A lot of great male voices have come from North Carolina including Eric Church, James Taylor, Randy Travis and Don Williams. With the release of “Tinderbox”, Aaron Burdett has proven this his name needs to added to that list.
— Rick Amburgey, No Depression

  Aaron Burdett serves up the finest song driven Americana the North Carolina mountains has ever produced. Based in Saluda, a small town near Asheville, Aaron shares a singular perspective on the world around us, connections to places and people, and the simple pleasures of life through his heartfelt, thoughtfully crafted songs. Building on the traditions of the finest performing songwriters, Aaron’s original Americana music blends folk-rock, bluegrass, and blues into a sound that’s at once totally original but also comfortingly familiar. His honest songwriting pours in between hammer-on chord changes and rolling crosspicking rhythms, all the while keeping at the forefront his own unique sound and authentic voice.

     His sixth full length project, Tinderbox, was released in June of 2015, recorded with his fantastic road band at Crossroads Studios for Organic Records. Produced by Tim Surrett from the award winning bluegrass group Balsam Range, it’s Aaron’s best work yet. Filled with songs of hope and heartache, it swells and swings from anger to resolute calm and back again as the album progresses.   

    Whether solo or with his band, Aaron Burdett is an artist not to miss. His songs will take you on a journey every time, and his voice will always lead you through winding backroads and bring you home again.
