Biography

APOS Entertainment presents…


Aaron Young

Rising from the fertile fields of Mississippi is Aaron Young, steeped in the long tradition of the Delta Blues, crooning soul music and guitar-picking in the moonlight.

The twenty-something singer, multi-instrumentalist, producer and writer boasts' the kind of skills
found among only a few in the machine-driven music of today like Alicia Keys and John Legend. For young Aaron, the instrument of his voice combines with his dexterity on the guitar, bass, keyboards, and drums to create a neo-soul/R & B gumbo that celebrates a deep love for his down-home roots.

Born and raised in Bolton, Ms., west of Jackson, Ms., Aaron’s influences include old school soul greats like Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Donny Hathaway, Sly, and Curtis Mayfield. He took a small band on the road to northern California and opened up at various venues throughout the San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkley area for Gerald Levert, Brian McKnight, Bill Bellamy, and Too Short.

The writer of over 200-songs to date, Aaron’s prolific song-writing regimen found another venue when he produced the music for the hit theatrical play, “Glass Slipper Blues”. He also produced the music for up-and-coming local acts like the gospel group Brother Lee, an R & B/pop album for Laurel, and rap albums for Vell aka V-Smuve and Tennessee.

Besides appearing throughout the San Francisco Bay area for crowd pleasing club dates, Aaron has recently returned from a hugely successful invitation-only Los Angeles showcase. Backed by a Grammy-Award winning quartet, A.Y.’s live show takes you from the roof, to the floor, and back again.

In addition to writing and production projects with legendary Bay producers, One Drop Scott and Tone Capone, Aaron has spent much of this year refining exciting new material for his upcoming CD. Aaron has said that out of the literally hundreds of songs that he has written, he is most proud of this collection which combines his unique vocal style with grooves so infectious for which there is no cure!

With the launch of Aaron’s full-blown website (www.aaronyoumgmusic.com)and the major release of his new CD, 2009 is stacking up as a year to remember! All we can say is 'hold tight' A.Y.'s coming!

Dream

Written By: Aaron Young

DREAM

(Hook)
Dream, we dream, these things, the rocks, the ice, the bling, the cars, the cribs and a pocket full of green.

1st Verse
My ice, my crib, my car, these things I’m dreaming for, I know you do the same thing. I know you dream of bling bling. Bahamas were sailing in. Down to Miami and back again. New York we’ll have a shopping spree, its like everything is free.

Hook
Dream, we dream, these things, the rock’s the ice, the bling, the cars, the cribs and a pocket full of green.

2nd Verse
My pockets so fat, Tricked out Cadillac. Nice day 2 take a spin on Dubs with the top droppin. Cruising on my way to the bank. First I gotta stop put some gas in my tank. We’ll go on a shoppin spree its like every thing is free.

Hook
Dream, we dream, these things, the rocks, the ice, the bling, the cars, the cribs and a pocket full of green.

Hook
Dream, we dream, these things, the rocks, the ice, the bling, the cars, the cribs and a pocket full of green.

3rd verse
(Rap)
I dream about youz, hanging out with the stars, Cause you don’t need no cash,
we buyin’ out the bar. And every time we here girl we make it happen,
and every track we drop, baby we keep it crackin’. I chase my dream like Martin
so I can be a King. I ain’t doin’ my job unless you do your thing. I make her move
her body when she hit the dance floor. She love the melody the way we make it drop low,
We get the cash, hit the stash, time to get mo’.

Hook
Dream, we dream, these things, the rocks, the ice, the bling, the cars, the cribs and a pocket full of green.
