An award winning journalist and author, Nelson has performed his unique musical shows in NYC, Hollywood, London's West End, the Sydney Opera House and as part of Michael Feinstein's "54 Below at Sea." In addition to his vast repertoire ranging from The Great American Songbook and iconic film themes to contemporary artists, Nelson delights audiences with his incredible showbiz stories and spontaneous Q&A sessions.

Copies of Nelson's new book will be available for a discounted purchase price and he'll be happy to personally sign yours after the show.

Cabaret Scenes Magazine said of the NYC production of Welcome Home: "Aspen really dug into the feelings within the lyrics and made a touching connection with both the songs and the audience. He was both clever and charming, showing off an ability to swing a melody and deal with an abundance of lyrics. The audience was sent out on a high, making them eager for Aspen's next performance."
