Today’s Rising Artist is Teenage Dreams (Aidan Christopher Haughey), a musician from Anchorage, Alaska. Aidan went to NYC for film school but after a watery two years dropped out to pursue music solely. After having his heart broken over the summer by the most amazing girl he had ever the chance to love, he returned to nyc to record, Romance Memories, Teenage Daydreams debut album.
Teenage Daydreams is the solo project of Aidan Christopher Haughey, who does all instrumentation, vocals, production and mastering of his work. While growing up in Alaska, he spent his youth alone in his room, constantly practicing instruments as he taught himself everything he could get his hands on, and recording every idea that popped into his head.
However, things did not go well, it took seven months of insane labor, where everything that could go wrong did, several brushes with death, and a whole lot of pancakes later, and the result is the heart felt melodious, shoegazey dreampop works of Romance memories.
Aidan’s song below, “Missing You”, is an emotional ballad that catches the essence of a rough breakup. Aidan – producer and performer – has the ability to capture the feelings that other struggle to express, and puts it into song. Listen to more of his music and support him here.
