Out of the woods of Mabou, a town that beats in the musical heart of Cape Breton, comes the soulful, ever captivating, Americana singer Aaron MacDonald. It’s this small-town lifestyle that inspires songs for this ECMA nominee. Aaron’s matured blend of country and rock, all lovingly leaning towards roots and blues, carries the feel of familiarity while experiencing new songs for the first time. The authenticity of MacDonald’s live performances is magically captured as he lays out his life’s story with each song. His music comes across as something between the rhythmic soul of Nathaniel Rateliff mixed with the superb simplicity of John Prine. 

Named as one of CBC Music Searchlight’s Top 100 Emerging Artists, back to back album nominations for NSMW 2022 Americana/Bluegrass Recording of the Year and NSMW 2023 Americana/Bluegrass Recording of the Year, with spots at the 2023 Stan Rogers Folks Festival and Halifax Urban Folk Festival, this seasoned songwriter is making his mark.
