about

Aaron's EP, 'Letters to Jonny', is a bold and striking debut which reflects an eclectic upbringing consisting of Alt Rock, Jazz and Pop. When it all merges as one, her distinctive breathy vocals and delicate melodies form a unique, textured wall of sound that feels substantially more than the sum of its parts.

The London songstress describes the E.P. as a conceptual work. The songs are letters addressed to a fictional man, a consequence of the writer’s imagination. The relationship with this character unravels as the record progresses.

'Letters to Jonny', contains five songs on which Aaron collaborated with some of the industry’s brightest upcoming writers and producers. Mark Tieku (Tieks) has previously written and produced for Florence + The Machine, The XX and remixed Rudimental, whilst Toby Davies has worked with Maverick Sabre, Sinead Harnett and George the Poet. Niall Lavelle has recently signed to Raffertie’s Super Recordings label under the moniker ‘Fallen’. Brey released his much lauded debut EP, Brasil, in 2012 and co-wrote on Jessie Ware's debut album Devotion.

Track Name: Strong
Time is an empty space
We got to fill it with ourselves
And love, and love is a vacant face
You got to know which one to help

From afar I hear you
It sounds just like you're falling down
Feet will not touch the ground
Not while I'm around

You better believe we'll be going strong
Now you are with me I'll never treat you wrong
Everyone wants a part of you and me
Oh, they've got it wrong
We're going strong

I know you're a real hero
I can see it in your smile
I'm cool, I'm cool just to take it slow
Even though that's not my style

From afar I hear you
It sounds just like you're falling down
Feet will not touch the ground
Not while I'm around

You better believe we'll be going strong
Now you are with me I'll never treat you wrong
Everyone wants a part of you and me
Oh, they've got it wrong
We're going strong
Track Name: Holding Water
There's the sweetest scent of you
Staying in my room
The shadow of your smile
Won't leave me, I can tell
I'm under your spell

With no way to hide it
I don't want to fight it
When you're here
I've no fear
Only that you will disappear
Please help my condition
I'm in submission
What should I do to be with you

Feels like you are a wave
I cannot ride
And all that I do is to know that
You'll be lying by my side
I'm praying that
Your mind sometime will grow
To have me as your own
Loving you
It feels just like I'm holding water

Open your eyes wide
Let me dive inside
You'll see it's high tide

There's no way to hide it
I don't want to fight it
When you're here
I've no fear
Only that you will disappear
Please help my condition
I'm in submission
What should I do to be with you

Feels like you are a wave
I cannot ride
And all that I do is to know that
You'll be lying by my side
I'm praying that
Your mind sometime will grow
To have me as your own
Loving you
It feels just like I'm holding water
Track Name: Borderline
It's been 21 days and I can't reach you
There's no way to escape even if I wanted to
Surely I should be feeling better
Surely I could be feeling wise
Sure it should come just a little later
The hurt that stays inside

We don't have to run
We don't have to take our time
We don't have to hide
This world is Yours & Mine
'Cos it feels good
At least it felt good
To cross the borderline

I only wanted to know
Why you let it all go
And left my love,
Surely I should be feeling better
Surely I could be feeling wise
Sure it should come just a little later
The hurt that stays inside

We don't have to run
We don't have to take our time
We don't have to hide
This world is Yours & Mine
'Cos it feels good
At least it felt good
To cross the borderline
