Musical Act 3
“All I had was my voice and a guitar, so country music was really the only way to go for me,” Allen says. “I’ve always loved how simple and direct great country songs are. They go straight to the heart, and that’s what I’ve always tried to achieve with songs I write. I feel like my favourite artists are speaking specifically to me, and I hope people have that feeling when they hear my songs.”
Indeed, just as a tattoo is permanent, Aaron Allen’s songs make an emotional impact just as lasting. Look for him to soon be included in the conversation about Canada’s most promising country music stars.
