aaron wilhoft is a singer/songwriter based in chicago who attempts to fuse an urban sensibility with a rural roots rock sound in his songs. he succeeds, creating his own brand of midwestern story-rock with candor and swing. i don't know what everyone's temperature is on this but in some ways aaron's work reminds me of bob seger, and to me that is a good thing.
he has a handful of albums available but he has provided me with a sampler to share with you below.
