••Aaron Lee Tasjan — Crooked River Burning••
The Nashville troubadour is making a much-needed splash up and down the East Coast with his acoustic numbers layered atop a rich rock-n-roll foundation. Tasjan’s words are soaked in spilled whiskey, misunderstood tears and dusty memories. Each number seeps into the cracks of your troubled soul, where names like Paul Simon and James McMurtry come to mind when trying to nail down this record.
Key Tracks: “Don’t Walk Away,” “Drugs and Junk Food,” “Number One”
Our good friends over at Daytrotter have just released a new set of recordings featuring both released and unreleased songs from the new EP Crooked River Burning (out March 25th on Rockwood Music Hall Recordings) and elsewhere. Click HERE to listen to the brand new recordings.
Our friends over at American Songwriter have debuted a live video of the new song “Don’t Walk Away” shot at Rockwood Music Hall a few weeks ago.

Tune in to Archer this season and hear new country music performed and written by Kevn Kinney, Jessy Lynn Martens and myself. We even did a bluegrass version of “Danger Zone” and got to record with the man himself, Kenny Loggins. An album of music from the show will be released in the coming months as well. Fun.
My debut solo EP Crooked River Burning will be released in Spring 2014 on the Rockwood Music Hall Recordings label in NYC.
