Ab Aaron Abernathy and his live band Nat Turner return to New Orleans to perform records from his newly released DIALOGUE LP, as well as his critically acclaimed MONOLOGUE LP, this time with New Orleans' own CoolNasty and DJ RQ Away warming up the set.
Aaron Abernathy is a pianist/soul singer and multi-talented entertainer. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Abernathy comes from a long-line of historical pioneers including Civil Rights Leader, Rev. Ralph David Abernathy, and student of the same high school music program as the late great Gerald Levert. He joined the ranks of artists like Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack as a graduate from the prestigious music program at Howard University, where he sharpened his vocal abilities and musicianship by majoring in jazz piano.
With outstanding talents as both a pianist and a vocalist, he has acted as musical director for global touring acts like Black Milk, and Slum Village, and collaborated with Grammy-nominated artists including Jack White, The Foreign Exchange, and Eric Roberson. He has also staked his claim as a great solo artist with the release of his solo album Monologue in the fall of 2016, met with critical acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, Bandcamp Daily, Echoes Magazine (UK), Soultracks, and Solange's Saint Heron.
Abernathy has toured the globe as a vocalist and musician with various acts for over a decade, though many first discovered his talents via the 2016 album Monologue--a concept album with themes of love, personal relationships, and family. His new album Dialogue, released in October of 2017, marks a distinctly different conceptual approach, where the artist lays flat his vulnerabilities as an American black man in 2017, discussing hot-button issues of economics, segregation, and racial politics.
He kicks off his 2018 DIALOGUE Tour tonight in New Orleans at Three Keys.
