Washington, DC July 9, 2015 –  Jazz Recording artist and local DC Musician Aaron Myers will be returning to Blues Alley September 9th for two sets 8pm and 10pm. This appearance will mark his second appearance at the nation’s finest Jazz and Supper Club after selling out the venue last year.

“So much has happened to me musically since doing the show there last year” said Aaron Myers. “I cannot wait to express the growth, pain and joy I’ve experienced since being there.  I’ve written new music, created new arrangements, and I have more to share!”

Myers, who came to DC after working as a field organizer on the Barack Obama Campaign in 2008, has decided to make Washington DC his home.  For 5 years he served as the Resident Artist at the Black Fox Lounge where he performed in over 150 shows.  During his time there he recorded his debut album “Leo Rising” being nominated for the Washington Area Music Awards in 3 categories, also making it onto the Grammy Ballot.  Now, he’s completing his sophomore project “The Lion’s Den” which includes fusion collaborations.

“After the Black Fox Lounge closed I sank into a depression.  Then I  reactivated my gym membership at VIDA Fitness, lost 35lbs, reevaluated my career, and got to work” said Myers. “I’ve completed the work for my next album, started filming a documentary about DC Taxi Drivers called “Cab Fare“, and finished my second feature script.  I’m ready to express this through my art with my family, friends, and fans at Blues Alley!”

Voted Best Singer in the Washington City Paper’s “Best of DC” Readers Poll, this year has seen his music being included on Spotify and Pandora!  Earlier this year Myers, along with composer/pianist Oren Levine, released the song “Stand Right” an ode to the DC Metro System.
