SOP's Battle of the Bands Featuring D'Aaron Anthony with Pose (I Like You)

By SOP newswire2

While the majority of artist in the state are myopically focused on putting Arizona on the map ", D`Aaron Anythony`s honest and vivid music clearly stands out. Nurtured by a musical family, D`Aaron Anythony`s love for music started as a hobby when he would bang out beats on pots and pans as a toddler. Thanks to his father, also a musician, the young D`Aaron Anythony (born D`Aaron Anthony Battle) had access to a plethora of musical equipment.

Occasionally, he would risk getting whooped " to play his dad`s Roland drum machine, which was not a toy. " After D`Aaron`s father accepted the young boy`s genuine inclination towards music, he bought him a small drum kit. This gesture would kick off D`Aaron`s life long search for limitless creative expression. Talented, versatile, eclectic, are all words that can be used to describe the music that D`Aaron Anthony makes. He has been labeled The One " by one of his mentors Shogun because of his ability to do everything from write, record, sing, rap, and produce. He is a serious artist who puts forth the effort to master his craft, and is always seeking ways to improve on his craft. He doesn`t talk about who he is, while his actions show who he isn`t. With such a diverse catalog of music and production in his repertoire, each work is a testament to his abilities as an artist. D`Aaron believes that he may have found the perfect equation for great music using his formula.

Blend tracks with east and west coast flavor, top it off with a little bit of old school Sly and The Family, and D`Aaron`s visually descriptive, lyrical content, and you have music that men and women, from all walks of life, young and old, will love. D`Aaron`s fascination with freedom is expressed in every aspect of his being. From his dapper/quirky/finessed fashion sense, to the eclectic grooves that he injects into hip hop, D`Aaron Anythony is a catalyst that keeps the status quo moving. In fact, if one phrase could sum up his artistic endeavors it is this one: I`m not in search of a deal, man; I`m in search of freedom. "

A self-aware and assertive individual, D`Aaron is just as thirsty as the millions of listeners who want to hear music that grows from uninhibited expression and not over-calculated marketing. At the same time, D`Aaron Anythony also understands that freedom can be strangled by both sides of the spectrum, that pressures to be strictly underground are just as suffocating. Overall, with his open-mindedness, D`Aaron`s influence is uncontainable!
