East Nashville’s Hip and Talented Aaron Lee Tasjan

To Release ‘Karma For Cheap’

31 August 2018


Aaron Lee Tasjan is set to return with Karma for Cheap on August 31, 2018 via New West Records.

The ten-song set was co-produced by Tasjan, Jeff Trott (Sheryl Crow), and Gregory Lattimer (Albert Hammond Jr.) and features Tasjan’s road band – the wonderful guitarist Brian Wright, bassist Tommy Scifres and drummer Seth Earnest – with whom he has been touring heavily for the last two years.

Karma for Cheap is the follow up to Tasjan’s critically acclaimed 2016 Silver Tears which was one of our best albums of that year.

Tasjan hails from the cool and artisan part of Nashville, East Nashville (at least while its residents can continue to afford to live there!). He is witty, off-centre, hard-working and restless. He is increasingly ensconced in the Americana and alt. Country scene, but he presents with a glam-rock, psychedelic, jingle-jangle pair of overalls.

Listening Through The Lens has been captivated by Aaron Lee many times on stage, both with his owns shows and when he is a dutiful band member, helping out his force-of-nature buddy Brian Wright.

Of the new album, Tasjan has this to say:

“I needed this album to have a sense of adventure and mystery, to feel a little shaky and dangerous at times – something that wasn’t the obvious choice in terms of what people already like about what I do.  I’ve come to realize that I’m a searcher, which means I’m going to be searching forever.”

The song “If Not Now When,” the lead off track, which doors it hats to one of his biggest influences The Beatles, has been released.


Karma for Cheap will be available across digital retailers, on CD, standard black vinyl and limited edition Red & Orange split coloured vinyl available at Independent Retailers.

“The sound of the new record is a little more rough and ready, more raw than anything I’ve done before,” Tasjan says.  “Seems like a good time for it.  We’re living in a pretty raw feed right now, and a lot of these new songs reflect that.”  He continues, “Music for me is a comfort thing.  And I’m trying to sing about all of this to remind myself not to get caught up in the game.  There are a lot of people out there carrying the burden of this weird, twisted world we’re living in at the moment on their shoulders.  So I tried to write a record that offers some comfort, encouragement and hope to those people, as much as it’s possible to be hopeful right now.”
