Aaron Zimmer playing his new song ‘So Heavy’ in Troup Square

Aaron Paul Zimmer is a Savannah-based singer, songwriter, guitarist and harmonica player and has been composing original music for the past 20 years. He began playing live in clubs and bars in Athens, Ga while he attended the University of Georgia. For the past six years, he has played guitar and written music for City Hotel, an award-winning bluegrass band that has played extensively throughout the Southeast and has toured the Eastern coast of the U.S. from Miami to New York. The group just released its third studio album entitled, “Don’t Go to the Porch,” which is available on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon and at www.cityhotelband.com. Zimmer is also the front-man of the Savannah honky-tonk super-group, The Grand Gestures.

Zimmer’s solo material and shows rely heavily on lyric centric folk compositions that weave beautiful storytelling and autobiographical narrative with intricate melodies. Connect Savannah’s music and entertainment director and editor, Anna Chandler, writes, “Zimmer is like a front porch Sinatra, able to demonstrate control and a pleasingly timeless tone framed by a Southern accent.” His music is pleasantly atmospheric and perfect for any arena or venue, coffee shop or bar, fine-dining establishment or street corner, wedding or funeral.
