Cut Against The Grain is the debut studio album by British guitarist Aaron Keylock, released in January 2017 via Provogue Records.

Born in Oxford, UK, teenage guitar sensation Aaron Keylock's was already stringing his Les Paul and developing his song writing and guitar licks while most kids were playing with toys. By the age of 11 he was rocking the clubs in Oxford. The young gunslinger headed to LA to record his debut album with producer Fabrizio Grossi who has previously worked with Alice Cooper, Slash, Steve Vai and Zakk Wylde. Cut Against The Grain is a strong statement of where Aaron is now a teenager who has been rocking hard his whole life!

Maturity is what’s stamped all over Aaron Keylock’s much anticipated debut album, Cut Against The Grain. The rip roaring, yet labyrinthine opener “All The Right Moves” sets the scene beautifully for that which is to follow and never at any stage does the album disappoint.

A riff driven behemoth that has smacks of Arctic Monkeys, yet steers around and comes to a breathtaking stop in front of a monument to Lynyrd Skynyrd quite magnificently. The roundedness of the track is all encompassing, yet truly innovative and original sounding, thanks in no small part to the teenager’s impeccable artistry.

What’s also clear is that playing support to some of the biggest names in the industry old and new, (Keylock boasts slots with Wilko Johnson, Joanne Shaw Taylor and Alice Cooper amongst many of those he has been on the road with), has honed his holistic focus to that which is free and ultimately refreshing.

Down” is a fun filled, jam fest filled with cheek and charisma, whereas “Falling Again” – its slide guitar sweeping through as an undertone – and “Spin The Bottle” are both songs guaranteed to get toes tapping at home and audiences bouncing on the auditorium floor.

The moody, sultry double-edged “Try” shows brilliantly that there is more than good times Rock ‘n’ Roll to Keylock’s repertoire though. With its skilfully constructed lyricism, superbly controlled musicianship, wit and craft, yet free of self aggrandisement. The same can also be said of “No Matter What The Cost”.

It is hard to foresee anything other than a crystal clear horizon for a young man already being touted amongst his peers as being one to watch.

Ultimately, Cut Against The Grain is an intelligent, prodigious debut that more than delivers on the expectation.

Check out the tracks: “All The Right Moves” and “Against The Grain”. 

This LP record with a digital download is pressed in Europe on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl.
