In a culture where narcissism is bringing the idea of sacrificial love to it's knees, Aaron reminds us that we are not alone in today's struggles and encourages each of us to "carry each other's burdens". Aaron shares this serious message by means of some serious rock! Produced by lead guitarist for worship leader, Charlie Hall, and Passion worship artist, Kendall Combes, ASHES incorporates thick, hard hitting guitars with a tasty side of electronica and full, live strings as well as strong vocal work by Aaron to bring the listener a real and intense listening experience. Aaron is no stranger to experiencing the mercy and grace of a loving God. Aaron shares that he was raised in a broken family and a home that did not honor nor fear God. Only by the grace of his Heavenly Father did he receive Jesus Christ as his Savior at the age of 16. He also shares that even though he received Jesus as a teen, he had still experienced enough life without the influence of Christ for the world to plant destructive seeds deep into his life. His is a walk that is crowned with victories as well as deeply bruised by the struggle to overcome his weaknesses. In this life there is no end to the struggle between light and darkness, but the fight can be less burdensome if we as believers are willing to struggle together, with the help of our Defender and Comforter! The desire to share this message of hope and grace as well as get in your face with some solid rock is Aaron's inspiration for ASHES!
