Aaron started playing music in high school, but never sang in front of anyone, and started writing junior and senior year in high school. Although he never actually kept a song that he wrote until right out of college. Van Zandt is the biggest inspiration after going to his uncle’s funeral, but also notes the likes of Steve Earl. He has a passion for writing, but said he borrowed other styles until he found his own, which I can say first hand that he has.
Aaron said he is currently listening to a lot of music but made a point to mention Turnpike Troubadours, James McMurtry, and Adam Carroll. He enjoys playing Cheatham Street Warehouse, but loves to play Gruene Hall as he feels a sense of history there with all of the big names that have played that same stage.
Although many artists don’t get to see many live shows unless they happen to be playing with them, he enjoys Adam Carroll because of his writing, Cory Morrow because of the action packed showmanship and notes that he hopes to be as good as he is.
“I remember Pat Green and Cory Morrow at South Padre Island on stage shot gunning beers….” – Aaron Einhouse
Aaron is preparing to release his second album titled “Hello Road” and said that it is more like the live show, and is about being on the road and songs about the road. The album was produced by Walt Wilkins, with all of the songs written by Aaron, and the melodies done with a blend of Aaron’s and Walt’s bands. (I’m really looking forward to hearing this!!!)
Just on my personal side note, I think Aaron Einhouse is the strongest up and comer in the Texas music circuit. I have seen his live show twice, and the energy is always the same whether there are 300 people or 30 people there. It is evident that he enjoys playing his music, and entertaining people with his passion. If you have not seen a live show, I suggest you get to one. It is packed with humor, energy, and just plain good story telling which is what this music is all about.
