Internationally recognized Gypsy-jazz guitarist Aaron Walker’s love of music was first proven at age 6, when he saved his one-dollar-per- week allowance long enough to purchase an electric keyboard. At age 7, his mother found him in tears when his boom box “ate” his favorite Michael Jackson cassette tape. This was also the year that Aaron discovered his lifelong love: guitar.
Since his first gig at a coffee shop at age 13, Aaron’s music career has taken him to nationwide festivals in the U.S. and international performances in Costa Rica, Iceland, and Germany; and televised performances for the Food Network, PBS, and The Everyday Show.
In 2013, Aaron was a featured guest on the Icelandic version of Prairie Home Companion. While having earned two bachelor's degrees and one master's degree in music, Aaron considers his practical education to have come from performing with international guitar heroes, including Joscho Stephan, Bjorn Thoroddsen, Robin Nolan, Denis Chang, Richard Smith, Greg Koch, Dave Beegle and Olli Soikkeli. Aaron continues his studies under the remote tutelage of Gonzalo Bergara, who currently serves as his primary artistic influence.
