Born in Worcester, Massachusetts, Aaron Lindenberg pursued piano and voice lessons at a young age, and started writing his own songs soon after. His debut EP, 2015's "Ugly Things" showcased his lyrical prowess and vocal arrangements over lush, organic R&B. Its three songs were vivid, transportive folk tales of unrequited love and existential questioning. His subsequent releases have spanned styles and subject matter. "Friend," is a glowing, minimalist synth-pop gem, addressed to a disillusioned friend. "You," begins with striking vocal orchestration before dipping into a sleek, electro-latin ode to self-empowerment.
