For those of you fortunate enough to have seen him busking in the streets of Kingston, you’ll be all too aware of the growing phenomenon that is Aaron Norton and deservedly so. He isn’t another fame hungry mediocre singer, nor one of your X-factor wannabe’s, this guy simply has it all.
It hasn’t been a quick road to success either. Aaron’s persistence is key to his outstanding vocals and his natural ability to captivate the audiences that he plays to. It all started in the year 2000, when he first performed live at a school concert. The story may sound cliche but a 15 year old Aaron Norton had his audience stunned to silence with his rendition of “Tears in Heaven” by Eric Clapton. For a boy who hadn’t anticipated such a reaction, this was the first time he believed he had the talent to make his dream a reality.
With a talent for song writing and guitar playing way beyond his years, at the age of 17 Aaron was playing the London circuit. Ranging from the claustrophobic ‘Betsy Trotwood’, to renowned venues such as ‘The Bedford’ and ‘The Half Moon’, he fast became a popular and established singer-songwriter. Live performances on Capital Radio, BBC2 and at the London Palladium merely add to his impressive resume.
Moving forward, Aaron has thrown his passion for performing into establishing himself as a full-time musician. He has become a resident performer in the Kingston-upon-Thames area and his avid fan base is testament to his likeability and unquestionable talent.
