Daring debut album launch
On returning home he has supported many established artists such as Iron & Wine, Joan Armatrading, Mick Flannery and former members of venerated Irish folk legends Planxty. He has also performed as a guest vocalist (Take it on the chin) and as Harmonica player (In the gutter) on Mick Flannery's debut album ?Evening Train?.
Having lived and performed in as far off places as Brazil, Sri Lanka, Paraguay, Tanzania, Denmark, the US and Australia, travelling helped hone his unique delivery and stagecraft, Aaron believes.
He has just released his eagerly awaited debut album ?Brown Envelope?, which will be launched at the Drogheda performance when Declan Hogge will play support.
Aaron?s music has been described as a ?Rootsy mix of Traditional and Urban Folk with strong melodies and thought provoking lyrics?.
Reviewers have described him as a ?writer with the lyrical audacity you don't often find here amongst Ireland's current crop of songwriters?, and ?a writer who writes on subjects that other writers wouldn't dare, with an abundance of poetic flair, humour and sensitivity to back it up?.
So keep your eyes peeled and your ears sharpened cause 2008 promises to be big year for Aaron Dillon. He plays Droichead Arts Centre May 29th, Triskel in Cork May 23rd, Dundalk Spirit Store May 25th, The Whiskey Bar Cork June 12th, and in July and August he will tour Tanzania and Kenya.
