Aaron Shneyer’s roots, rock and soul driven music celebrates life and hopes to heal our divides. He lives in Washington, DC, and performs both solo and with a soulful 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, 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 2024 Artist Fellow with the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities and the Musician in Residence at the Sixth and I Historic Synagogue and the Adat Shalom Congregation. 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.
