Aaron Pollock is a contemporary country artist, his music drawing as many comparisons to John Mayer as to Nashville’s current up-and-comers. Having opened for artists including Jann Arden and Brett Kissel in 2018, Pollock is just getting started.
Pollock’s debut single “Nothing Much These Days” was recorded at OCL Studios and released in May 2018. The deeply personal song is an ode to “the struggle to find meaning in the aftermath of losing true love”. Having already racked up over 150,000 streams on Spotify, Pollock looks forward to following the single up with new music in 2019 helmed by production team Spencer Cheyne and Justin Kudding (Brett Kissel, Leaving Thomas, Jocelyn Alice).
Fascinated by the abundance of ways in which a powerful song can make an impact, Pollock cut his teeth writing, singing, and playing guitar in bands performing rock, reggae, soul, and pop. Ultimately, a reverence for honest storytelling inspired Pollock to bind his diverse influences together with a raw lyricism inspired by country music’s finest. A constant student of his craft, Pollock is always writing and seeking out new sources of inspiration.
Recognized as “One to Watch” by the Nashville Songwriters Association in spring 2017, Pollock has cowritten multiple songs recorded by other artists including Leaving Thomas (“Buzz”, “Like I Used To”, “Lie to Me”, “Nothing With You”), Kira Lynn (“The Bar”), Mark Times (“Movers and Shakers”), Devin Cooper (“No Chasing You”, “Nothing on You”), Kyle Dunn (“Jean Jacket”, “Can I See You Tonight?”), Lauren Mayell (“Small Town Weekend”), Mariya Stokes (“Hands on My Body”, “Break My Heart”, “Rebound”), and Ben Chase (“All Over It”).
A musician his entire life, Pollock left a career in Alberta politics in 2015 in order to pursue a career as an artist. Later that year he went on to place as a finalist in the Indie Week Canada competition in Toronto. Pollock was also selected to participate in the “Canada’s Music Incubator - Artist Entrepreneur” program, which took place at the Coalition Music facilities in Toronto during the summer of 2017.
