Aidan James is a fourteen year old singer/musician from a place steeped in tradition with its culture, music, and dance – Hawaii. The ukulele is part of that tradition and Aidan’s instrument of choice. However, he’s doing something different… Aidan brings the ukulele beyond its traditional Hawaiian roots. Equipped with a looping station and effect pedals, Aidan strives to push the limits of the ukulele by incorporating its distinct sound into a pop/rock/folk sound.
With experience beyond his years, Aidan James first came to recognition when a YouTube video of him performing quickly earned millions of views. Currently, his YouTube videos have collectively over twenty million views. His musical journey has taken him across the US and Japan to include a performance for a crowd of 30,000 people at the NFL Pro Bowl in Hawaii and an appearance in the current CBS hit show “Hawaii Five-0”. Aidan has shared the stage with the likes of the band Train, Jack Johnson, and Mick Fleetwood.
