Immersed in the diverse cultural crossroads of America’s North and South, Aidan’s musical identity is an amalgamation of the varied genres that surrounded him during his upbringing. Inspired by a mosaic of influential artists, from Arctic Monkeys to John Coltrane and Jackson C. Frank, Aidan’s musical narrative weaves a tapestry of rich influences. Bringing a captivating stage presence, honed through experiences both in front of the camera and on stage – exemplified by my recent portrayal of Pablo Picasso in Puccini’s opera La Boheme at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. – Aidan infuses his musical endeavors with compelling energy.
Embarking on his musical journey at 17, Aidan frequented clubs across the Washington D.C., Northern Virginian, and Maryland regions, culminating in the release of his debut LP, “Day Dreamin’,” in the spring of 2023. Easily accessible on platforms such as Spotify, Soundcloud, Band Camp, and Apple Music, Aidan’s music is just a click away. Stay tuned for an upcoming wave of new music and videos in the coming months! Here’s to the ongoing exploration of our musical journey!
