Aaron Curtis Harmon was born on March 7th, 1985 in Las Vegas, Nevada to Lisa and Curtis Harmon. Aaron’s love affair with music began at the age of fourteen when he received his first guitar, a hand-me-down flamenco guitar.
Early Life[edit | edit source]
Aaron went to high school at Bishop Gorman where he participated in the school’s band, playing trombone, and began studying music theory and classical guitar. He played guitar in a couple short-lived bands during high school which consisted of fellow nu-metal and theory enthusiasts (plumm and Omnipure). Aaron also began exploration into the production side of music at the age of 16 after receiving his first musical software, Cakewalk.
Career[edit | edit source]
Beginning[edit | edit source]
Aaron went on to study jazz at the University of Nevada Las Vegas for three years before dropping out to move to Nashville, TN in order to pursue musical opportunities with his prog-rock band, A Beginner’s Mind (ABM).
ABM found success on the local rock scene in Nashville, TN before rebranding and launching as Enjoy the Zoo (ETZ). With ETZ, Aaron honed his programming and mixing skills while producing the band’s various EP’s.
ETZ was known for their tight synchronicity and skilled technicality. They shared stage with the likes of Gym Class Heroes, Metro Station, and Boys Like Girls before disbanding so that bandmates Jordan Reyes, Shane Wise, Kyle Lampi, and James Wrench could pursue individual musical goals.
Aaron began writing and producing for local and national artists around 2009. Aaron landed his first major placement  with Bella Thorne and Zendaya in 2011 for the hit Disney show, Shake it Up. Following the success of Shake it Up, Aaron wrote for streak of Kid’s shows including Good Luck Charlie and Blaze and the Monster Machines.
Later[edit | edit source]
In 2012, Aaron formed infamous electronic trio, BASECAMP, along with his long-time writing and production partner, Jordan Reyes. Fellow Nashvillian songwriter, Aaron Miller, joined as frontman [song: Emmanuel].
BASECAMP garnered attention with their first single Emmanuel, and were asked to tour with CHVRCHES in 2013. BASECAMP was then quickly signed to a publishing deal with Dr. Luke’s Prescription Songs. Shortly after, BASECAMP signed a record deal with Skrillex’s OWSLA in 2015 [EPs: Greater Than, In Stone].
In 2015, Aaron, Jordan and Aaron worked alongside the Found Movement Group to create GRADIENT, a four night contemporary theatrical performance at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) in Nashville, TN. Aaron and Jordan programmed the show using songs from BASECAMP’s catalogue, as well as creating original score to FMG’s contemporary dance scenes. The show was critically acclaimed and garnered global attention with talks of touring inside and outside of the United States.
In 2016, BASECAMP went on to do a world tour beginning in Paris, France and ending with a show in Zagreb, Croatia. Their homecoming show boasted a sold out bill at the infamous Exit/In in Nashville, TN.
