Aaron Myers has performed to audiences in Washington DC for the last six years. Voted runner up for “Best Singer” & “Best Performance Artist” in the Washington City Paper’s “Best Of DC” readers poll, Myers has been heard in Embassies, Night Clubs, Festivals, and Fundraisers. Myers became a DC Staple as the Resident Artist at the Black Fox Lounge (a total of 147 headliner shows) and is now showing the public his other artistic side. A native Texan, Myers decided to make Washington DC his home 6 years ago.
“I love screenwriting” stated Myers. “I wrote my first pilot TV show when I was 13 years old. It was was a situation comedy that I wanted to star three couples. Jack Lemmon married to Shirley MacLaine, Walter Matthau married to Betty White, and Ossie Davis married to Ruby Dee. I wish that it could have been produced, I’m sure it would have been an awesome show!”
Now, Myers is currently filming a new feature documentary with emerging cinematographer Jazmine Kiante
called “Cab Fare
” profiling Taxi Drivers in Washington DC who have been driving more than forty years. Filming began in January and is already crating buzz in the city with appearances from national lawmakers, city officials and people on the street.
Friday, it was announced that the script for his second feature film “Paths at Sunset
” with writing partner Scott Sedar
has now been completed and is now ramping up for production. “This film tells an unorthodox love story of a couple who is approaching the sunset of their lives. Let me just say, life isn’t over after 60…at all!”
