Album Notes
"Hope in a Maybe" (2010)
Written by Aaron Espe
Produced by David Welsh
Engineered and Mixed by Matt Henderson
Mastered by Dave Beegle

“Espe wears hats of Damien Rice, John Mayer, and James Taylor without any of the fanfare, arrogance, or preconception. [Songs from a Small Town] is the perfect collection of unknown folk songs. Instantly singable, effortlessly lovable, and incredibly well for the wear.”
Patrol Magazine

“[Songs from a Small Town] transports you into Espe’s world and you will be better off for having visited.”

“[‘My Whole Life’] One of the top 20 CDs we've found anywhere in the last year.”
Intelligent Pop (2006)

“Hearing his music is like the experience of not realizing how thirsty you are until you start drinking....There’s no doubt that this is some of the most gorgeous male folk you’ll hear.”
Tamara Turner, CD Baby

“[His] music is honest and true. A real breath of fresh air in an ocean of superficiality -- with songwriting that reveals the insight of a skilled poet twice his age.”
Ron Craighead, KGLT Radio, MT

Alighting upon the folk music scene in 2005 from the upland wilds of Northern Minnesota, Aaron has begun to garner the attention that one might expect from a significant young talent. His recent plumes include:

-Winner of Four Corners Folk Festival’s 2008 Emerging Artist Contest
-“My Whole Life” a top 20 album for 2006 (intelligentpop.com)
-Featured artist for the 2007 Volkswagen Auto Tour.
-Showcased artist for the 2007 Folk Alliance, Memphis, Tennessee.
-Among the top-ranked unsigned folk artists (myspace.com)

If such a thing as the clichéd “total package” exists then attending one of Aaron Espe’s concerts offers attendees a hint as to what it may be. The beauty of his sound, coupled with the aura of a shy guy, stirs a desire to join the now burgeoning army of Espe’s unpaid publicists.
