Hailing from the small mountain community of Bodfish, California, Joshua Wade Aigner is, if anything, proud of his roots. They guide his personal values and inspire his songwriting, in which he tries to capture the humble, blue-collar, family-centered upbringing that he was afforded. In Aigner's words, his songs are the life he leads. He has since moved to the big city, where his music has embodied what he feels to be a new Bakersfield Sound. His music is influenced by a wide range of artists, from the legends of Marvin Gaye, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marshall Tucker Band, The Allman Brothers and Led Zeppelin, to the honest songwriting of contemporary artists like Eric Church, Gary Allan, Jamey Johnson and Ryan Bingham. While staying true to the traditional country music he grew up listening to, Aigner is driven to find his voice--true, real, soulful country. In December 2016, he released his debut album titled "Kern," a nod to the Kern River Valley where he grew up. You can find the album at any digital media marketplace.
