ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Aaron Nazrul is one of Vancouver's brightest emerging musical talents, a world traveler and folk singer with the voice of a future classic. Aaron's music captures the raw emotion of Ben Harper and the cultural diversity of Manu Chao, with a unifying philosophy inspired by the poet Nazrul: "I don't belong to just this country, this society. I belong to the world."

Aaron first performed his music internationally at the Edinburgh Festival in August 2007, winning critical acclaim and the hearts of fans from all over Europe. He was hailed as "the Golden Voice of the festival" by Festival FM, who frequently invited him to perform songs live on the radio.

Known to his friends as Aaron Ross, Aaron got the nick-name Nazrul when he was living in Montreal for a year as part of his travels. His Bangladeshi friends said he reminded them of Kazi Nazrul Islam, the "Rebel Poet of Bangladesh", so Aaron took it as his singing persona.

The debut album from Aaron Nazrul, "Butterfly Man", is set for release on December 4th from Lit Fuse Records. Aaron wrote the album while traveling in Southeast Asia, riding his motorbike around Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, China and Thailand. The local flavours and impressions from each culture have been absorbed into the song-writing, creating a record that is deeply personal but also 'of the world', a journal of life's constant metamorphosis. "Butterfly Man" is a slang term in Asia for a restless soul, someone who constantly moves from place to place, or from person to person. The title track says it all: "Today I'm yours, but tomorrow when I'm gone, you'll understand."

Butterfly Man
Saw the video of "When the Night" while on Westjet flying between Toronto and Vancouver and immediately wrote down the artist name. I'm so glad I did - thanks for the introduction to a diverse new artist. Sweet sweet vocals that move the shoulders while a great reggaesque beat gets the hips moving. What fun! Keep it up!
