Portentous classic rock artist ‘Aza Brown’ from Chesterfield will delight you with his brilliant song (first of many!) ‘The Way That I Roll’ on air in the Formula Indie the November 19th
“Ever wondered who you might have been if you hadn’t chased your dreams?”
Barack Obama was an Ice-Cream Scooper, Beyonce was a Hairdresser, Harry Styles was a Baker, Steve Buscemi was a Firefighter, David Bowie a Butcher’s Delivery Boy…
When Aaron “Aza” Brown parted company with seminal 00’s Indie Band – The Chasers – he became so disillusioned with music that he turned his back on the profession altogether for over 15 years!! In the Interregnum, he retrained and worked as an English Teacher, and incredibly – taught himself Indonesian and forged a new life as an Art Dealer between the UK and Bali.
In the “Indian Summer” of his youth though, thankfully, he’s decided to take the plunge and returns to music with a song about self-belief, gratitude and courage – “Optimism personified” according to David McPhie (Joe Cocker, Free, Pink Floyd).
The infectious lyrics “Maybe you will, maybe you won’t” – relate to Aza’s deliberating whether to come back to what he loves, and leave his past lives behind. With his 5th single, Aza hopes to inspire people to follow their own dreams – whatever they might be.
New single “The Way That I Roll” recalls The Doors and The Small Faces at their most playful, with sun-soaked harmonies to boot, and an irresistibly catchy chorus that you’ll likely be singing for the rest of the day
