Rise to Stardom

He used to perform live music around the UK. Aaron also used to stack shelves in a pound shop. However, before venturing into gaming, he was interested in music. He has also performed live in the UK. Aaron later turned toward video games and eventually built a career as a gamer.

Further, he started his career through YouTube, where he created his first channel on December 3, 2012. His channel was originally named ‘FearADubh,’ which is currently known as ‘AshDubh.’ The title originated from the combination of the word “fear,” “A” from his real name, and “dubh”, an Irish word meaning “black”. Moreover, he wanted the title to sound creepy and fearful, much like his content. Similarly, when he changed the genre of his game, he renamed it ‘AshDubh,’ as he wished to retain his name in the title.

Although this has restricted the variety of his content, he has still managed to build an impressive fan base.

Some of his gestures, such as screaming out loud, laughing like a girl, and being completely random, have been the highlights of his videos. Aaron has played as a helper in the ‘Minecraft’ series ‘Stampy’s Lovely World. He has also played games such as ‘Scrap Mechanic,’ ‘Rocket League,’ and ‘Grand Theft Auto (GTA) Races.’
