Donations Encouraged

Vocalist and pianist Aaron Myers was born in Houston, Texas, and the baritone twang of his accent gives his performances a kind of swing that’s almost as much country and blues as it is jazz. He writes originals that range from the personal to the political, drawing inspirations from mid-century and smooth jazz as well as gospel triumph. He shines best on bluesy numbers like Art Blakey’s “Moanin’,” which he delivers with swagger, resilience and punch.

He plays a concert for CapitalBop’s “Freedom Summer” live stream series. The show will be a mix of pre-recorded and live segments including a Q&A with CapitalBop’s Luke Stewart.
