Introducing… Aaron Martyn
13-year-old Aaron Martyn has already made a sacrifice to pursue his passion for music. He was scouted at 9 years old and played for various clubs including Tottenham Hotspurs, Charlton Athletics, Fulham, and Leyton Orient, all by the age of twelve. One day while sitting in his Dad’s studio (Darren Martyn/DM Unsigned) Aaron (12 years old) plucked up the courage to tell his Dad he loves singing. After singing Miguel’s ‘Adorn’ Darren saw something and began developing Aaron weekly. They spent time recording, writing, vocal coaching and experimenting. 8 months later Aaron released his cover version of ‘Drake – One Dance’ stacking up over 120,000 views. There was an instant reaction and the hype began to build.
On his 13th birthday Aaron released his 1st free download EP ‘Thirteen’ on Soundcloud and Spotify. The debut record ‘Tears Don’t Dry’ was premiered on Link Up Tv and made a stamp on the UK scene.
Recently Aaron teamed up with Eastenders Star Maisie Smith to do a 5 date school tour, covering 10 schools and delivering 20 shows. Social media stats doubled and the engagement became even stronger. Coupled with that success, Aaron Martyn just signed a deal with Defenders Ent (ironically the label who had such an involvement with his first cover record ‘Drake – One Dance’).
Aaron Martyn has now finishing his next EP ‘From The DM To The DM’ with Darren Martyn (Producer/Manager, pushing his current single ‘Slide Into My DM’ featuring CKay and Skarz and he has teamed up Coalition Talent Agency.

“When I first heard this I immediately thought ‘This is not marketed at me. Fact.’ It is for a younger demographic. However, I do respect Aaron’s enthusiasim and he is fortunate enough to have a lot of support around him including his father Darren Martyn. The music industry is very strong business and he should maintain the strong relationships that he has. If you enjoy the music of Craig David or Conor Maynard than you may enjoy this.” – Glenn Sargeant Just Listen To This
