Aaron Paris is an instrumentalist, producer, composer, arranger, educator, and street performer, based out of Toronto, Canada.

Though classically trained on the violin, Aaron plays in a wide variety of styles and specializes in hip-hop, trap, and r&b. He has shared the stage with artists such as Sean Leon, Adria Kain, The Dream Warriors, and Maestro Fresh Wes.

In an ensemble setting, he has performed with Roger Hodgson of Supertramp, Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo, Lisa Ono, and The Tenors.

As a street performer, Aaron orchestrates live hip-hop and pop loop arrangements on the spot using just the sounds of his violin. He has performed at festivals and corporate events across Toronto and the GTA including Canada's Wonderland, MarS Discovery District, Toronto Buskerfest, Western University, Fanshawe College, and Laurier University.

Aaron also works as a studio musician, tracking solo strings or creating a string section by layering the sounds of his violin and viola. His work can be heard on tracks by artists such as Sean Leon, Adria Kain, Casey Burns, and Mathien.
