Singer-songwriter Aaron Lee Tasjan of New Albany, OH, plucked his first acoustic guitar at a young age. Since then, Tasjan has played with many different bands, including with the one and only New York Dolls; alt-country act Everest; and with Tony Visconti of David Bowie and T. Rex fame. Tasjan recently set out to sunny Los Angeles, CA, to work with Father John Misty to create his most recent album, Silver Tears (New West Records).

On the second day of the Nelsonville Music Festival, Tasjan rocked out solo for the Gladden House audience. He started of his set with the country twang of “Success,” from his most recent effort, and then swung into “Lucinda’s Room” from 2015’s In the Blazes (First of 3 Records) and finished off the performance with a cover of Todd Snider’s “Hey Pretty Boy” from Snider’s 2016 album Eastside Bulldog.
