About Aaron Partridge

Born in the wild and rugged deep, deep south of Tasmania (birthplace of Hollywood legend Errol Flynn) and raised in the tropical, crocodile infested north of Australia. Aaron has been a performing singer and guitarist for more than 20 years, is a teaching professional, award-winning songwriter, bandleader and producer. Along with his band the Brothers of Redemption, Aaron performs a road-worn blend of blues-rock and country-gospel-soul.

After a lengthy hiatus from performing, Aaron has recently signed with US label Grace Records Nashville and is reintroducing himself to a new audience with new original songs, guaranteed to encourage, uplift and entertain.  Aaron has toured extensively throughout Australia and internationally with several tours of New Zealand and the USA.
