Twenty-five-year-old Aaron Schembri began performing around Melbourne in his first local pub band at age 15. By 17 he had started performing with and developed a close relationship with the late Ross Hannaford of DADDY COOL. He’s gone on to perform with many of the featured guests listed above whom he invited to play on his debut album ‘City Lights’.
In 2015 Aaron began recording ‘City Lights’, consisting of nine original songs and an old Robert Johnson blues cover – Come on in My Kitchen. Highlights of the album are a tribute to Aaron’s late grandfather Fred Schembri; the first ever duet between Russell Morris and Colleen Hewett; and a tribute to the late great Australian guitarist Ross Hannaford, who mentored Aaron through the early stages of his career.
