Nothing But The Blues
Biography - Justin Aron
Diligence and passion for the Blues is what drives Justin Aron and Dirty Pool to be known as one of Winnipeg’s finest ensembles of Blues artists that consistently strive to keep the blues alive locally. Forming the band 12 years ago, Justin’s commitment and love of the Blues goes back further to when he received his first acoustic at 12 years old. By 14 Justin knew to pursue the music running through his veins He needed an upgrade. Justin then traded the 1978 pinto his Uncle gave him, in exchange for his first electric guitar and amp. Since then, there’s no stopping him!
Coming from a musical heritage where his grandparents sang in choirs while his brother and Uncle also played guitar, Justin felt the Blues all around him as he is no stranger to the small towns of Southern Manitoba that has become the fabric of his life. As a result, Justin is able to embrace all music stylings but was heavily influenced by the legends of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Freddie King.
“I still learn from Freddie and Stevie every time I listen to them, and find something new… every time”.
A common thread that drives Justin creatively in his music and lyrics reflects a lot of what he sees with recent problems in society, such as inequality.
Dedication to play and discover different Blues artists inspired Justin to take a musical journey in 2006 as he was able to travel to the heart of the Blues – Chicago, Illinois. There he jammed with many artists and was introduced to Pistol Pete who then later produced the bands’ second album, ‘The Chicago Sessions’
Justin Aron and Dirty Pool love to do what they do best; play Blues music from the soul and entertain people who share the same hunger for Blues.
