David von Mering and Carter Schultz of Wayland, MA create music that finds its roots in reggae, acoustic pop and indie rock, with smooth guitar riffs and a strong rap component. After releasing their mixtapes "Water On The Moon" and "The Reach" in late-2010 and mid-2011 respectively, the guys proceeded to release their first iTunes EP "What You Need" in October of 2011. "What You Need" would go on to reach the #1 spot on iTunes hip-hop charts, launching Aer onto an East Coast tour alongside Ballyhoo! as well as their first headline tour of the Midwest. David and Carter started working on their debut full-length as soon as they got home (they showered first).
They finished just in time for a fun summer in 2012, playing Bamboozle and sharing the stage with Action Bronson, ASAP Rocky, and Iggy Azalea, and hitting the road with OCD: Moosh & Twist going to 37 cities, bringing them to their first shows on the West Coast and in the Southwest. Aer’s July 30th, 2012 debut album The Bright Side quickly rose to #1 on the iTunes Album Charts and earned a spot in Billboards Hot 100. It was followed by “The Bright Side Tour” which spanned over 48 cities across North America. Carter and David are 19, and have a lot more music to make.
