Americana Festival 2014

“The evening kicked off at the High Watt where a future star in Americana made his festival debut. Emerging from the amazing creative and developmental ground of East Nashville, Aaron Lee Tasjan played a solo set that was one of the most entertaining performances of the week.  The lead guitarist in Elizabeth Cook’s band, Aaron is a cross between a young Neil Young for his guitar playing skills, and a young Bob Dylan for his songwriting.  Proudly flouting the rules of the Music Row establishment, Tasjan is right at home in Americana performing his style of music and writing songs that are true to his heart.  Songs like “Move to East Nashville and Write a Song About a Train” show the depth of this singer-songwriter’s talent, as virtually every song is a story with meaning. This is a young man who’s star is on the rise.”-Americana Review Click HERE to visit americanareview.blogspot.com

While trying to escape the heat of the Mercy Lounge I found myself in the cooler High Watt space watching a performance of Aaron Lee Tasjan. Exhibiting the droll but sharp humor of Todd Snider but the delicate songcraft of Townes Van Zandt the Nashville resident defied all expectations.”-Twangnation.com Click HERE to visit twangnation.com
