"Thomas Rhett and John Mayer go to an Eagles show," is how Aaron Pollock would respond if you asked him how to describe his contemporary country sound. The Calgary-based artist crafts his songs by combining soulful guitar and a versatile baritone voice with modern pop songwriting flavours.
Pollock’s debut single “Nothing Much These Days” was released on May 10th, 2018. The song was recorded at OCL Studios and produced by Spencer Cheyne (Leaving Thomas, Jocelyn Alice).
Pollock was recognized as “One to Watch” by the Nashville Songwriters Association in spring 2017 and has recently had multiple songs either picked up by various publishing companies or recorded by other artists including Leaving Thomas, Mariya Stokes, Mark Times, and Devin Cooper.
A musician his entire life, Pollock left a career in Alberta politics in 2015 in order to dedicate himself to his craft. 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 over 8 weeks at the Coalition Music facilities in Toronto.
