Happy 2020, ACE fans! 2019 was a year of growth for The Aaron Clift Experiment, so I thought that I’d look back at some of the highlights before we head into the new decade:
We began the year with a series of great shows in Austin, covering highlights from our career so far with a special emphasis on songs from “If All Goes Wrong.”
In April, we introduced our new rhythm section: drummer, Chase Ozment, and bassist, Clif Warren. As you can see, they’re great at drum stick dueling! But, in all serious, Chase and Clif are amazing players and have helped take our live sound to the next level.
Speaking of our live sound, in June, we recorded our second live album, “Live at One-2-One Bar,” which we released in August along with a series of videos of this incredible show.
We capped off 2019 with a series of local concerts, culminating in the Holiday Charity Rocktacular for Austin Pets Alive in December. This charity concert featured many of our favorite Austin bands and ended up raising hundreds of dollars for Austin Pets Alive!
So, what lies ahead for us? We’ve been hard at work on a lot of new songs, which we hope to debut in 2020. While we plan to take a few months off from live performing in order to work on these songs, I know that when we come back, you’ll know that the wait was worth it.
Thank you all for making 2019 a great year for the band, and here’s to a great 2020!
