Biography

Messes, Messes, Messes… Messes is the pseudonym of American singer-songwriter Aaron Robinson. Born July 5th, 1979 Aaron began playing classical guitar at the age of eight and has not given his fingers a rest since. One of the quieter members of the ongoing folk revival, Messes makes songs that are gentle, pretty, and somewhat folky, with intricate finger-picking under sweet melodies. Messes’ songs are probably what would happen if classical players and country players came together like the Mystics and the Skeksis in the Dark Crystal. His right hand guitar technique has been compared to that of folk guitar legends Bert Jansch, Richard Thompson, Nick Drake, and Mississippi John Hurt, and has drawn attention from bands and recording studios as far as England. As a songwriter he has been compared to several of his contemporaries including Iron and Wine, Elliott Smith, M. Ward, and Jose Gonzales. Messes writes and records his music at his home in Echo Park (LA) where his back gate opens up to 587 acres of park and trees. He can only be heard live or on his self-released e.p. which is available for sale at Aquarius Records.
