While growing up in Vancouver, Canada, Aaron Bucks always gravitated towards music, but the pressure to pursue a conventional career kept him from taking his passion for music and songwriting seriously. Opting instead for culinary school, he spent every weekend performing at weddings and parties while also leading worship at his local church. Through encouragement from fans who’d heard him play and friends who knew his passion for music, an old acquaintance offered to help pay for him to record an album, which pushed him to reevaluate his career path and follow his music passion.
Now newly signed to BEC Recordings in partnership with Eskelin's Radiate Music, Bucks is slated to release a full album later this year.
Brandon Ebel, President of BEC Recordings/Tooth & Nail Records, shares, "I’ve known and worked with Ian Eskelin for almost 20 years and I couldn’t be more excited about this partnership. Ian played me Aaron’s music and his first single grabbed my attention right away. I look forward to working with Aaron alongside Radiate Music."
"California" as a debut single is a great representation of who Aaron Bucks is, not only by his musical style but his character: full of life and a constant amazing energy. Cross Rhythms UK has already touted him with a "positive uplifting vibe and a laid back attitude."
When asked what inspires him as an artist and a songwriter, Bucks shares, "Inspiration is literally everywhere, but the trick is to slow myself down enough to tap into it. One thing that inspires me is humanity itself, hearing stories of strength, perseverance, will, determination, love, faith, and yes, even the stories of failures and struggles move me. Ultimately wherever the listener may be in life, I hope my music can truly brighten their day."
Aaron Bucks currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee with his wife and three children. Be sure to catch him live when he will be performing at AtlantaFest in June. For further tour dates and more information, please visit his site and social links below.
