Aaron Pollock is a country artist from Calgary, Alberta. From the moment he could speak, Aaron's passion for music has defined him, his first ever spoken words being "V for Violin". Picking up violin and piano at age 5, it wasn't long before he switched his focus to guitar playing and singing. When he fell in love with the craftsmanship present in country music as a teenager, he decided that writing quality songs was what he had to focus on each and every day. Aaron has since worked hard to develop his skills, attending Berklee College of Music’s Summer Performance Program in 2011.
In 2014, Aaron was selected as a finalist in CBC's nationwide "Rock Your Campus" competition. Having had multiple songs picked up by publishing companies since then and being recognized as "One to Watch" by the Nashville Songwriter's Association (NSAI), he is quickly making a name for himself as a heavyweight in the Canadian songwriting community. Lending his chops to a worthy cause, Aaron teamed up with the Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF) in 2016 to create "Blue Sky Won't Break", a song dealing with the emotional struggles of homelessness. All proceeds from this song are donated to the CHF. Also a veteran of the stage, Aaron performs multiple times per week and was selected as finalist in the Indie Week Canada 2015 competition in Toronto.
Raised with a Fender Stratocaster in hand, Aaron's guitar playing is filled with the textures and grooves of his diverse musical influences. Drawing from the sonic landscapes of contemporary country, rock and pop music, Aaron compliments these sounds with an emotional depth and awareness. Combining this with a baritone voice that can be both powerful and tender, Aaron has spent considerable time crafting his own unique take on country music. In 2017, Aaron looks forward to furthering his knowledge while attending Canada's Music Incubator's Artist Entrepreneur program.
