To date, drummer Aaron Comess, a founding member of the Grammy nominated, ten million plus album selling band Spin Doctors, has played on, written on and/or produced over two hundred albums with an acclaimed and diverse roster of artists such as, Joan Osborne, Bilal, Rachael Yamagata, New York Electric Piano, Isaac Hayes, James Maddock, Marc Cohn and Chris Whitley to name a few.

He is about to release his second recording of original instrumental songs as a leader. Beautiful Mistake is a collection of organic melodic songs with plenty of room for a conversation between the musicians. It reflects Comess' diversity and talent as a performer and his open and forward thinking approach to playing and composing music.

He has performed live and on television with some of music's biggest artists including Joan Osborne, Natasha Bedingfield, Edie Brikell, Andréa Bocelli, David Foster, Aaron Neville, German superstar Marius Westernhagen, and Spin Doctors. He also stays very active in the NYC local jazz, experimental music scene and singer songwriter circuits and records and produces at his own recording studio, His House studio, in the east village.
