Soul Musician Aaron Abernathy Explores Family, Faith & Love On New LP Monologue
DC – September 19, 2016 We’ve
all heard the phrase, “if you can’t measure it, it doesn’t exist.” Well, soul musician Aaron Abernathy can measure his senior year in high school as one of the most important years in his life. It marked the year he became a man. Using this as the inspiration for his new LP M onologue, Abernathy allows listeners to follow along on his journey to manhood.
Monologue plays out like a novel, where the Abernathy's expand the perception of family over Aaron’s expansion of the stripped down Soul/R&B music we’re used to hearing.
Whether he’s playing piano, wurlitzer, synths, guitar, programming drums, live drums, or arranging strings and horn lines, his mastery of musicianship is on full display through Monologue’s array of colorful, complex compositions, coupled with his rich, layered vocals.


The album opens with him honoring his parents on the whimsical, Parliamentinfluenced selection “Son Of Larry,” followed by the melodic uptempo “Favorite Girl.” On both records, he praises his father and mother and touches on their influence, words of wisdom and bold love. On the groovy “Bachelorette,” where we’re introduced to Aaron’s
pursuit of his high school love interest, the track gets an assist from longtime collaborators and hip hop heavyweights Phonte and Black Milk.


Aaron displays his sultry edge on the Princeinspired
soulpop records “I See You” and “Pretty Kind,” which showcase his raw and playful vocal lead. Doubt creeps in on the soulful midtempo “Play It Cool,” where he questions if he should profess his love or take the approach of the track’s title. The landmark moment in his story comes from the
wisdom in his father’s advice to be vulnerable, which leads us into the brilliant composition and standout ballad “I Need To Know.” Aaron delivers his monologue on the title track, where he acknowledges his mistakes and revels in his spirituality and newfound wisdom in love.
Monologue is a touching and refreshing album about family, love and purpose. Aaron has the ability to make listeners feel connected, each song taking audiophiles on a trip
back to their childhood to experience the nostalgic feeling of young love. Whether you’re a part of the Abernathy family or not, Aaron opens the door for you to come in and visit.
After visiting for a little while, you too might find your Monologue.
