Acclaimed for bringing “rock energy” to “country audiences”, Aaron Pritchett continues to hold the title of one of the most sought after artists in the business. His passion and intensity for his art overflows on stage and spills into his unwavering dedication to his fans.
Growing up in small-town Northern BC, Aaron drew his earliest musical influences from 80’s Rock, but the transition to country music came naturally, “it was based on being able to relate to the stories that country songs told. Those stories were a lot like mine. I was going fishing, camping, and riding buses to hockey tournaments in even smaller towns than my own, life was a lot more country than rock and roll. That feeling resonated with me and I strive to convey that in my music today”
Still there is no doubt that his rock roots have had a major influence on his sound with hits such as the classic’s “Big Wheel”, “Hold My Beer” and “Let’s Get Rowdy” to his latest “Boat on the Water”, “Hold You Like My Whiskey” and “Wake You With A Kiss”. Following on the heels of a cross Canada tour, 2015 will see the release of a much anticipated greatest hits album.
... I just didn’t think it would be this soon! Or is it really that soon? I’ve been in the music industry now for 25 years, recording music for 20 years, releasing songs to radio for 15 years and have had over 20 singles and videos released in that time so, YES, it is time for this!! A real sense of pride comes over me to be able to say that I’ve even had one hit but when I play shows and everyone is singing along to “My Way”, “Done You Wrong” or “Hold My Beer” and all the rest, it was time for the fans to be able to have them all on one CD. To me, this is only the first phase of my career in music so maybe one day I could have another Greatest Hits: Round Two?!
