Aaron's fascination with music-with unique sounds, melodies, progressions, and techniques-has always been a salient part of who he is. From an early age, Aaron has felt most at home in front of a piano. Just as innate to Aaron is his love of God's Word-of wrestling with the Scriptures, with the hard and beautiful things they say, and the way they foretell and fulfill a picture of a suffering servant, King Jesus.

His debut success was with "My Savior My God," winning the 2007 New Artist, Songwriter and Song of the Year. Another song "My Hope Is In You," spent 14 weeks at #1, and "Ever Be," which debuted at #3 on the NCA chart.

Over the past several years, Aaron has delved deeply into friendship with Messianic Jews, both in Nashville and Israel, as well as into the Hebrew Scriptures and Jewish tradition that they yield. You'll hear the reverence Aaron has developed for this Jewish heritage in melodic patterns and Middle Eastern instruments to passages sung in Hebrew and collaboration with Israeli musicians.

Aaron Shust is a native of Pittsburgh, makes his home in Nashville with his wife Sarah and their sons Daniel, Nick, and Michael, as well as a growing menagerie of pets.
