@aaronshneyer Profile Picture Aaron Shneyer (he/him) @aaronshneyer

Aaron Shneyer’s roots, rock and soul driven music celebrates life and hopes to heal our divides. He lives in Washington, DC, and performs with a powerhouse band of DC’s finest jazz, gospel, world music, funk and reggae musicians. With influences like Caetano Veloso, Paul Simon, Miriam Makeba and Jimi Hendrix and finding himself in a similar sonic forest as Nick Mulvey and Jorge Drexler, Aaron weaves together elements of Rock n Roll, Folk, and the musics of South America and the Middle East.

A 2008 Fulbright-MTVu Fellowship took him to Jerusalem to study music’s power to build mutual-understanding, through which he formed www.heartbeat.fm. Aaron has performed with luminary artists including Bobby McFerrin, Mira Awad, TootArd, Sameh “Saz” Zakout, Gabriel Meyer Halevy, and Nava Tehila. He’s a 2018, 2020, 2022, and 2023 Artist Fellow with the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities and the Musician in Residence at the Sixth and I Historic Synagogue. He’s spent much of the last 15+ years leading music-driven bridge building efforts with youth in Israel/Palestine and violence prevention programs with youth artists in DC.

His recently released album, Love Rebellion, culminates a 12 year journey jumping worlds between Israelis and Palestinians, jumping to some other continents and finding his partner in life. Love Rebellion is available everywhere you stream music.
