Minnesotan Aaron Tinjum Inspired by DC Music Scene

Aaron Tinjum formed his folk rock project, Aaron Tinjum and the Tangents, while playing the many coffeehouses, dive bars, used clothing stores and furniture shops of the Live Music Capital of the World, Austin, Texas. In 2012, they released their debut Mirrors in the Dark and were honored by the Austin Mayor and City Council with their own official band holiday.

After an extended stint in Washington, D.C. and the release of Foreign & Domestic in 2016, Tinjum returned home to Minnesota to begin work on his next album. With the newly re-formed Tangents, he recorded his third and upcoming release Zinger at Sovereignty Recording in Minneapolis. The latest entry in Tinjum’s catalogue is arguably his best and most mature songwriting to date, with songs exploring the topics of aging and expectations.

The group has opened for a number of national touring acts, including Sam Amidon, James McCartney, Reeve Carney and Kawehi.

Now I’m telling myself [to] take the day to appreciate whatever city you’re in.
