Aeby - an electronic vibe

I met Aeby for the first time in 2016 at the Los Angeles College of Music. I remember hearing him sing at during our Orientation Week and was completely in awe of his beautiful voice. I was inhibited to sing in front of an audience and he told me that it's okay and I shouldn't be afraid to sing. Although I didn't brave it right away, Aeby was a comfort to have around.

The most sensual thing about him is his uninhibited willingness to be vulnerable. 

To find the appropriate words to express one's thoughts is a skill. Some acquire it early on and others take an entire lifetime to master it. But to be able to express what's in the deep recesses of your mind through music is a rare gift.

Growing up in El Paso, Texas, Luis Abraham Perea (professionally known as Aeby), discovered his passion for singing, when he was only 10 years old. While in high school, he simultaneously trained at the El Paso Conservatory of Music and The Golden Voice Institute. In September 2016, Aeby moved to Los Angeles, where he is currently studying Voice at the Los Angeles College of Music. 

Aeby's sound embodies the sincerity with which heartfelt music is created; the direct line of communication between a deep reservoir of emotion and the world around him. 

Having been exposed to the ordeals of the world at a very young age, Aeby chose to search for beauty in the imperfections of his life. And in this search, there is something we can all relate to: pain, longing, desire, fear, hope, love and more. We can all identify with a confusion that debilitates us until there is clarity. Aeby depicts this struggle with passion and honesty.

His tender voice cradles his lyrics with care, carrying the message of his heart through a melodic journey. The delicate and sensual electronic vibe beautifully complements his low-range Indie R&B vocal style. 

Aeby's recent releases Planets and Addicted mark the beginning of a journey of self-discovery and evolution, and an exploration of humanity. 

A comforting balm to a wounded soul, Aeby personifies the knowing voice that lifts the weight of one's shoulders and brings relief to the heart. It is said, in some cultures, that when something has been chiseled with history, it becomes more beautiful. It becomes one-of-a-kind. Aeby.
