After meeting at Australia’s premier music schools, The Sydney Conservatorium of Music, the group of friends Eliza (violin), Michael (violin), Hanna (cello), Ella (piano), Dan (percussion, music arranger) and later Patrick (guitar) formed Aston as a way of opening classical music up to young people and audiences who may not have been exposed to classical music.

Early on in Aston’s career they were the house band on Australian TV show “The Matty Johns Show”, a Rugby League based program on Channel 7.

Aston’s first taste of international success came through YouTube where their cover of Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” went viral thanks to the help of gossip blogger Perez Hilton who featured it on his infamous website. A string of other videos then went viral, Rihanna’s “Rude Boy” & “Only Girl (In The World)”, Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida” as well as Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” gaining the group a legion of fans from all over the world.

Aston’s debut album released through Warner Music Australia reached No. 1 on Australian iTunes classical charts in 2010 and received glowing reviews from the media.

In 2011 Aston was invited by Perez Hilton to appear in his TV show All Access where the group met and played their famous cover of “Telephone” for Lady Gaga. After this meeting with the singing mega-star Aston went on to pay tribute to her by creating their most ambitious project, The Monster Symphony. The Monster Symphony is a 10 minute work created from just Lady Gaga songs. Together with film directors Nathan Hunt and Reece Farris, they married the music with an epic short film in which they also appeared.

Aston have also gone on to collaborate with other musicians including their videos with Youtube superstars, Karmin and Youtube’s most popular R’n’B group, Ahmir and have over 15 million views on all of their videos.

In 2012 ABC’s Dancing With The Stars featured Aston’s cover of David Guetta’s “Without You” which was specially recorded for the “Macy’s Stars of Dance” segment. The “So You Think You Can Dance” troupe Shaping Sounds performed to the track. The next week their arrangement of Bad Romance was also performed.
