My name is Aaron Giese, also known as Geeztown (pronounced with a hard G as in Go). I'm a singer/songwriter/producer from Minneapolis, MN. I make modern pop music.
I started off playing guitar in rock bands, making electronic music, producing hip hop, and recording my own bands in high school. I went to college for recording and production and continued making music. On April 4th 2004, I became a Christian and made some big changes in my life. I dropped out of college and quit doing music completely for several years. Then, after my dad bought a pro tools rig, I started messing around with it. One thing lead to another and I was making music again. Bands started asking me to record them, and for the next decade I was recording and producing bands and artists.
I started feeling like I wasn't in control of my career because I was relying on the the success of artists I produced. I had always enjoyed making my own music, so I decided to focus on that.
My song Miracle has over 50k plays on pandora. My music video for Sunflower got over 100k views on Facebook before I left social media. I've had several other songs and videos with multiple thousands of views. I've released several collaborations with other artists. I've been around and learned from some of the top people in the industry.
As a producer, my work has been played on radio across the country. It's been seen and heard by hundreds of thousands of people. I became a voting member of the Recording Academy and attended the Grammys twice.
As of April 2021, I left all mainstream social media except youtube. My mission is to make a living creating the art I want to create without selling my soul, or being owned by any label, big tech company, elite secret society, or anyone else. If there is no freedom of expression, there is no art. Only propaganda and marketing. I'm not interested in trying to impress any narcissistic gatekeepers. I make art for myself and the fans that support me. Having a great song that I'm excited about is the reward. Not a number or views, fans, awards, or money.
