Aaron Tinjum and the Tangents

Aaron Tinjum is a D.C.-based, Minnesota-grown songwriter.

He formed his folk rock project, Aaron Tinjum and the Tangents, 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, they 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 early 2016. They have opened for the likes of Sam Amidon, Reeve Carney, James McCartney, and Kawehi.
