Aaron Espe Delivers Blackwall Way EP Ahead Of Next Solo Album

Written by:

Minnesota-raised, Nashville, TN-based singer-songwriter Aaron Espe recently released his Blackwall Way EP via the premier Canadian label Nettwerk. The EP is the latest step in Espe’s musical career that has seen him deliver several solo albums, a previous EP, and a string of singles.

Espe has toured across the US and overseas, building up his fanbase one show at a time, usually held in coffee shops, bars, and churches. It’s a low-key approach that the artist also applies to his music. His new single “Yourself” is full of gentle guitar strum, introspective lyrics, and emotionally vulnerable, but plaintive vocals.


About the meaning behind “Yourself”, Espe reveals, “Everyone is google-able. Friends and strangers like our photos, comment on our feeds. We’re rarely disconnected from that part of our identity. I guess, in this song, I was just trying to explore what it means when all that stuff shuts down, and it gets quiet.” 

The troubadour has had his material featured in TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy and The Fosters, and his song “Beyond the Sun” was recorded by the cast of Nashville and aired on ABC. He has also placed his compositions in the film Where the Yellowstone Goes and in numerous TV commercials.

The Blackwall Way EP features covers of four timeless tunes: “In My Room” by The Beach Boys, “Suddenly I See” by KT Tunstall, “Everyday” by Buddy Holly, and “Oh, Pretty Woman” by Roy Orbison.
