This music is true. When you hear someone who is meant to make music perform, the impact is certain and
powerful. This is the experience that comes with listening to Aaron Flinn (solo or with his band Salad
Days). The music is meant to be and anyone who takes the time to hear it will be stronger for it.
Aaron Flinn plays anything he can get his hands on and writes, engineers, records and performs most of the material that you'll hear. Aaron also loves hitting the studio or stage with a long list of incredibly talented characters: poets, prophets, beats, bastards, wizards, fairies, family and friends.
Elements of folk, indie rock and classic country combine with powerful vocals, poetic lyrics and finger-picking guitar. An eclectic group of americana and rock songs, with an emphasis on lyrical substance and performance from the soul. Aaron began playing and writing in high school. He won numerous competitions in performance and writing throughout his time at UVM and Berklee College of Music (where he graduated Magna Cum Laude - for what it's worth). He has gone onto release an impressive body of original work, all the while touring such hallowed venues as Red Rocks Amphitheater, The Great American Music Hall and many House of Blues and working with the likes of The Samples, Gov't Mule, Joe Bonamassa, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Don McLean and Tragically Hip to name but a few.
