Soft-spoken with the look of a slightly disaffected 1950s matinee idol, Aaron Frazer possesses a unique voice that's both contemporary and timeless.

On "Introducing", his debut solo album produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, Aaron melds mid-60s soul with Auerbach's particular sensibilities ('Over You'), songs with a message in the key of Gil Scott-Heron ('Bad News'), and uplifting tales of love told through a blend of disco, gospel, and doo-wop ('Have Mercy').

The Brooklyn-based, Baltimore-raised songwriter first came into the international spotlight as multi-instrumentalist and co-lead singer of Durand Jones & The Indications, but he's more than a revivalist act. On "Introducing", Aaron expertly calibrates consciousness-raising and the desire to be enveloped by love.

Where previous records were written in a partial state of turmoil, Aaron's debut LP shows maturation and range. "Introducing" is both loving and gracious, critical without losing hope, and a showcase of a young artist on a seriously soulful ascent.
