Aaron Lee Tasjan #1523

Aaron Lee Tasjan writes folk songs for an indie rock crowd, weaving storylines with humor and social commentary. His debut full-length album, In The Blazes, includes friends from his former band, Everest, at the helm, and the vibe of Elliott Smith’s studio, New Monkey. Tasjan is touring heavily in support of the album, opening for Ray Wylie Hubbard, and playing solo and band gigs across the country. NOTE: We previously featured ALT here, following his debut EP.

I jokingly said to Aaron Lee Tasjan that it might be a shorter list of who he has NOT played music with.  Even though his name may not be familiar offhand, Tasjan was actually mentioned in some outtakes of our show several years ago, when I was talking with Kevn Kinney about emerging bands that he liked; Tasjan’s former band, Madison Square Gardeners, were on the top of Kinney’s list.  Bring that full circle of them working together on Anton Fier’s Golden Palominos record, A Good Country Mile, and now, Tasjan is the featured guitar player on the road with Drivin N Cryin.  It is truly a small world.

Tasjan writes his own music, as well, taking lessons from those with whom he has worked and applying them to improving his own songs.  His new EP, Crooked River Burning, shows some of his more recent direction, but I anticipate that Tasjan will continue to evolve as a writer.  I cannot imagine his music stagnating.  Produced by Anton Fier and released on Rockwood Music Hall Recordings, Tasjan incorporates his mentors into his music as much as he becomes one of them when playing their songs.
