Aaron Burnham keeps the country troubadour tradition of Johnny Cash and Hank Williams alive with his original tunes and cowboy croons. With his backing band the Brushfires, Aaron will be sure to put some western swing in your step.  Drawing on jazz standards, rockabilly, honky-tonk, and even a lil’ classical music, Aaron Burnham & the Brushfires conjure up a fresh but familiar sound.  Echoing Marty Robbins & Buddy Holly, Aaron brings a rich, golden tenor voice not often heard in today’s country music. 

Aaron originally hails from Livermore, California, a humble cow-town on the outskirts of the bay area with a rich history of rodeo, science, and winemaking.  After many years of singing in choirs, studying classical music, playing in rock’n’roll bands, and working at a college radio station, his diverse musical influences brought him into the world of country music.  His songs take the listener from the old west of silver screen cowboys to the honky-tonks of post-war Nashville, while themes of love, family and togetherness pervade his lyrics.

Joined by guitar virtuoso Jamie Duncan, upright bassist Erich Schickenberg, and drummer Charlie Knote, the Brushfires conjure a red-hot ensemble sound that keeps toes tapping and hips moving.  Their sound is equally at home at a swing-dance night, a chili cook-off, a rock club, or a concert hall.  

Katy and the can’t hardly playboys: Country from the California coast that pays homage to the classic sounds of the 50s and 60s- perfect for a night out dancing!
