Aaron Bonus on SoundBetter

I write, produce, and top-line for Ultra(Sony),Spinnin(Warner), Armada, and Big Beat(Atlantic) Artists. I am also part of a production company and project called Royal Tongues(10 million + spotify streams). My tracks have been placed in National Commercials(Sprint/Master card),Movies(sisters), and numerous TV shows. Lets get to work!

I was signed with Primary wave/BMG, as an artist/writer with my project Royal Tongues in 2014. I've had a lot of success in the TV/Film world and have no problem aiming in that direction. Royal Tongues has allowed me to share the stage, and tour with Young the Giant, Bleachers, Banks, The Arkells, and many more. Recently, I have started gaining attention for developing new artists and top-lining major labels dance records. Some of the labels I work with include- Ultra, Big Beat and Spinning. I also own and run my own studio, which allows me to become any necessary piece, to complete the track. This includes editing, tuning vocals, song writing,top-ling, and full production.

Here is a full list of up to date releases via Spotify playlist: https://open.spotify.com/user/1223159286/playlist/7g1bFC9Rd1u7WLz9PAwEdq?si=dp96zsR4QB2d6AdN0gVlqg

    I am incredibly pleased with the result of working with Aaron. I had the pleasure of being able to work with him on a weekly basis at his home studio and each session I left feeling like we had made progress. If there was something I had an issue with he would give me time to figure out what it was (because I'm new to this and don't know how to communicate things very well) and then I would come back and he would fix it. He was very easy to talk to and I looked forward to going to each session.

    Aaron is very talented and skilled! He knows what he’s doing and he adds his unique signature to every track he makes. You can tell that he’s passionate about music because you can hear the feeling and emotion in his work. He is also very patient and aims to give you exactly what you want. Very professional:)

He is mad talented and character to match talent is hard to find in this industry and he is top of the charts in both area's. Working with Aaron could take your career to the next level.

    I have worked with Aaron several times in his home studio. He is friendly, professional, and easy to work with. He's also very forward-thinking, and sports an excellent vocal tone for modern music.

    Aaron and I have done several projects together. He produced my latest single and we've done several other projects together. Aaron carries the whole package of a songwriter/singer/producer and is one of the harder working people in our industry.
