Aaron Meyer was born and raised in metro Detroit. From a young age, he was exposed to a lot of music and a wide variety of music by his parents at home.

It was here Meyer studied for two years under Perry Hughes and two years under Randy Napoleon. After graduating, he spent a year gigging locally in Lansing and the surrounding area before moving back to Detroit.
