Cowboy hats, polka dot shirts, and crafty songwriting? If all three are on the same stage simultaneously, that must mean one thing - Aaron Lee Tasjan is performing.

The folk-rock guitarist made his national television debut as a solo artist on Thursday night, performing “Little Movies” off his latest album, 2016’s Little Movies under the late night lights on Conan.

During the performance, which can be watched in the video below, Tasjan showcases his retro rock styled taste in fashion, which perfectly compliments his equally fantastic style of Americana rock songwriting. As he performs the folk sounding rock song off his album, which earned rave reviews from industry leading critics including Rolling Stone, American Songwriter, and NPR, it’s impossible not to appreciate his blend of influences like Tom Petty and Neil Young coming from a musician’s musician for a new generation of music fans.

Most mainstream rock fans probably haven’t heard of Aaron Lee Tasjan, but the journeyman guitarist and singer-songwriter has certainly been around music long enough at this point to offer a lifetime’s worth of stories. The 30 year old guitarist has been a part of local and nationally recognized bands including Alberta Cross, the New York Dolls, and the Madison Square Gardeners, so it’s great to see him finally start to get some national recognition of his own these days.

Party on Aaron.
