Aaron Avis is a hip-hop and pop artist from Minneapolis, Minnesota. His sound is a meld of Emo Trap formulas with Gothic Rock landscapes. Influences like Juice WRLD, Trippie Redd, The Cure, and Type O Negative blend into a sound that is booming, upbeat, and atmospheric. His whole life, Aaron has struggled with trauma, chronic depression, and a panic disorder.
After losing himself to an emotionally abusive relationship, he started to find himself for the first time. He moved out and started addressing the trauma that choked out who he was. Through this Aaron found the goal for his music: to provide a safe space for trauma and emotional abuse.
Aaron has released one project, "Erin," which is a concept album about coping with his panic disorder. He has been consistently releasing singles since, leading up to his next project "Gabriel." Aaron has spent the last three years playing gigs in Minneapolis, including venues such as The Cabooze, Honey, Palmer's, Can Can Wonderland, and Part Wolf.
