Aaron Lee Tasjan to Play at the Rockwood Music Hall Stage, 7/6
Aaron Lee Tasjan is bringing his own distinct version of indie folk grit to New York, NY on July 6th. Tasjan released his second solo EP, Crooked River Burning, on Rockwood Music Hall Recordings in the spring of 2014.
As a live performer, Tasjan's stories between songs, often humorous and at least half true, take us back to the days of Arlo Guthrie or John Prine, while his songs about eating junk food and taking drugs--or how it seems everything around us is in some way broken--offer stunning lyrical accounts and insights. As one reviewer aptly said, "Tasjan's words are soaked in spilled whiskey, misunderstood tears and dusty memories. Each number seeps into the cracks of your troubled soul" (Garret Woodward, Smoky Mountain News).
A native of New Albany, Ohio, Tasjan has worked and toured with an array of renowned talents including Peter Yarrow, The New York Dolls, BP Fallon and Alberta Cross (among others), as a guitarist, songwriter and producer. Now living in Nashville, TN, his list of accomplishments and accolades continue to grow, all while evolving his personal style that he coins as, "somewhere between a folk singer and the dude with no shirt on as the wind blows through his hair as a fucking eagle lands on his guitar neck."
Having spent time earlier this year touring with Drivin' N' Cryin', Tasjan will travel coast to coast in July to perform his solo material, from New York City to a residency in Portland, with a stop at Bunbury Music Festival in between.
