Aaron Carnes - In Defense Of Ska

Aaron Carnes is the author of In Defense of Ska, from CLASH! Publishing, a book that champions one of the world’s most maligned music genres.

Aaron is a music journalist based out of Sacramento, California. His work has appeared in Playboy, Salon, Bandcamp Daily, Sierra Club, Noisey and Sun Magazine. He’s also the music editor at Good Times Santa Cruz weekly newspaper, where he tries to sneak in ska content whenever his boss isn’t looking.

Aaron has been listening to ska since the early ’90s. He used to play drums in a ska band. Now he just plays ska on his car stereo.

When he’s not defending ska, he enjoys backpacking with his wife Amy Bee, and talking about music from every existing genre.

Though ska will always be his favorite.
