“The talent of Aaron Fyfe is evident… definitely someone to watch for” Glasgowwest.com
Glasgow based singer-songwriter Aaron Fyfe is undoubtedly one of the most talented upcoming musicians in the UK at the moment. Signed last year to Innovation Music after an impromptu performance at a party (a testament to the raw talent of the Dunblane-born artist); Aaron Fyfe has gone on to impress some of the biggest names in the industry.
With Aaron Fyfe’s natural raw talent, and the unbelievably high calibre of music industry professionals that have worked on the EP, certainly, we can expect big things from the ‘Closer To You’ EP. Produced by Jud Mahoney (known for his work with Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, and Justin Timberlake); mixed by Steve Price (who in 2012 won a Grammy for his engineering work on the Adele album 21 – and more recently was championed for his work on Emeli Sande); and mastered by Robin Schmidt (who worked on Jake Bugg’s recent UK number 1 album).
Fyfe’s emotive vocal quality and honest lyrics are reminiscent of Ray Lamontagne (who Fyfe cites as one of his biggest musical influences, alongside the likes of Ben Harper and Tracy Chapman). His undeniable talent is enriched by a dynamic band of musicians that help to present his diverse collection of songs while maintaining a distinctive and resonating sound.
The EP is a summary of Fyfe’s life story so far – “The ups and downs, the ins and outs”. Making music is clearly something that is very special to him; “I love it, it’s all I really ever wanted to do. As Duane Allman said, ‘music moves your heart and makes your soul feel good.’ I think that nails it!”
‘Closer To You’ will be released Monday 06 May 2013 through Innovation Music.
