Aaron Martin began his musical life at age eleven, switching between guitar and drums. At the age of seventeen, he decided to change paths and learn how to play the cello, which he went on to study in college. While earning his music degree, he began to experiment with recording.
After creating several self-released collections of music, and graduating college, he recorded Almond, which caught the attention of the Australian label Preservation, and became his debut release. He has gone on to record two more albums for Preservation, River Water and Chautauqua, as well as collaborating with a variety of other musicians, including Machinefabriek, Part Timer, and Tan or Boil, with releases on Type, mobeer, Experimedia, and Under the Spire Recordings. Aaron Martin lives and records in Topeka, Kansas.
Aaron’s ability to create some of the most majestic and commanding musical narratives layer by layer has astounded the tribe since we were first introduced. Be sure to check out his extensive catalog of music. He is featured on the Lost Tribe Sound: One release with the track “Sea Wasp”, a gorgeous piece written specifically for this release. Aaron’s cello work can also be heard on the recent Part Timer release, Real to Reel.
