & Dunn, Aaron has gained a significant following across Canada. Over his career he has earned many accolades and awards, including a CCMA for Independent Male Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year in 2007 for the anthem, "Hold My Beer". His passion and intensity on stage coupled with his unwavering dedication to fans sets him apart from other acts and has helped solidify his success.
His 5th album, which will be in stores this fall touches on more serious themes with songs like "Coming Clean" and "She's Goin' Somewhere" but also brings back the high energy, rock and roll sound everyone loves in songs like "Pinch" and "Light It Up". For the first time, Aaron is overseeing all aspects; writing or co-writing almost every song, ensuring a true depiction of the kind of music that he's always wanted to make. The album will be appropriately named "In The Driver's Seat," because for the first time in Aaron's career, he is calling the shots and making sure the fans get what they want.
Growing up in small-town Northern BC, Aaron drew his earliest musical influences from 80's Rock, but the transition to country music came naturally, "It was based on being able to relate to the stories that country songs told. Those stories were a lot like mine. I was going fishing, camping, and riding buses to hockey tournaments in even smaller towns than my own, life was a lot more country than rock and roll. That down-home feel that resonated with me is what I strive to convey in my music today."
Still there is no doubt that his 80's rock roots have had a major influence on Aaron's performances. All that head banging he did as a kid shines through when he whips a stadium full of chanting fans into a frenzy while hammering out "Hold My Beer" or "Lets Get Rowdy."
All of this paired with Aaron's passion and drive to keep playing has created one of the most exciting shows in the country music industry.
Tune in next time!
