Compared by Chicago Sun-Times rock critic Jim DeRogatis to the likes of Beck and Frank Zappa, Aaron Ackerson is an irreverent, genre-straddling musician. His music encompases rock, hip-hop, classical, and country, among other genres.

His first album, The Sexiest Man on Earth, was released to critical praise and airplay on the Dr. Demento Show (the same nationally syndicated American radio program which launched the career of "Weird" Al Yankovic). The album features collaborations with such artists as Lemon Demon, The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir, and Cex.

His newest album, Outside on the Inside, is a concept album about Japan and his experiences living there for three years, and features musicians from such bands as The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir, Lemon Demon, and Time Crash.
