Boston duo Aer, formed by David von Mering & Carter Schultz, have created their own brand of music comprised of rap, reggae, pop & indie rock. Aer unveiled their debut album The Bright Side, in 2012, which independently earned the No. 1 spot on iTunes Albums chart and Billboard’s Top 200. Aer’s second album, self-titled, released on January 21, 2014 reached #5 on iTunes Top Albums chart with 10,150 sold in the US in the first week and charted #2. Overall on Billboard’s charts, the single “Says She Loves Me” rose to #1 on Sirius XM’s Alt Nation.
Aer has shared the stage with Slightly Stoopid, Mac Miller, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, SOJA, Dirty Heads, Pepper and more. They’ve been on three national headline tours, on the last they played over a dozen sold out shows including one in front of 2,500 fans in their hometown of Boston, as well as two European headline tours. Aer’s music has been placed on numerous MTV shows including “Real World,” on the NFL Network, and in an Etnies advertisement featuring Ryan Sheckler. This summer, they are slated to play Outside Lands, Bumbershoot, Firefly, Cali Roots and more.
