Daily Inspiration: Meet Aaron Tyler Marmon ATM

Today we’d like to introduce you to Aaron Tyler Marmon ATM.

Hi Aaron Tyler, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
I am an ambitious person from a small town in Kansas. Ever since a young age, I was drawn towards live music and performances. It always felt like home being a concert. I have been doing hip hop since I was 15. I did my first show when I was 19. Then I had a hiatus with real-life situations coming into play. Mental Health, Legal Problems, Family and working so many hours. But since March and after things reopened, I decided to put my best foot forward. Make time for my dreams and what I’ve always wanted. I had the content and I was ready for live shows again. But as well I started promoted and booking. By taking things into my own hands, I do not have to worry about pay to play slot fees or not getting booked. We have had some highs and lows this year just like everyone else. We’re trying in a time where everything is so uncertain. I have been booking all around the Midwest for artists and myself. I have played places and going to play places music is taking me. That I have never been. It’s been a hard year. I’m a father of two and 40 plus hour worker. Whatever time is left after that, I’m making the most out of.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Definitely being an artist and promoter, you go through ups and downs. Denial, disapproval and hatred for no reason sometimes. Struggles as in trying to find venues, finding the time to work on music out distractions. There is a lot of bad vibes about hip hop in some communities. So some venues or towns won’t book you.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Well, I am trying to do the most right now. Artist, Promoter, Booking Agent, Talent scout, and Label Owner. I am just proud of my growth and work ethic. Get better with each track and Each show. Just never giving up on your dreams. And trying to go full time into some you love and can enjoy everyday. What sets me apart is like I said work ethic, Persistent and Consistent!

We’re always looking for the lessons that can be learned in any situation, including tragic ones like the Covid-19 crisis. Are there any lessons you’ve learned that you can share?
Appreciate your circle. If it’s not affecting you directly. It’s affecting others still. Respect people’s opinions from both sides. We are all in this storm together.
