Blake Aaron has come a long way from the kid who declared to his mother that he wanted to be a rock and roll musician. A guitarist that is known best for his ability to connect with an audience, Aaron has been a staple on the national music scene for many years as a live performer and in the studio.
A composer with an edge, Aaron has been the guitarist for such television shows as "MAD TV" (FOX), "10-8" (ABC), "The Jamie Kennedy Experiment" (WB), "Gary and Mike" (UPN),"The Ben Stiller Show" (FOX), "Sunday Night Comics" (FOX), and has recorded and/or performed with such artists as Steve Reid's Bamboo Forest, Eric Marienthal, Bobby Womack, Carlos Santana and The Gap Band.
Blake's debut Innervision release, With Every Touch (2001), included special guest appearances by Eric Marienthal and David Benoit.
His second album, Bringin' It Back (2004), propelled Blake into the forefront of contemporary jazz by reaching #26 on the Radio and Records charts. Two singles would reach the top 100 of the year on the smooth jazz charts.
Blake took a brief sabbatical from solo recording to focus on his studio career. Additionally, with the assistance of All Star Music Lessons, Blake would produce three instructional videos for the guitar. Meanwhile, he continued his studio work with several television shows, which included regular recording sessions and an appearance on Mad TV.
In Jun 2007, Blake released the hot CD, Desire. Filled with sizzling grooves and stellar craftsmanship and mastered by the legendary Bernie Grundman (Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie and more), Desire has been on the tip of the tongue of reviewers for some time and is sure to catapult Blake to the next level of contemporary jazz stardom.Posted by Peter Böhi at June 29, 2007 7:17 AM
