Fall 2021 Submissions OPEN

Aaron Carpenter

Growing up in Louisiana, music was Carpenter’s entire world. Raised on everything from classic country to pop-punk to the Stevie Wonder records his grandmother often spun for him, he took up drumming at age 11, later teaching himself to play piano and guitar. He began posting cover songs in 2015 on Instagram, where he now has nearly four million followers. Ready to share his own original songs, Carpenter headed to Los Angeles in 2016 and soon landed sessions with A-list songwriters.
