THE INSPIRING AARON LYRD

Aaron Lyrd is a man who overcame enormous adversity and has become a one man band writing and recording everything from guitar to percussion to vocals.   He has a huge fan base on myspace and he is catching attention of promoters.

After contracting transverse myelitis in 2004, which causes swelling in the spine, and suffering a stroke from a blood clot, Aaron was paralyzed. Through determination and arduous work, he regained the use of his arm, and started writing poetry, which eventually led to music. In 2010 and Lyrd has quickly become a dramatic force in the alternative rock scene.

Who were your early music inspirations?
 
David Bowie, Matchbox 20, and, in part, The Beatles.

How would you classify your music?

Alternative, with some soft rock and punk mixed in.

Aaron Lyrd “Just Wasting Time” MP3:

SKOPE IT HERE!

You went thru so much with contracting transverse myelitis and the subsequent stroke, you are truly an inspiration.   Tell me how it changed your life and influenced your music.
 
Going through having transverse myelitis and having a stroke made me rethink my life and realize the my minimal aspirations to work in a mail room for the P.A. state government needed to be improved as well as that I needed a true sense of direction in my life.

Tell me about your cds and new projects you have?

I’m currently working on three different albums, which were at different stages of completion when the two separate record labels that signed me got involved. First there’s two albums through Team Mash’N, a branch of Universal. They are titled Just Wasting Time and I Did It My Way. The second one is named after my single that is by far my best selling track right now. The third album is a self titled album, with 13 tracks that is being released a little later this year by Tate Music Group. I also have 9 Japanese animation or anime music videos that have been made entirely by the promotion company, Breaker Entertainment: http://www.myspace.com/breakerentertainment . Finally I have a poetry book that is coming out in October of 2012. It features all of my poems that were never made into songs.
 
What would you like people to get from your music?

I want them to go away feeling thoroughly entertained. In general, as long as they don’t try to use it as an excuse for violence, such as Helter Skelter or what Limp Bizkit’s song titled Break Stuff was at Woodstock ’99, I’m happy with people simply feeling entertained by my music. On a side note, I’m slowly becoming a big Beatles fan through regularly listening to their mp3’s whenever I go on long family road trips. In that regard, I mean them no disrespect to them and my song titled, Orange Ambition, had a very positive and strong Beatles influence.
 
What would you like to be doing 5 years from now?

I’m hoping for my two full length albums that are being released through Team Mash’N/Universal later this year to both go platinum once each. Otherwise, I would like to see myself still being happy and healthy by then.

    I recently heard through a reliable source that he is presently in the hospital on life support.

    As I understand, from doing some research and asking a lot of questions, “Orange Ambition” was taken off of iTunes within 24 hours of when Solvents requested that it be two years ago. Put the beef to rest.

    Everybody just needs to stop harassing Aron Lyrd. I recently heard through a reliable source that he is presently in the hospital on life support.

    As I understand, from doing some research and asking a lot of questions, “Orange Ambition” was taken off of iTunes within 24 hours of when Solvents requested that it be two years ago. Put the beef to rest. Anything more, is only speculation. This is exactly like beating a dead dog and that can make it no more or less of a carcass……

    Everybody just needs to leave the unfortunate Aron Lyrd alone. I go to the same college as him and I can definitely tell you that he IS disabled. I looked around. (on the web) He has apparently taken down all the song(s) from all online mp3 retailers quite a while ago. He needs a chance to get his own life together. Come on guys, no more of this “lynch mob mentality” out to ruin his passable reputation. He has, in fact had over 9 real books published, as he has told me.
    http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/apoetsjourney . I believe that he is a talented individual who deserves dignity and respect. Forget about his slip up of plagiarizing a song or two (&taking them down immediately when asked to). Nobody’s perfect. He’s just trying to get his life together, after his life altering injury a few years ago. Let the guy be. I see him at our local church half a mile from the college every Sunday. He’s a really a decent guy, so please leave him alone. I’ve even seen death threats towards him on Solvents facebook page. That’s when I knew that it was getting to be way too much. He messed up, yes. You don’t figuratively smash a cinder block into somebody’s face, just for running a stop sign, do you? Of course not!

    He has replaced all of his cover songs with ten original tracks. Don’t worry Nigel, your copyrighted material is safe. : )

    It sounds like lies. I can’t find some Aron Lyrd on facebook, Twitter, iTunes, etc.

    Aaron Lyrd (if he exists) is a fraud who stole one of my best friend’s songs. I have a hard time believing his triumph over adversity when the material he is promoting is STOLEN. He is making money on Amazon and iTunes with music he DID NOT write or record. This message needs to get out!
