El Pasoans Music Featured In FOX TV Series
A ballad written by an El Paso musician was recently featured in a hit tv series.
Aaron Goldfarb recently returned to El Paso after earning a law degree from the University of Texas School of Law. While attending college in Austin, he was a member of a jazz/country band called Leah and the Moonlighters. While with that band, Aaron performed at several Austin music venues as well as several legendary Austin area music festivals.
One of the songs he wrote back then, "If It's Not You", caught the ear of the producers of the FOX tv series, 9-1-1: Lone Star and the song was recently featured in an episode. According to IMDb.com, the show is about:
A New York firefighter relocates to Austin, Texas with his son, where he works to save people's lives while trying to solve his own personal problems.
In episode 8 of season 1, a character named Michelle, (played by Liv Tyler, daughter of Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler), is nervously awaiting her turn at an open mic singing event. While she waits, the musician on stage ... played by Aarons former bandmate and incredibly talented musician herself, Leah Zeger ... plays the song. (Watch all of season 1 here.)
An interesting note about Tyler: She was cast in the Aerosmith music video for "Crazy", based on her previous performance in a commercial. At the time she was unaware that her father was the band's frontman. She pretty much grew up not knowing who her Dad was until officially "meeting" him in 1988.
