Today marks a changing of the guard for The Aaron Clift Experiment: Devin North will soon be moving to Nashville to pursue a new musical direction.  We wish Devin the best of luck with his music career and can’t thank him enough for the excellent bass work and songwriting that he brought to The Aaron Clift Experiment on “Outer Light, Inner Darkness” and “If All Goes Wrong.”

We’ve been incredibly fortunate that, during this period of transition, we’ve been working with a new bassist who embodies the talent and versatility that The Aaron Clift Experiment’s music demands.  Please welcome Christopher Aboujaoude:

Brother of new ACE guitarist, Mathew Aboujaoude, Christopher is currently studying bass at Berklee College of Music Online.  He started his musical education at age 9, learning keyboards, drums, and saxophone in addition to bass.  Over the last 4 years, he has done extensive session work in the southern United States as well as toured worldwide with his brother in the Lebanese Pink Floyd tribute band, Brick Floyd.

Christopher will be making his live debut with us at our September 27 show at One 2 One Bar in Austin, so please be sure to come out and welcome him to the ACE family!

Thanks again to Devin for all of the great music you’ve done with ACE over the last few years, and break a leg in Nashville!

It’s never easy to find a guitarist with the skill and background to play the diverse range of music in our catalog, but we’re very happy to announce that we’ve found the guy.  Introducing our new guitarist, Mathew Aboujaoude:

Currently studying guitar and songwriting at Berklee College of Music Online, Mathew started playing keyboards at the age of 7 and picked up the guitar at age 9.  For the past 4 years, he has toured extensively in Texas, Louisiana, and the Middle East with Brick Floyd, a Lebanese Pink Floyd tribute act.  Mathew has done session work with various artists in the US and abroad, and is currently recording an original solo progressive rock album to be released this year.

We’re looking forward to working with Mathew as we gear up for more live shows this fall and beyond.  Mathew will be making his live debut with us at our September 27 show at One 2 One Bar in Austin, so please be sure to come out and welcome him to the ACE family!

“If All Goes Wrong” is a turning point . . . the music is tighter and crisper as Aaron, Devin, and Tim each come into their own. The music runs the gambit; the album is as diverse a prog album as I’ve heard in quite some time. One of the upsides to the search for all things prog is discovering a band and following their journey to success.”
