Aaron Rizzo

Rochester, NY

Aaron Rizzo is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and recording engineer born and raised in Rochester, NY. Self recorded, mixed and produced, Aaron Rizzo's debut album "Blck Tee Shrt" hit stores on January 15th, 2017. Since it's release, Blck Tee Shrt has received public acclaim as well as the attention of fans of all genres. Influences range from John Mayer to BJ The Chicago Kid, as he pays respects to genres such as blues, R&B, pop and hip-hop. ​ Aaron Rizzo began his musical career playing in various rock, blues and jazz bands, later graduating into a pursuit of a solo career. Rizzo began playing guitar at the age of nine, later to hunt mastery in other instruments including drums, bass, piano and voice. Aaron Rizzo draws much of his influence not from guitar players, but drummers. Figures like Steve Jordan, Mike Miley and Nate Smith have all made their way into Rizzo's musical works. Much of his music stems from his quiet and observant nature of the human condition. Topics of financial struggle, racial tension, love, hate and mental illness all manifest themselves within the vernacular of his discography. Rizzo strives to never be pigeonholed into one track of music. Breaking "genre" boundaries has always been his main goal, no two songs the same. Always evolving, experimenting and breaking comfort zones. This makes for diverse records and unpredictably great live performances. Rizzo has just released the lead single off his next album. The single is entitled "Where Your Lips Have Been", and breaks into a whole new headspace for Rizzo. It is an accurate teaser of what is yet to come. ​ "Blck Tee Shrt" is available on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Amazon Music and Rizzo's song "Jericho" was featured in the season premiere of Showtime's "Shameless."
