Aaron Smith is an independent artist who had a passion for music at a very early age. Born in Muncie, he started playing by the age of two. Learning very quickly the concept of drumming he was soon playing drums consistently at church by age 6. By the time he was 10, Aaron was recording professionally. That gave him a platform to learn more and stretch his musical abilities. At 18, Aaron was traveling nationally playing for various gospel groups, touring and eventually was given the opportunity to teach drum clinics all over the U.S. Aaron transferred from Berklee College Of Music to Indiana University to finish his college degree in music. It was in that transition where his social media presence began to grow phenomenally and he started to teach what he knew on an international scale.
He has played and recorded for a number of well-known groups and artists including Scott Guynn and Weapons, Brian Reeves & Heart After God, Doobie Powell, the widely popular Williams Singers, Funkyardx, and The Franchize Band. Most recently he served as music director for NBC’s World of Dance. Currently he is producing his first EP which will feature numerous independent artists to pay tribute to his hometown.
Aaron endorses Zildjian Cymbals and Drumsticks, Pearl Drums, Evans Drumheads, GruvGear Cases and Bags, and DrumKubes.
