Aaron Shirk is an 18 year old multi-instrumentalist and producer from Fredericksburg, VA. The son of two musicians, Aaron has been around music his entire life, and showed musical talent at an early age.
His parents recognized this talent, and encouraged him to pursue a variety of musical instruments. Aaron was homeschooled, and played saxophone, cello, guitar, piano, and sang during his elementary, middle, and high school years. Aaron has performed extensively with school and professional groups such as wind ensembles, orchestras, jazz ensembles, and mixed choirs in the Fredericksburg area. While Aaron was in middle school, his father would challenge him, and his older brother, to contests to see who could write the best song on their laptops in a few hours. These family contests were the beginning of Aaron’s interest in electronic music. Aaron constantly listens to EDM, and cites artists Illenium, Seven Lions, Crystal Skies, and Last Heroes as his major musical influences. Aaron is currently attending Berklee College of music to pursue a degree in Saxophone Performance and Electronic Music Production and Design.
