get to know Aaron
Country storytelling rooted in the midwest, Aaron Clafton combines his experience of growing up in central Minnesota with simple and raw production. Influenced by artists like Toby Keith, Brad Paisley and Eric Church Aaron began writing and performing his own songs in high school. Clafton attended Bemidji State University and continued to pursue music. While in school, he played college bars, open mics and even got the opportunity to open for acts like Logan Mize, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Dale Watson.
Clafton moved to Nashville, TN in 2016. He eventually found community and his songwriting continued to improve. In 2019, Aaron released his debut single, Spare Key which gained over 40,000 streams on Spotify. He then followed up that success in 2020 with two more singles, Matches and Burn Me. Looking forward, Aaron will be closing out 2020 with the release of an Acoustic EP. The first single, We Should've Stayed In, is currently available for pre-save and pre-order.
