Called "truly unique"and "emotionally charged" by Get it on Vinyl, and described as “Masterful” by the A&M Arts Examiner, Aaron Gibson's distinctive style of playing perfectly supports his storytelling. Aaron, along with his wife and children, have their roots in a small tribal community near the Oregon coast where his poetic pursuits permeate his songwriting, visual art and woodworking. The forty six year old artist has been playing bass and singing in bands since the age of ten. Around 2009, Aaron decided to start releasing music as a solo artist and has delivered ten singles, three full length albums and thirty music videos. On January 1st of 2019, Aaron released ‘Horror Films and Sunday School’, a collaboration with Grammy Award winning composer and producer Nahuel Bronzini that features San Fransisco’s Amaranth Quartet, Celebrated UK bassist Steve Lawson, Mia Pixely, Talitha Gibson and world music bass virtuoso Jason Everett. Nahuel and Aaron have decided to continue their partnership and are entering the new decade as duo.
Music gives me hope. Writing music provides me a way to analyze my problems deeply, then to distill them down into a state that I can take apart, sink my teeth into and create with. Then, it was pictures and phrases. Now, it is worlds and mazes
To make the most honest music that I am capable of.

Honestly? Well, that would be when everything turns to shit. I am not Atlas, so my burdens sometimes fall. When they do, I become prolific. Is that inspiration? Feels more like a curse.
Don’t drink the cool aid. Sincerely.
It’s a grind. Every person has a grind, so that’s reality in every field. Music as a grind is better than construction, unless you hate music and love building things. Then music would be worse than construction.
So far, I think it’s a great idea. Well implemented . Just needs more users
Crippling self doubt.
I gig locally both as an artist and as a backing music for other local artists. I also attend shows whenever I can. I tip buskers.
You need to have the ability to work your ass off consistently and have luck at the right time.
