Aaron Lebos is a well-known guitarist born and raised in South Florida. He began studying piano with Sarah Salz at the age of 5 before switching to guitar at age 11. He was introduced to jazz at Miami Dade College and studied here with Professor Di Liddo. He went on to receive a bachelor's degree from the University of Miami and a master's at Florida International University, both in jazz performance.

Lebos developed much of his versatility playing gigs and touring and recording in the diverse South Florida music scene, playing a wide range of music from rock, jazz and funk to Afro-Peruvian and country – and everything in between. Upon releasing his first two albums in 2010, he formed a new group, Aaron Lebos Reality, with some of Miami's best musicians. The new sound is more contemporary than that of his previous group and includes many diverse elements, including funk, rock, jazz and even one reggaeton song. The band has quickly exploded in the jazz and mainstream music scene and is now touring and doing clinics in support of their new self-titled album, Aaron Lebos Reality.
