AMF Artist of the Month

AARON STEPHENS

 

Born in Illinois, raised on the border in McAllen, and now residing near Austin, soul singer-songwriter Aaron Stephens is a triple threat.

 

Blessed with a warm, rich voice that hearkens to old school soul legends and paired with bluesy, rootsy slide guitar, Stephens’ sound is brought together through his own imaginative arrangements and methodical songwriting that can be both introspective and broad-reaching, drawing inspirations from soul, blues, roots, pop, and funk.

 

In Summer 2018 Stephens will release his sophomore album, entitled “Focus”.  Songs about focusing on the things in life that matter, avoiding BS and finding joy in simplicity.
