Aaron Kaufman is a Connecticut-born, Minnesota-raised, and Texas-based singer/songwriter/guitarist/producer. With hints of indie folk, pop, and jazz, Aaron’s songs connect with audiences in clever and intimate ways. The winner of a BMI John Lennon Songwriting Scholarship, as well as NPR’s Whad’Ya Idol Competition (sort of like American Idol for public radio), Aaron has released 2 full length CD’s and 2 EP’s of solo material as well as worked with pop, R&B, folk, and EDM producers as a writer, cowriter, and vocalist.
“Aaron Kaufman‘s precision and control with his music has been clearly reflected in Origami. He provides just the right space for his sound to build up and disintegrate on their own, creating a slow burning impact to our ears.” -Review from Frostclick.com
Aaron is currently working with producers and engineers in Houston and New York finishing his next album. The songs combine his acoustic writing with non traditional singer/songwriter sounds, such as Tibetan singing bowls and electronic synth beds.
Aaron has spent the past 5 years working with music based nonprofits in Texas bringing music to children who need it most. Aaron was drawn to Houston to work with Purple Songs Can Fly, a songwriting program in the Texas Children’s Hospital that pairs songwriters with pediatric cancer patients to write and record their own songs. Aaron also works with Music Doing Good, an outreach based non-profit that provides after school programs, music scholarships, and instrument donations to at risk students and schools.
