UK artist Aaron James has been singing since the tender age of 10 years old, he never grew up in a musical family like most singers seem to come from but his mother did have a good ear for great singers after letting Aaron hear Maxwell The Urban hang Suite album he was hooked on urban music, he just seemed to be a natural in music from a young age.
Songwriting has always been a passion of mine says Aaron, but his skills really showed when he met Wayne C McDonald of production company DC Joseph, Wayne helped fine tune Aaron’s song writing.
My song writing still needs to go places but without Wayne my songs would never be as good, but not forgetting Wayne’s partner in crime Dex Nicholson who is a great producer and songwriter they bring out the best of this young urban artist. Now working with Firemonger Productions ran by Devon & Sermstyle, These guys are talented from the beats to knowing what is needed as soon as I open my mouth to sing.
Aaron was born in 1986 to a world class boxing dad John Davison (WBC International Featherweight title, WBC Banterwight title and British Title Champion) and mother Carol, Aaron has never been a stranger to hard work. Having jobs from the age of 13 to pay for studio time and pictures, now age 21 he has grown into a humble guy taking nothing for granted.
At the end of 2006 there is a lot of interest in Aarons music from the likes of Steve Ripley ex Sony exec where he worked for 30 years now has his own company SOULFOOD MUSIC, to Wiseass Records new indie company base out of Newcastle upon Tyne. There has also been interest from overseas from Jason Dauman (USA based) they all seem to be captured by his voice and style.
