“About Her” - Aaron Pollock | Review

I love this pop with a splash of country flair and singer-songwriter magic. Aaron Pollock just released a great little love song that you need to check out.

Little love song - I misspoke, this is straight-up anthemic. Calgary-based singer/songwriter, Aaron Pollock, has branched out from country-based music into the wider world of pop. His new single, “About Her,” embraces the beauty of having a fire lit inside of you by someone who just rocks your world. I mean, if you are looking for a good song for that pop culture “cuffing season” this might be it for you. I mean, if my partner doesn’t see me like this I don’t want it.

There is something so sweet and fun hearing about this sort of crush that just makes your head spin.

Upbeat acoustic guitar and percussion heavy melodies are coupled with lyrics that celebrate that individual for whom words don’t even come close to describing.

Pollock collaborated with co-writers Lydia Sutherland and Chris Yurchuck to really capture how special the person who inspired this song is.

“Doesn’t need a neon to make her shine, she’s a little more New York at night. That city don’t sleep, neither do I.”

Aaron Pollock is a country singer-songwriter who has a knack for bringing a punch of pop

and a seductive groove to a well-written country song. Pollock’s debut single “Nothing Much These Days” was recorded at OCL Studios and released in May, 2018. Since then, the song has reached over 175,000 streams on Spotify. Pollock will be releasing new music in 2020 produced by JUNO award-winners Spencer Cheyne and Justin Kudding.

In January 2019, a song that Pollock co-wrote (“All Over It” - Ben Chase) hit #1 on the

iTunes country chart. He has also written extensively with CCMA nominated duo Leaving

Thomas, having co-written four tracks on the duo’s sophomore album (released in May,

2019). Pollock has also secured cuts on various projects by artists including The Prairie

States, Mariya Stokes, Alex Hughes, and Devin Cooper. This year, Pollock was one of 12

artists selected to participate in “Project WILD”, an Alberta-based development competitionmwith a grand prize of $100,000.

Pollock spent 2018 honing his craft as an entertainer, performing more than 150 times for

audiences of all sizes. In addition to musical residencies at Hy’s Calgary and The Fairmont

Banff Springs, Pollock opened for various headliners including Jann Arden and Brett Kissel.

Pollock has also performed at numerous events during CCMA week, and in 2017, was a

finalist in Ole’s “On the Spot” artist development competition. In 2017 he was also

recognized by the Nashville Songwriters Association as “One to Watch” in 2017.
