Aram Shelton started playing tenor saxophone when he was ten years old, repeatedly enduring the comment "that thing is as big as you are". Later switching to alto, Shelton moved to Chicago in 1999 and has been an active member of the creative music scene. In the past four years he has added clarinet to his arsenal, and as a composer has begun to incorporate electronics into his music. In addition to Rapid Croche, Aram performs with Daisy and Jason Ajemian in Dragons 1976, and with Johnathan Crawford in the duo Grey Ghost. He has performed with Matt Bauder's Weary Already of the Way, The Chicago Improvisers Group, Keefe Jackson's Project Project and Scott Rosenberg's Large Ensemble. He has performed with Guillermo Gregorio, Ken Vandermark, Jeb Bishop, Matt Lux, Jacopo Andreini, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Medeski, Martin & Wood, Jeff Parker, Ernst Karel, Doug Scharin, Steven Bernstein, Chris Jonas, Dave Pavkovic, Marc Unternauer, Jim Baker, Josh Abrams, and Todd Margasak.
