Aaron Embry

[SILENT SIDEMAN] Surely more people have heard Aaron Embry than you might think. More an avid support musician than an acclaimed solo artist, the California-based songwriter began his career backing Willie Nelson and the late Elliott Smith on the road, only to later become Edward Sharpe’s touring pianist. His exquisite 2012 album, Tiny Prayers, snaked under the radar, quietly pirouetting with melodic tenor guitar and jazzy piano ballads that speak to his past collaborations. There’s a calming fragility to his voice, one often interrupted by short bursts of old-time harmonica and mandolin, giving his heartbreaking songs an endearing quality few can replicate with such nonchalance.
