Today we’d like to introduce you to Aaryn Lindow.
Hi Aaryn, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
Back in the day, Jordon and Tyler started Red Baron, and after years of playing together with various lineups, added myself (Aaryn) to the mix in 2019, right before we recorded the self-titled. After we finished recording, we decided with the new sound and line-up to change the name and start fresh under Edison Hollow. In 2021 we officially added David Alan Vida to the mix and now exist in the format you see us now. We pride ourselves on being one of the hardest working bands in the area and have made a name for ourselves with energetic and engaging live shows that are hard pressed to be matched. The DIY ethos and high standards we hold ourselves too has really shaped us into who we are now. It wasn’t always easy, and of course, we’re always learning and growing together, but we will work endlessly to any goal we put in our sights.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Of course not, there was a lot of learning moments and struggle along the way. The music industry can be very convoluted and difficult to navigate. We still have our “learning moments” at the time. Figuring out a balance of booking shows, getting on the road, finding solid venues/bands to play with were some of the smaller ones. On the bigger side, in this industry specifically, there are, unfortunately, people who can and will take advantage of naivete, and figuring out who those people were/weren’t was hard at times. We still deal with it today even (albeit a lot less). But it comes with the territory, and sometimes you learn lessons the hard way.
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar, what can you tell them about what you do?
We specialize in packing the intensity and high-octane energy of an arena show into any stage we occupy. No matter where you look (or stand), you’re going to see something happen. Whether it’s Jordon running out into the crowd and engaging our audience directly, David throwing his bass around like King Kong with those planes, Tyler dancing and throwing his guitar around, or Aaryn (me) throwing my sticks up and bouncing them off of ceilings – you won’t see anything like it.
Before we go, is there anything else you can share with us?
This is always a difficult one, but I guess that we truly and wholeheartedly appreciate the support. Whether you’ve come to a show, bought merch, helped us out recording, van repairs (you know who you are), or in any other way, it’s never taken for granted and something that is always at the forefront of what we do.
