ABOUT AB

Aaron Abernathy, professionally known as Ab, is a multi-talented entertainer - musician, singer, songwriter, and producer. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, AB comes from a long-line of historical pioneers including Civil Rights Leader, Rev. Ralph David Abernathy and student of the same high school music program as the late R&B great Gerald Levert. 

Ab joined the ranks of artists like Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack as a graduate from the prestigious music program at Howard University, where he sharpened his vocal abilities and musicianship.  With outstanding talents as both a pianist and a vocalist, he has acted as musical director for global touring acts Black Milk and Slum Village and collaborated with Grammy-nominated artists including Jack WhiteThe Foreign Exchange, and Eric Roberson.

His professional music pursuits began on the historical steps of Howard University, where he formed the band AB and The Souljourners and developed a buzz on the local DC music scene with the release of his self-produced debut album Lyrically Inclined 1.3: The Odyssey. After graduating from Howard, they embarked on a US Tour. The band's talent and showmanship style caught the eye of several artists, most notable Eric Roberson, Marsha Ambrosius, and Slum Village. Eric Roberson featured Ab in NYC based showcases and on his 2009 single "Howard Girls." Slum Village hired Ab to be their musical director from 2005-2010, revamping their performances from the traditional DJ and Emcee format to live band hip-hop experience. He also was featured on the single "Dance" from their 2010 album Villa Manifesto.

In 2009, Ab transitioned his musical director talents to underground hip-hop heavyweight Black Milk. In addition to touring the US, Europe, and Australia with Black Milk, Ab has been featured on his last four albums: Tronic, A.O.T.Y., No Poison No Paradise, and If There's A Hell Below. Songs include: Reppin' For You, Oh Girl, Parallels, and Leave The Bones Behind. In 2012, Ab's band "Nat Turner" became Black Milk's backing band and he helped establish his live shows as one of the best in hip hop!  

In the Spring of 2015, Ab and his band Nat Turner opened up for Black Milk on his "Play Like Hell European Tour" to rave reviews from European audiences. Ab's aggressive combination of gospel-inspired vocals, tight change-ups, and raw funk vamps has been compared to D'angelo's Voodoo tour. Ab's performance on stage reveals his diligent study in the Prince and James Brown schools of showmanship.
