Aaron Bruno (born November 11, 1978) is an American rock musician. He is best known for being the lead singer of Awolnation.[1] He is a former member of the post-grunge band Home Town Hero,[2] the indie-pop group Under the Influence of Giants, and Insurgence. He was born and raised in Los Angeles. In 2004, Home Town Hero split up shortly after their second EP. Aaron continued to write music. He created the song "Sail" in 2010 as part of AWOLNATION's first EP, Back From Earth.[3] "Sail" would hit #5 on the U.S Billboard Alternative Songs chart, going platinum in America and double platinum in Canada. In 2011 the album Megalithic Symphony was released. In March 2015, AWOLNATION released their second album, entitled "Run". Bruno, with some help from his engineer, recorded the entirety of the new album by himself, doing not only the vocals but also the instrumentals and the writing for the new release.
