Album Notes
Aaron Booth is a Canadian indie-pop singer-songwriter based in Calgary. He has released four albums. His debut, Transparent, quietly climbed its way up radio charts and onto critic's top ten lists in 2002, leading to a move to Toronto, national tours and a deal with Endearing Records, who released Our Last Escape in 2004 and IPX4 in 2005.

Since then Aaron's music has taken him to Europe, Japan, USA and back to Canada to work with musicians from Arcade Fire, The Weakerthans and Wooden Stars. Extracurricular activities include playing bass for Toronto band Lake Holiday; Pigeonbooth, a collaboration with Calgary's Woodpigeon; and recently covering Hello Mary Lou for a Ricky Nelson tribute released by US label, Planting Seeds Records.

Aaron's latest album, Back Stories, was released on March 29th , 2008. “Back Stories, is a true beauty worth taking to heart and doubtless evidence of Booth's place as the city's finest singer-songwriter.” (Calgary Herald, Feb 2008)

ghost, tremble in the long run

Chrisr at CD Baby

These 10 breezy tunes, chiming with jangly guitars, awash in reverb and waves of Beach Boys harmonies, form the perfect life soundtrack for sun-drenched souls who are dreading the end of summer. Beautiful currents of melancholy and nostalgia gently mix on this stellar slacker-pop album from Canadian singer/songwriter Aaron Booth. There is a relaxed, subtle energy to his smoky acoustic guitar songs. And Aaron’s lilting voice effortlessly delivers lines that are filled with poetic simplicity, both dreamy and conversational. The melodies float atop a miniature bed of tasteful lo-fi ornamentation. But I could just as easily imagine these tunes being sung at a beach bonfire beneath the stars, just a voice and guitar, and they would lose none of their power. “Back Stories” will surely please any fan of Nada Surf or Badly Drawn Boy. It has echoes of John Lennon’s sentimental side, too. Gentle and light, but not without a bit of bite.
