Introducing Aaron Sheer and his danceable new song, Work 4 It
It follows up from his debut single U Here earlier this year.
Despite being only two singles into his Aaron Sheer project, it's easy to figure out what he's all about. On his new single Work 4 It (and his debut U Here before it), Sheer combines the worlds of R&B and electronica with an engaging and captivating vocal presence, tinged with this soulful R&B touch that perfectly complements the single's funk-fuelled, dancefloor-ready production. It's a solid start for a musician not quite on everyone's radars just yet, but definitely worth checking out. Dive into Work 4 It below, and get to know Aaron Sheer and his sound a little better before his next joint:
Tell us about yourselves?
I’m a 20-year-old producer/engineer with a background in operatic voice, but my real passion is in making records.
What kinda tunes we talkin’?
This upcoming EP I’d say is best described as alt R&B but reaches from anywhere to funk to EDM club records. A song of the record Falling has a very R&B drum vibe but has these large saw pads that give it a dreamy electronic twist. I really just tried to make something that blends all the genres I enjoy listening to.
The project was produced before it was written, that's usually how my workflow goes. I’ll work on lots of beats and then one day as I’m listening under the right circumstance a song kind of just comes out naturally as far as lyrics go. I had an idea of being distraught in love and wanted to convey that through each song differently, hence the title In All The Wrong Places.
Can you tell us about your new single, Work 4 It?
Work 4 It was made after this girl I was with was putting me through all kinds of trials and tribulations to prove myself to her. I wanted the song to show off that dedication but in a positive way. The production is hard not to dance to, so even though my lyrics are me trying to kiss up to her, and my struggle to win her over, it's still the perfect track to get lit to.
Any shows coming up?
I’ve been working on a new live set with a band and once we are ready to go there will be no stop, but no gigs in the near future.
What’s the rest of the year have in store?
Recently I’ve been engineering and working as a producer for other artists, but I’m always working on making bigger and better things. Right now I’d like to focus on growing as an artist before I release new material.
Where can we hear more of your music?
