Aaron J. Shay
Indie singer-songwriter Aaron J. Shay is a Pacific Northwest native living in Seattle, where he’s been raising a ruckus on banjo and ukulele since 2011. His foot-stomping songs showcase a unique brand of lyrical craftsmanship, as well as an affinity for literature, technology, and science fiction. With an earnest and charismatic style of performance, Shay blends his songs with storytelling, instigating upbeat sing-alongs that leave audiences delighted and inspired.
A graduate of WWU’s drama program, Shay is also intermittently active in Seattle’s theater community, working as musical director on such projects as Outdoor Trek, or Cafe Nordo’s “Pressure Cooker” Program. You can also find him gigging around town with one of his various musical projects (The Mongrel Jews, The Pickpocket Revue, et al) or busking at the Ballard Farmer’s Market.
Artist Support Program 2017: Produce Apocalypse Songs, an album of 10 songs that are part of the theatrical show of the same title.
