Born in the U.S., Aaron Hinton-Marshall (aka Aaron Fresh) wanted to sing by age seven; at eight when he was sent to live with his grandmother in Port-Au-Spain, the tiny capitol city of the republic of Trinidad and Tobago. At a crucial time in his development, he gained a sincere appreciation for reggae, dub and calypso music, especially inspired by Jamaican stars Buju Banton and Sizzla. In middle school, Aaron started entering talent shows and trying out for agencies. “Any opportunity where I could showcase my talent,” he says, “I was there.”
