Aaron Davis (ACRE) was born in Cambridge U.K. and grew up amongst the vast wheat fields outside Minot North Dakota.

At age 17 he dropped out of high school and moved to Olympia, WA, where he lived in a series of punk houses and played in the bands The Lords of Light speed, Dead Weather Radar, The bay area band Gowns, and later EMA.

The austere landscapes andsensibilities of the Great Plains still inform the sweeping structures of his work, and the DIY ethos of the Pacific Northwest is apparent in his deep knowledge of cheap electronics, and system based music.

He currently lives in Portland, OR.
