Welcome to my PledgeMusic page! I’m Aaron Ellis, an artist formally signed to Warner Brothers in 2006, currently working on my first release as an independent. Being on a major label was a learning experience to say the least! I have been the supporting act for such bands/artists as Bon Jovi, Goo Goo Dolls, Three Doors Down, and Bret Michaels, among others. Throughout my career I have been so fortunate and am extremely grateful for the support of fans worldwide. A few weeks ago I did my first radio interview in over 2 years and over 10,000 of you listened in. I was so touched and completely blown away by this! I am so excited to be in the studio in Los Angeles creating new music for my upcoming album which will be completed in summer 2012.
This is where you come in. I sincerely hope you will join me to make this a successful release. Together we can make this happen!
Funds must be raised to cover expenses such as PR/Press Releases, Radio Promo, Initial touring budget, a music video, even the CD manufacturing itself. Plus, 10% of funds raised (above the target) will be donated to The David Lynch Foundation.
Here’s how it works. You can pledge for any of the exclusive items listed on the right. I’ve come up with some cool things I think you’ll enjoy! From a digital download of the album prior to its official release to having me in your living room singing and telling stories!

So how’s the Album coming along?
The album is about halfway done and it is sounding AMAZING – far beyond what I ever imagined! My producer, David Filice is not only helping me express my best work to date, he has also been there as my friend, always encouraging me, through all the ups and downs I have faced over the past few years! He has worked with so many great artists – Bono & The Edge (U2), David Archuleta, Kris Allen,The Rembrandts, Alex Band (The Calling), Bret Michaels…. to name a few.
So far my producer has brought in world class musicians to play on the album including:
Steve Fekete – guitar (Avril Lavigne, Vertical Horizon, David Archuleta)
Randy Cooke – drums (Five for Fighting, Mick Jagger, Ringo Starr, Kelly Clarkson)
Jason Sutter – drums (Chris Cornell, Vertical Horizon, Our Lady Peace, Pink, Foreigner, Marilyn Manson)
Steve Ferlazzo – keyboards (Avril Lavigne, Nuno Bettencourt)
And there is more to come!
This is “OUR” album! This journey, many of you have been on with me for years, and many of you are just joining the journey now. Join my team, You are my label. This is the new world order in the music industry. This is not about a corporation deciding what you should hear. This is about fans of music helping launch projects they believe in!
