Brand New legend in the making: AARON KEYLOCK

Once again Ive discovered a absolutely BEYOND bonza prodigiously talented teenager...the one the only AARON KEYLOCK

Aaron  picked up the guitar aged 8 and by the age of 11 he was rocking the clubs in his hometown, Oxford. ....His already a young road rock warrior with hundreds of shows under his belt; at age 12 he got adept at arguing  with club door knobs  who wouldn’t let him into venues he was playing at, 
By the time he was 13 years old he was playing every night of the week and met  Joe Bonamassa who gave the young Aaron some sage  advice from Joes  time as a teen guitar hero; 

at 16 he supported one of my personal favourites, Blackberry Smoke on their ‘Leave A Scar’ UK tour...Since then, he has gone back on tour with Blackberry Smoke for the 2016 ’Like An Arrow’ tour, been on the road with The Answer, The Cadillac Three, The Graveltones among others

His album highlights a fantastic  young British rock talented axe slinger 
Aaron reflects; “Just One Question was probably the first song I ever wrote when I was 13. Musically and lyrically it was just a blues song and it’s funny to think it’s still with me and that I’ve been playing it for almost 5 years!” 

“Against the Grain was penned about 3 years ago now and has grown on the road; I had a Led Zeppelin style riff, mixed it with some Johnny Winter vibe and stamped my own style on it.”

Crowd favourite tune Medicine Man was the first song he ever demo-ed 
he invoked Rory Gallagher on All The Right Moves, its a lightning rocker that’s fast becoming a crowd favourite.

“I guess what I’ve always loved about Rock n’ Roll is that you’re free to express yourself in many ways and to use many guitar techniques to convey different emotions…My influences really vary!” he adds......Things have been building momentum and in Cut Against The Grain, Aaron Keylock is set to launch himself on the world full throttle.
