Raised between the US and Trinidad and Tobago, Aaron Fresh is a genre-defying combination of West Indian and American culture.
Born in Illinois, he was sent to live with her grandmother in Arima, Trinidad, where he was primarily raised.
During his stay in the country, Aaron Fresh learned to appreciate dub, reggae and calypso music and was inspired by Jamaican acts like Buju Banton and Sizzla.
Signed to producer Nick Cannon’s Island NCredible Entertainment and Def Jam, the teenager’s first single “Spending All My Time” peaked at number 38 on the US Top 40 and at number four on iTunes Top R&B Chart. A second single called “Dirty Girl” was also a hit.
