hmv's Next Big Thing... #236 Aaron Smith
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Scottish singer-songwriter Aaron Smith...
Who Is He?
Smith hails from the tiny Scottish town of Polmont, 50 miles North of Glasgow, it's a place he describes as boasting "an ALDI and a prison. And that’s about it".
He's dropped a series of excellent single already, toured with folk maestro Luke Sital-Singh and is now preparing his debut EP Loveless for release.
He's certainly prolific, he had over 70 tracks to choose from for the EP...
What Does He Sound Like?
This is weighty, folk-influenced stuff. Think Parachutes era Coldplay with John Mayer in his more earnest moments thrown it.
Why Should I Be Excited?
Smith's ear for a chorus and powerful voice make a very potent combination.
Can I Hear Something?
Absolutely. His new jam 'Better Than You Loved Me' is below for your ears to enjoy...
