damonaaronDamon Aaron - Fall is off the new album from Ubiquity Records called "Highlands."  This is a collaboration of work that features hip-hop beats, acoustic guitar, percussion and beautiful relaxing lyrics.

Damon Aaron grew up in the foothills of Los Angeles playing folk and country music with his family noodling with radio shack synthesizers.  He began writing songs while working towards a degree in Fine Art at UC Santa Cruz.  Throughout the '90's he led several soul and hip-hop bands as a singer or an MC.  He played guitars for others like the Breakestra Hip-Hop Artist Divine Styler.

By the middle of the '90's he begain to expand his work into percussion and developed a style that incorporated more folkloric and soul music.  Names like Donny Hathaway, Nick Drake, Bob Marley and Oliver Mtukudzi were primary influences.  He continues his work with bands such as "Najite" and "Olokun Prophecy" as well as more electronic artists like "Barbara Morgentern" and "Telefon Tel Aviv".

He lives in Altadena California with his wife and children and continues to produce his own brand of personal and eclectic soul music and his new album is a must if you enjoy this pick of the week.
