Aaron Shust's Biography

After serving for five years as a worship leader at Perimeter Church in Atlanta, Georgia, Aaron is now humbled to serve a much larger congregation. A life-long churchgoer, Shust grew up in Pittsburgh, where he started playing piano at the age of 7. As a teenager Aaron learned to play the guitar and was influenced by the sounds of the '60s and Motown. Attending Toccoa Falls College, Shust studied music theory, developed an aptitude for the likes of Bach and Mozart, and soaked in the sounds of more recent masters like his favorite band U2. In 2004, he recorded his debut album Anything Worth Saying, and the results were extraordinary.

Aaron's freshman album sold over 140,000 copies in the first year and carried the smash hit single "My Savior, My God." With more radio airplay than any other song in 2006, "My Savior, My God" topped several radio charts and was named the #1 Song of the Year across multiple formats.

But despite the overnight success, Aaron never forgot the reason behind his music, and he continued hard at work on his sophomore album Whispered and Shouted. Though the songwriting process was sometimes challenging amid a whirlwind of media interviews, tour dates, and meet-and-greets, Aaron remained focused on writing songs that lead people to worship Christ more deeply.

With steady praise of both of his albums, life may continue to be a blur of change for Aaron Shust, but he knows that God is still with him in the midst of the melee. With more laurels already under his belt than many artists assemble in a career, Aaron's just smiling and enjoying the music.
