Aaron Douglas /
Aaron Douglas first picked up a guitar at 16 years old. He became hooked and within a week he’d harrassed his parents into purchasing him his first guitar, then without really knowing how to play it, he wrote his first song. From that moment onward, music became a very important constant in Aaron’s life.
Blues rock from Bristol.
