Aron Scott, a Summerside musician has released his debut album EARTHQUAKE.
At an early age Aron Scott was exposed to music beginning with an Elvis Presley record. By the time he was six he had discovered KISS, Alice Cooper, Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple. His fate was sealed and a rock rebel was born.
Fast forward many years, many songs, many scars, stories and tattoos later. Dues paid again and again, mile after mile underfoot, a guitar in one hand and a tattoo machine in the other, the idea was born. There was to be an earthquake. A big one.
EARTHQUAKE has what Aron describes as “all the snarl and glory of the best 1970’s arena rock…EARTHQUAKE, however, is not a retro record or an imitation of days-gone-by, but a modern collection of hard rock-n-roll songs that are imbued with a much longed for spirit so lacking in much modern music.”
All songs on the CD are written by Aron Scott except “No Mercy” by Scott and Stephane Bouchard. The album is produced by Aron Scott, engineered and mixed by James Carrier, recorded at Reggie’s Recording Place, and mastered by Bill Swazlowski for Ventura Digital Audio, Montreal. Musicians on the CD are Aron Scott (guitar, vocals), Stephane Bouchard (bass), Yves Arsenault (drums), Reg Ballagh (percussion), Karen Penton, Vincent Bernard, Mike Gallant, Yves Arsenault, Stephane Bouchard and Aron Scott (backup vocals). Photography is by Mike Gallant with graphic design b Brant Johnston.
Hard copies are available at independent record stores, Aron’s tattoo shop, and Artist’s Ink. Download on CD baby, iTunes Amazon mp3, Google play, Slacker radio, Spotify and most streaming and download music sites.
