Aron d’Alesio

In a basement under a commercial development in downtown Hamilton’s Aron D’Alesio set to work each night. Removed from distractions and almost invariably alone he would settle in, focusing on minute details as he tinkered, intent on managing each aspect of performance and tone as he meticulously fit the interlocking layers of his arrangements together piece by piece. The Young Rival singer and guitarist is inspired by early rock’ n’ roll, but his self-titled debut album has also been described being perfectly at home in a David Lynch film soundtrack. It’s beautiful, nostalgic, haunting, and often a bit eerie, all at once. Aron d’Alesio, is set to sway audiences with his washout guitar and ethereal melodies for the first time at NLFB.
