What I’m Really Like Truth is, most days you’ll find me being a dad to four boys (Silas 9, August 7, Lorentz 4, and Magnus 6 mos.) and a husband to an amazing, beautiful woman named Heidi. We live in a red brick house in Nashville, TN on the east side of the Cumberland River. In the summers we grow a huge garden. Every Friday we buy two 5-dollar Hot-N-Ready cheese pizzas from Little Caesar’s. I was an English Major in college, but I’m still two Spanish courses short of my degree. (Read that sentence again if you missed the irony the first time.) I dropped out to try and “make it” in music. Hard to believe now that was in 2004. Along the way I gigged all over the world, playing wherever I could. At one point I learned to tune pianos to help supplement my income. The midwesterner in me doesn’t love to admit this, but I’ve had a longstanding battle with severe anxiety and depression. In 2009 mine got really bad. I’ll forever be grateful to my first therapist and psychiatrist for breaking the mental illness myth I’d believed for so long. But I also realized I had to completely rethink my music career as a touring artist. It wasn’t until Heidi and I moved to Nashville, Tennessee that I found my stride as singer-songwriter and producer, signing with a great publisher here in town. I started writing on my blog (aaronespe.com) to benefit you, the people who have helped me have a career. Hit me up for any reason here: a@aaronespe.com. Love, Aaron
