Meet Aaron Bassett

Meet Aaron Bassett, known to many as Valed, a multi-talented artist hailing from Buffalo, NY. Valed’s journey into the world of music began during a transformative period of his life, where he found solace and expression through his art while incarcerated. It was during this time that his nickname ‘Valed’ emerged, becoming not only his moniker as a musician but also a symbol of resilience and personal growth.

Born and raised in Buffalo, Valed quickly gained recognition in his community for his exceptional skills as a self-taught barber. Armed with a natural talent and a passion for the craft, he became the go-to barber for many local celebrities, creating sharp and stylish haircuts that became synonymous with his name.

But Valed’s ambitions didn’t stop there. Driven by a desire to give back to his community, he hosted charitable events through his barbershop, using his platform to make a positive impact on the lives of others. This dedication to service and connection led him to open Fade in Full Barbershop, a thriving establishment nestled in one of the top neighborhoods, where Valed and his team of skilled barbers continue to elevate the art of grooming.

Drawing from his wealth of experiences as a musician, barber, and community advocate, Valed is now channeling his knowledge and expertise into his upcoming book, “The Barber Blueprint.” This groundbreaking work promises to be a comprehensive guide for aspiring barbers, offering insights and practical advice garnered from years of firsthand experience.

As an accomplished regional artist, Valed’s music projects have resonated with audiences, reflecting his introspective soulful style and honest storytelling. His dedication to his craft shines through in every lyric and melody, forging an emotional connection with listeners.
