Aaron Lessard is the modern take on Vintage Rock N’ Roll. Carrying nothing but a six string Gretsch and a bad boy bravado, he boldly fuses together the aesthetics of early roots music, rockabilly, surf, jazz, and blues. Although a purist in a songwriting sense, his daring and distinct guitar artistry is genre-less. Aaron’s debut EP “Sex Jive Rock N’ Roll” was featured on Lightning 100, Nashville’s largest Independent radio station. Aaron has opened for Artists such as Sarah Potenza and Nashville legend, Johnny Hiland.
A graduate of Berklee College of Music, Aaron developed a love for jazz guitar, which has remained an integral part of his playing today. His drastic variation in style is reflective of his biggest influences, including Brian Setzer, Eddie Van Halen, Joe Pass, Leon Bridges, Eddie Cochran, and more.
Now residing in Nashville, TN, Aaron brings a retro and highly charged energy to his live shows. His trio including drums and upright bass is a vintage tour de force that will make you dance the night away.
