Music Video Monday: Aaron James


Today's Music Video Monday takes it all back home.
"I feel like to some people in Memphis, I'm seen as 'that kid from Pennsylvania', but I don't think anybody actually knows what that means," sats Aaron James. "Pennsylvania is very different from Memphis, and sometimes I worry about how my music will resonate with people that have grown up in this city, when a lot of my inspiration comes from the rural area I grew up in, and being in that nature."

James—with a little help from his friends and his father—shot the video to "Ends/Means" last December while visiting his family. He and his friends hike through the bucolic environs of Amish country, build a fire, and catch up. "It's just us being us. Intentionally not fancy, because I just want people to see what it means to be me. It's a very raw insight into my home, friends, and life, and because of that it's very special to me.”
