Aaron Camper & Black Alley w/ DJ J Tyler @ The Howard Theatre
$15 / $20
Aaron Camper Charismatic, stylish, and one of a kind, singer/songwriter Aaron Camper is traveling the world and capturing the hearts of fans along the way. You can hear Camper’s sultry voice all over the spectrum from sharing the stage with major acts like Justin Timberlake and Chris Brown to the opening theme music for The Queen Latifah Show. As a writer, Camper has worked with a myriad of artists like Jill Scott, David Guetta, Diddy Dirty Money and Eric Roberson to name a few. His work has landed on GRAMMY-nominated projects and given him opportunities young artists dream of. But it’s his solo artistry that sets him apart from the rest. Camper teamed up with BASSic Black Entertainment (BBE) to release his 2011 mixtape “Welcome to My World,” which received attention from both fans and the industry alike. Since then, he has yielded singles like “Madness” and the PJ Morton penned “My Heart” that have gained major traction and buzz on the blogs. As he puts the finishing touches on his upcoming, LP, Aaron has continued to travel and perform. A seasoned performer well beyond his years, something special happens when he takes the stage. From his original songs to his eclectic take on covers, it’s evident from his first note that you’re in for something real. “Nothing contrived, just infectious, raw, energetic, good music,” Aaron explained in a recent interview. The makings of a big star from a small town, Camper grew up in Salisbury, MD. The soulful singer is the son of a preacher and has been around music all his life. Evident in his ability to not only sing and write, but to also play guitar and drums. It was the influence of artists like The Winans, Phil Collins, Al Green, and many others that sent Camper on the path to become such a dynamic, well-rounded artist and performer. A fly on the wall of historic studios like Larry Gold’s in Philadelphia to singing background with Tye Tribbett, one of gospel’s biggest stars, Camper worked his way up. He paid dues where he could and the culmination of his hard work is coming full circle. The new music will take fans deeper into his world. Exploring, creating, and trusting his musical instincts, Camper is more ready than he’s ever been to shake up the musical landscape of the industry. Black Alley BLACK ALLEY has been pushing the art of music to its rhythmic limits for some time now. Determined to create a unique musical elixir, BLACK ALLEY has taken the finest ingredients of funk, hip-hop, soul and rock to create their own genre-bending sound called “Hood Rock”. The band is one, each musician surrendering to the union of sounds, each delivering music from their soul, while in dialogue with one another through their instruments. Each member of this collective is essential to the workability and funkability of the unit, which is BLACK ALLEY. BLACK ALLEY is one of the most followed, trendsetting and sought-after music groups hailing from the nation's capital. With endorsements from national recording artists such as Grammy Award nominee Raheem DeVaughn, Hip Hop standouts Common, Big KRIT & Wale, and legendary musicians Doug E. Fresh and Sheila E, Black Alley is untouchable, striving to rock harder and heavier each time they unite and contribute to the greater good of music.
