Aaron Tinjum and the Tangents

Aaron Tinjum is a Minnesota-based songwriter.

He originally formed his folk rock project, Aaron Tinjum and the Tangents, while living in Austin, Texas, where they released their first album Mirrors in the Dark and were honored by the Mayor and City Council with their own official band holiday in 2012.

In 2013, the group relocated to Washington, D.C., a move which Hometown Sounds described as "swimming against the tide of those talented musicians who make their mark on D.C. and move away." The group's follow-up, Foreign & Domestic, debuted in 2016.

They have opened for the likes of Sam Amidon, James McCartney, Reeve Carney and Kawehi.
