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 celebrates the release of his latest record, The Pride Album, as part of Blues Alley’s Monday night series at the National Press Club. There is a 200-person limit for the in-person performance and proof of vaccination is required.

The show will also be livestreamed. The link to the performance will be emailed once you’ve purchased a streaming pass.
