Most little boys in Pittsburgh grow up dreaming that they are going to play football for the Steelers. Aaron Shust wasn't like most little boys - he was going to be a professional beach volleyball player or a surfer. Regrettably, the beach scene in Pittsburgh was not thriving. Fortunately, Aaron had music as a fallback. At the tender age of four, Aaron sang his first solo in church. By the time he was seven years old, he was playing piano. At ten, he wrote his first song, and at fourteen he took up guitar. Aaron worships God through his music and wants people to worship with him from the depths of their hearts. Aaron has called Perimeter Church in Atlanta home since 2000. He has led worship solo with piano or guitar and with his full band. He has also had the priviledge of leading worship to people of all ages at retreats, camps, conferences, local ministries, and church plants across the United States and abroad. Aaron's first album, Anything Worth Saying , is bursting with catchy, well-crafted pop songs. The stellar production and memorable choruses will have the listener singing along before each song is over. Aaron is singing his heart out to God.
'I have seen and heard and participated with Aaron in worship. With his passion, his heart, musicianship, and enthusiasm about worship - he is a great new talent!' Billy Smiley - Whiteheart
'Aaron Shust is a wonderful gift to the church. His talent is incredible. But it's more than that. Perhaps it's his authenticity or his commitment to excellence (both of which are amazing) but it's probably Jesus!' Steve Brown - Key Life Network
'This is a great record. Halfway through every song I found myself singing along.' Ed Roland - Collective Soul
