The Road to A3C: Aleon Craft

DJBooth is proud to announce that the Aleon Craft will be rocking on our stage for this year's A3C Festival in Atlanta. Like many before him, Aleon Craft has traveled far and experienced a lot. Music has taken Craft across the US, Planet Earth and Galaxy. In 2005 his group Da Backwudz caught the eye of Atlanta super-producer Dallas Austin. Impressed with what he heard, Dallas signed Da Backwudz to a record deal with his label, Rowdy Records. Though the resulting album achieved a certain level of success, and propelled Da Backwudz into the national spotlight, Craft found himself, like many before him, abandoned by the music industry machine and without a musical direction.

In the years that followed Craft experimented with other artists, but ultimately decided to navigate the journey as a solo artist, which allowed him to create his own style and genre of music…Solar-Hop. Today, when Craft is not in traveling the galaxy looking for new inspiration or spending time with his family and loved ones, he is experimenting with music and chronicling his stories: “I just want to make a living making songs. Whatever doors open up from me doing music, I’ll most definitely walk through them proudly."
