Thursday Brewhaha: Aaron Vance
June 9 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Aaron Vance was born on Christmas Day in Amory, MS with undeniable gifts; a talent for writing songs and a voice with which to sing them. He got his first cowboy boots at the age of 4 and began singing in the church his father pastored by the time he was 6.
His truck-driving grandfather doted on his only grandson and Aaron remembers hearing country music sitting beside “Big Daddy” in his green and white crackerbox cab or on his tractor.
The family moved frequently when Aaron was a boy, settling in Mooreville, 6 miles East of Tupelo, when he was 13. Often the “new kid” at school, he was teased by peers for his strong country bias but believes that the experience taught him self-reliance and how to forge his own way.
Aaron graduated from Itawamba Community College in Fulton, MS and spent a year at Ole Miss before striking out on his own. He worked a variety of jobs from men’s store retail to tire factory manufacturing while playing clubs and festivals around North Mississippi.
Aaron began visiting Nashville in 2012 and made the move permanent in August 2014. To date he has recorded and released three LPs, (“Talk of the Town”, 2014, “My Own Way”, 2017 and “Cabin Fever”, 2021), two EPs, (“Country DNA”, 2013 and “Shifting Gears”, 2016), the Mississippi Football anthem, “My Dawgs and My Rebels”, 2014 and “The Dark Wolf Trilogy” (“The Dark Wolf”, “Hillbilly Cat”, “Take Me As I Am”) 2020 for Windy Holler Music.
With his powerful vocal talent and strong personal charisma, Aaron Vance is a compelling musical artist, confident and comfortable in his own skin.
