ABOUT THE RELEASE & THE TOUR


Brooklyn-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Aaron Roche offers us contrasting narratives: a singer-songwriter with an ear for the avant-garde; a contemporary composer who sings American folk music; an instrumentalist who works as a recording engineer.

His musical CV offers some insight into his craft. He performs (guitar) in the touring bands of musicians as diverse as R. Stevie Moore, Lower Dens, Sufjan Stevens and Anohni, he has composed music for the American Ballet Theatre, he has played trumpet with his father’s brass ensemble. Though filtered through his strange and singular lens, all these elements of sound help illuminate the musician and his vision. The wistful sensitivity and heartening playfulness of new album HaHa HuHu (figureight records, Sept 2017) reveals a songwriter both mature and confident, drawn to lo-fi and droning textures, to nonstandard song-crafting, to acutely personal observation.

Music to me has turned out to be the way I understand the human condition,“ Aaron writes. To hear his music offers an insight into a uniquely creative talent.
