NASHVILLE, Tenn. – When Aidan Canfield arrived in January with his debut album We’re Young, Alright, the singer-songwriter hailing from Pleasantville, New York – who penned all 12 of the project’s tracks by himself – moved to Nashville to be as close to Country music as possible. Attracting third generation country music booking agent and artist advocate Austin Neal due to his unique sound and storytelling, Canfield has officially signed with The Neal Agency (TNA).
"The second I stepped into The Neal office, it felt like a family,” shares Canfield. “Everybody there sees it as more than a job and they are all truly passionate about each artist. I couldn't be more excited to build my career with such great people around me at The Neal Agency!”
“It’s extremely rare to find an artist like Aidan,” says Neal, who initially introduced Canfield’s music to his team at The Neal Agency in an A&R meeting four months ago. “He has a distinctive sound, an entire album of one-way writes, and an honesty and dedication that comes across when you hear him. Our team immediately and unanimously agreed we had to pursue signing him. We're honored to add him to our roster for representation at TNA."
Canfield’s artistry infuses a unique combination of Rock and Country influences from the sounds that he grew up on – a little bit of Bob Seger and Bruce Springsteen, a little bit of Kenny Chesney meets Zach Bryan. His heartfelt lyrics and melodies have struck a chord of relatability he’s witnessed on the road on support dates with Riley Green and, most recently, the Cameron Sacky Band.
Featured in country music YouTuber and critic Grady Smith’s “Best Music Under the Radar of 2023,” Canfield’s growing popularity has also led to his first CMA Fest performance on the Hard Rock Stage set for Sunday, June 11.
In addition to Canfield, TNA’s roster proudly represents Ashland Craft, ERNEST, Riley Green, HARDY, mike., John Morgan, Chase Rice, Josh Ross, Seaforth, Morgan Wallen, Lauren Watkins and Bailey Zimmerman, along with lifestyle brand Stevenson Ranch.
Canfield’s additional representation includes Justine Avila with The Moonshot Group for management, James Dail at Wiatr & Associates for business management and Elliot Groffman at Carroll Guido Groffman Cohen Bar & Karalian, LLP for legal.
