DJBooth is proud to announce that the
will be rocking on
for this year's
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,
. 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."
