A passionate artist who wears his heart on his sleeve, Calgary-based singer/songwriter Aaron Pollock fits right in with fresh, bold, and soulful Nashville entertainers like Devin Dawson, Brett Young, and Brothers Osborne.
Pollock’s debut single “Nothing Much These Days” was was recorded at OCL Studios and released in May 2018. The deeply personal song is Pollock’s ode to “the struggle to find meaning in the aftermath of losing true love”. Having already racked up over 50,000 streams on Spotify, the single is slated to be followed up in fall 2018 by new music produced by Spencer Cheyne and Justin Kudding (Leaving Thomas, Jocelyn Alice, Brett Kissel).
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”), 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.
