17 year old guitar hero AARON KEYLOCK signs to Mascot Label Group

Mascot Label Group are delighted to announce the signing of 17 year old guitar hero in the making Aaron Keylock to join our roster that includes Joe Bonamassa, Gov’t Mule, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Black Label Society and Walter Trout. 

Every now and then an artist comes along that blows you away and Aaron has fast been cementing his reputation as one of the most exciting and brightest young talent’s in the UK. We pride ourselves on signing guitar virtuosos and feel that Aaron fits into that mould. A mesmerising live performer with over 200 shows to his name; he has already played with Blackberry Smoke, The Cadillac Three, The Graveltones and 2015 will see him go into the studio to record his debut record.

The deal was signed this week ahead of a sweat drenched packed to the rafters show in London with Mascot owner Ed van Zijl saying “It is always exciting to bring a new talent to the World and play a part in the building of that career. It is the reason this company exists. Aaron is a great talent and I am convinced he has what it takes to become successful in the future. There are so many young and talented guitarists out there now, Rock n Roll is definitely not dead!”

On joining the label Aaron also stated; “I'm thrilled to have signed with Mascot records, they have so many great artists that I have been brought up listening to and have become huge influences to me. I look forward to working closely with them and making some great records!”

More album and tour news to follow.

“From the moment we heard Aaron Keylock’s ‘Medicine Man’, we were captivated. He is an immense talent and a real must see future rock star in the making. We are very excited and look forward to a very successful long term career ahead”
LIVE NATION (Dave Bradley)

“Virtuosos are 10-a-penny, but last year’s support slots with Blackberry Smoke announced a songwriter with ambitions beyond the 12 bar. Keylock could be a name to conjure with” Classic Rock Magazine, Sounds of 2015.
“If you’re looking for a real teen prodigy, Aaron Keylock is your man. Aaron is in this for the long haul and by all rights will be a major artist for many decades to come” The Blues Magazine
