About the Artist
AWOLNATION is an American indie rock band, and is the solo project of Aaron Bruno, formerly of Under the Influence of Giants and Hometown Hero. The band is signed to Red Bull Records, and their first EP, Back from Earth, was released on iTunes on May 18, 2010. AWOLNATION began after Aaron Bruno was approached by Red Bull Records in 2009 asking if he wanted free use of the Red Bull recording studio in Los Angeles, Ca. After a semi-successful career working with major labels but ultimately being disappointed and released without any major hits, he decided it was time to go out on his own and write the songs that he felt he was meant to write. He recorded a few songs in the studio and ultimately signed with the label calling it more of a "partnership" and was allowed to make the recordings that he wanted. Aaron writes all of his songs himself but confides in close friends and family or respected artists for guidance. The name AWOLNATION is derived from Aaron Bruno's high school nickname. In an interview with Kristin Houser of the LA Music Blog, he stated that he "would leave without saying goodbye because it was just easier, so that's where the name Awol came from.
