148: Aaron Steele (Chrome Sparks, Portugal The Man, Alice Smith)

Aaron Steele grew up in New York City, raised by two Panamanian immigrants who become pastors. His adventurous spirit, deep pocket, and attention to sonic detail make him one of the most exciting young artists on the scene. He tells Joe about: how Bill Withers was his “Beatles”; growing up a believer; becoming a skeptic; how bands like At The Drive In liberated him from the culture of virtuosity enveloping the gospel scene, being “nearly homeless”, getting roofied after a tour, and why he is happy with the course his life has taken.
