Purchase Aaron's newest CD of original music, "Warming Up" featuring the inspiring artwork of wine artist Thomas Arvid on the CD cover. "Warming Up" is inspired by Aaron's love for wine and the way wine brings people together to share friendships and create memories. This CD includes 6 original songs and Aaron's and guitarist/producer Tim Ellis' arrangements of Django Reinhardt, Beatles, and Led Zeppelin songs.
Performances and collaborations with local musicians throughout Southeast Asia, Europe and the South Pacific have been the main inspiration behind Aaron Meyer's original music that combines world, orchestral progressive rock, and classical styles. "Warming Up" is inspired by Aaron's love for wine and compliments the numerous wine festivals and events at which Aaron and guitarist/producer Tim Ellis regularly perform.
Aaron believes the best part about wine is sharing and creating memories with friends. Aaron and Tim would like to thank wine artist Thomas Arvid for his inspiring artwork featured on the CD cover, and Ronni Lacroute at WillaKenzie Estate for inviting us to record two classical pieces at their winery in beautiful Oregon wine country, only thirty minutes from Aaron and wife Renee's home in Portland.
