Aaron Martin began his musical life at age 11, switching between guitar and drums. At the age of 17, he decided to change paths and learn how to play cello, which he went on to study in college. While earning his music degree, he began to experiment with recording. After creating several self-released collections of music, and graduating from college, he recorded Almond, which caught the attention of the Australian label Preservation, and became his debut release.
He has gone on to record two more albums for Preservation, ‘River Water‘ and ‘Chautauqua‘, as well as one album for Experimedia called ‘Worried about the Fire‘, ‘Comet’s Coma‘ for Eilean Records, and most recently, ‘A Room Now Empty‘ for Preserved Sound. He has also collaborated with a variety of other musicians, including Machinefabriek, Part Timer, Dawn Smithson (as Winter’s Day), Dag Rosenqvist (as From the Mouth of the Sun), and Christoph Berg with releases on Type, Dronarivm, Facture, and Under the Spire Recordings. Aaron lives and records in Topeka, Kansas.
