I am Maron Gaffron. I'm a singer-songwriter from Chicago, IL. I am married with 2 children, and currently work as a teacher's aide in a special education classroom. I also lead worship in my local church. I began writing music as a child. Initially, I wrote mostly piano instrumentals, as a way to express things that I lacked the courage to express with words. I've come a long way since those days. Words and music are my expression. There is nothing that can not be used as inspiration for a song. From the mundane to the extraordinary, from the routine to the supernatural, God's omnipresence is revealed. I have written from a place of deep joy. I have written from a place of deep despair. I sing about victory. I sing about the times I have failed. I sing about grace.
My latest release, The Holding Pattern, was started back in the winter of '09, I believe. Then......well....life happened. Circumstances changed, priorities changed, and some things got pushed to the back-burner. Through the years, some wonderful people persisted that I finish this record. They were a constant encouragement to me, pushing me, praying for me, and offering financial support. I began to finish this album back in the winter of 2014. I have to give a HUGE shout out to Tom Cameron (Grrr Records) for getting this ball rolling so many years ago. Much love to every musician who added their talents to this project. And the biggest shout out of all to my dad (Mark Ditmars) who introduced me to Steve Watkins (Sanctuary Sound Studio) in Aurora, IL and put up the money to fund the rest of the recording and mastering of this album.
