Aaron Espe

Alighting upon the folk music scene two years ago from the upland wilds of Northern Minnesota, Aaron has begun to garner the attention that one might expect from a significant young talent. His recent plumes include:

-“My Whole Life” a top 20 album for 2006 (

-Featured artist for the 2007 Volkswagen Auto Tour.

-Showcased artist for the 2007 Folk Alliance, Memphis, Tennessee.

-Among the top-ranked unsigned folk artists (

If such a thing as the clichéd “total package” exists then attending one of Aaron Espe’s concerts offers attendees a hint as to what it may be. The beauty of his sound, coupled with the aura of a shy guy, stirs a desire to join the now burgeoning army of Espe’s unpaid publicists. Among his recent surge of supporters is President of CD Baby (America’s largest distributor of independent music), Derek Sivers:

“Aaron, I love your ‘My Whole Life’ CD so much I’m going to feature it on the front page of CD baby for a few days. We get about 100 new albums sent to us a day (about 100,000 total), and yours is one of the best I’ve ever heard!”

Without benefit of the high-powered promotion that hammers mainstream music into our consciousness, Aaron Espe’s fans greedily await the release of his second album, “Songs from a Small Town” (Spring 2008).

    I have three tracks by Aaron Espe and they are brilliant. Haven't managed to find any of his full lengths in the UK as of yet but I'll keep searching...

    I'm sorry for asking such a thing but does anyone have a link to download the new album? It's just for my curiosity, if I like I buy, of course. :) Thanks
