Aaron Berger & The Blue Stars have spent the fall and winter recording a new album, “On Healing Ground,” with local producer Joe Lapinski. Aaron and the band are thrilled to be debuting much of this new work at the 2017 ITS Festival!


Aaron Berger & The Blue Stars were formed while creating their 2013 release “”Colour & Light.”” The band has been pared down to four core members and the focus is on crafting memorable songs played with heartfelt emotion leaving a lasting impression on listeners. In the summer of 2016 the band toured southern Ontario, woodshedding new material and will be releasing their forthcoming album “”On Healing Ground”” in 2017.

“Singer-songwriter Aaron Berger is best described as having the same stylistic qualities of songwriter giants Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Gordon Lightfoot. He is prolific with his approach to words and music and leaves stunning images while listening to his songs. His songs and vocal performance are captivating and will embrace you the same way that Jim Croce, Cat Stevens and James Taylor songs did when they first came on the scene in the early 1970s. Aaron is a modern-day troubadour with a tremendous amount of dignity.” -Rick Rose, Sony Music Staff Writer, Tangerine Music Group President
