Aron Blue has been writing country songs for a long time. A couple years ago she started rocking out with some musical friends, calling them the Bootleggers because they were also making and selling homebrew and magic brownies out of her cheap loft in Bushwick. The homebrew and cheap loft are gone but Aron Blue is still writing and performing her songs about living large on small means.
A honky-tonk/rock hybrid [whoâ€™ve] written Brooklyn-themed songs any local audience member can understand. - Josh Barone, NY Times
"Her music can be bluesy, brassy, sometimes a bit confrontational, with equal parts redneck and urban cynicism ... Revealed is a heartland moral compass, not entirely given to punk-inspired nihilism, nor to post-punk political correctness." - Joe Maynard, Maynard & the Musties
With a family lineage of Pentecostal preachers, Wobblies, horse thieves, and hippie revolutionaries, Aron Blue learned early on to distrust authority and listen to the still, small voice.
She has been featured on public television and radio, online music festivals, and documentaries by Vice Magazine and IndyVideo.
She has performed at New York City venues like Bowery Electric, The Bitter End, The Stone, The Brooklyn Country Music Festival 2015 and the Brooklyn Americana Music Festival 2016 and 2017.
She completed her first national tour this summer, The Rail Pass Tour, with performances at coffeehouses and pubs in cities such as Atlanta, Birmingham, New Orleans, and Austin.
Her first EP The Party Album is currently available on all major digital outlets. The second EP Red-Headed Scorpio was mixed by Larry Crane of Tape Op and will be released Summer 2018.
