With roots deep in the music of Nashville, Tennessee. Singer-songwriter Aron Leigh grew up immersed in country music, and the world of songwriting. He began to play the guitar and sing at the age of five, drawing inspiration from all who surrounded his life. He wrote His first song on his Father's (Richard Leigh) old nylon string guitar at the age of 10 years old. The same guitar his father wrote his first song on years earlier at the same age .
As a child, Aron spent a lot of time at various studio's on music row. One in particular (Emerald Studio) that would later prove to be in his future. Spending time with notables early on, such as Harlan Howard, Waylon Jennings, Steve Popovich Sr., Larry Lee, Josh Leo , Alabama, Clint Black, Alan Reynolds, Billy Dean and many others… Aron would later record his own album in that same Emerald Studio building years later (now called Benchmark.)
“When I was a child I grew up watching people play music. It was a very natural way to live for me.
What I didn't realize was that a lot of the people I was exposed to as a kid were going to turn out to be some of my hero’s later. I was raised in the country music industry, and in some cases blessed to be sitting around country music royalty. As a kid I didn't really know, or understand, as most don't, But I knew enough to pay attention".
Aron Leigh's music evokes the sounds of an old songwriters soul, with a smooth rich voice all his own. His powerful vocal range, and colorful pallet of musical stylings, along with rockin’ high-energy songs and emotionally gripping ballads exemplify the versatility that Aron possesses.

“I love being around the great musician/players. It’s always so inspiring and allows me to explore different avenues of my music that I wouldn't be able to do with out them. I am a huge fan of thier hearts, and their talents as well." The session players of Nashville are the backbone of this business, they are often the unsung heros just like the songwriter can often be. It's amazing to get to know them personally. Guys Like Ilya Toshynski, Kenny Greensburg, Adam Shoenfeld, Chad Cromwell, Ben Phillips, Mike Paine, John conley, Dan Dougmore, Craig Young, Russ Pahl, Jimmy lee sloes, Mike Brignardello are some of the great musicians I've been blessed to know and have record my songs.
I have always tried to make it a point to surround myself with musicians that are better than I am. And I’ve been blessed enough to have some of those same people say I inspired them as well, and that’s when the magic can happen. A shared inspiration! Hopefully, as the years and music progress, that will translate into moments that last forever. I guess we'll see won't we?"
