Aiden James is an international singer-songwriter touring behind his new album, the 100% fan-funded "Trouble With This." The 29-year-old Philadelphia native completely engineered, mixed and produced the album, which climbed to number 28 on iTunes Top 100 Charts. Aiden's ability to deliver a powerful live show, paired with his songwriting, arranging, composing and technical skills with work in Logic Pro surely makes him the "new" breed of Songster. This inspired him to start his own record label, "Songster Sounds."
Without the assistance of a publicist, fancy agent or record label, Aiden has harnessed the power of social media, engaging fans and the industry to help bring his music and message into the spotlight.
Aiden's first music video for "On the Run" in 2010 made its television broadcast debut on MTV, LOGO, and VH1, quickly followed by a cluster of blogs and print media. Aiden has also been featured on SiriusXM Radio with selections from previous works and his most recent release, "Trouble With This." A live performance of "Best Shot" from the SiriusXM Headquarters in Rockefeller Plaza can be seen on Aiden's YouTube Page. Following the momentum of his iTunes success, Aiden caught the attention of The Advocate Magazine via Twitter and sat down for a first featured interview with the publication. Big corporations are grabbing onto Aiden as well, like Virgin American Airline. You can hear his music at 30,000ft on board all flights across the globe.
