Hailing from Southern California, Aries is arguably one of the most slept on rising stars out there. He’s part of a new generation of young creatives who have found new methods of reaching out to fans via his popular YouTube channel, where he often recreates mainstream rap beats. Those 370,000+ subscribers have also become loyal fans to his music, helping the 20 year-old artist reach over 700,000 monthly listeners on Spotify.
His debut album WELCOME HOME is a breath of fresh air in an era where our ears bleed from autotune raps, unoriginal and uninspiring braggadocio music that has no emotional connection whatsoever. It’s almost impossible to classify the genre of the 9-track LP as Aries combines grunge vibes from the 90’s and emo music flawlessly over alternative hip hop beats — creating an outstanding genre-bending album.
With lyrical content ranging from depression, substance abuse and relationships, Aries shines throughout WELCOME HOME with introspective lyricism and a melodic vocal performance. Overall, it’s a stellar debut album for an artist that has a bright future in music — remember his name.
