A Kind Voice on Music is part of the bigger mission of a A Kind Voice which is to make our world a kinder, more connected place, one conversation at a time. So we share the words and music of artists who embody the spirit of our mission and avoid religious and political conversations/music because good people can disagree on what it means to be a kind voice in those areas. We also avoid music that has harsh or sexually explicit lyrics.

Host Pete Kremer will interview actress, musician, singer and song writer, Aaron Marshall discusses her story of carving a name for herself in the entertainment world. Aaron was raised by middle-aged musicians, so it was no surprise when she became one. Ms. Marshall feels like that statement sums up pretty much everything without getting into too many nitty-gritty details. She has performed on stage since the age of two, and professionally since the age of 15. Her musical career has been one in which she has worn almost every hat imaginable, from music store grunt to Nashville demo-diva, from musical directing and acting in countless works of theatre to bar-room Rock Star. Aaron has a written catalog of hundreds of finished and unfinished songs, and even more performances under her belt spanning genres and stages of all types. A few months ago, she ended a successful stint as a solo act at a popular piano bar in St. Augustine, FL and has since moved to New York City to pursue musical collaborations with old and new friends and to scratch out a bit of a name for herself. Her website is now up and running at theaaronmarshall.com.
