Aaron Embry is an American songwriter and record producer. A periodic studio musician and touring pianist with artists such as Elliott Smith and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, he has also helped write albums by Jane’s Addiction and produced albums by artists such as Avi Buffalo. In 2012 he released his solo album Tiny Prayers on Vagrant Records.
Aaron was born on November 10, 1975, in Bellflower, California. He was the first child of a screenwriter/talent manager mother and dental technician father, H. Charles and Karen Randall. He is the eldest of three siblings, including actor Ethan Embry and photographer Kessia Randall. He began taking piano lessons as a child, and music became a focus of his life. While a high school junior, he played his first professional gig in the orchestra pit of a production of Evita.

At age 19, Capitol Records signed him to a two-year development deal as a solo artist. A formal album wasn’t released, but the demo-recording process started his career as a songwriter. He played piano and guitar in Elliott Smith’s band touring for the album Figure 8, playing live with Smith, Sam Coomes and Scott McPherson. Embry states that “witnessing [Smith’s] creative process was for me the equivalent to taking a graduate course in songwriting.” Embry played piano with the band on the April 21, 2000’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien.

Embry later became the leader of the indie-rock group Amnion, helping write the group’s songs. In February 2008, Amnion released their debut full-length album AmenNamO.

Embry has remained a frequent touring musician, working for musicians such as Willie Nelson. He played piano on the debut album Up From Below, and was then the touring piano player with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros from 2009–12. In August 2012 he booked a string of dates opening for Mumford and Sons in support of his debut solo album, Tiny Prayers. In 2014 Embry’s song Raven’s Song was featured in the movie Wish I Was Here directed by Zach Braff.
