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 synth 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 again. 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 50,000 plays on pandora. I've released several collaborations, including a song with a signed artist Ronin Mode. I'm currently working with and learning from Taylor Swift's former manager, Rick Barker.
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.
