Songs About Family

Aaron's ancestor's on his father's mother's side of the family

Aaron’s ancestor’s on his father’s mother’s side

Without a doubt, Aaron writes a lot about family. From the unity of family to its dysfunction, from parental advice to a child’s fear of failing their parents  — these are just some of the topics he touches on. The scenes are just as varied: hospitals, Disney World, a small town, a frozen forest.

Below is a list of the top songs about family by Aaron Espe.
