BIOGRAPHY

Like many before him, Aleon Craft has traveled far and experienced a lot, both in the music and in life. Music has taken Craft across the US, Planet Earth and Galaxy. He has always been enchanted by music. As a child, Annie Clyde, a DJ at the Elks Lodge on Auburn Avenue, not too far from his house, exposed Craft to the wonders of music, and taught him to appreciate different genres and varieties of music.

Nevertheless, Craft’s musical journey can be traced back to 1998 when he joined forces with his cousin, ShoNuff, to form the duo, Da Backwudz. At that time Craft was better known by his alias, “Big Marc.” In the year 2005, Da Backwudz caught the eye of Atlanta super- producer Dallas Austin who signed the duo to his label, Rowdy Records. While working on their debut album, Craft was able to work with some of the most talented hip-hop producers DJ Toomp, Rico Wade, Mr. DJ and artists including Nas, Slim Thug, Bun B, Big Gipp, Killer Mike, Sleepy Brown, George Clinton.

The years that followed took Craft to a lot of places, and down many different roads. He began the search for a new direction and inspiration. His musical expedition took him from Decatur to the outer limits of the galaxy, and back. 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.

“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,” says Aleon Craft.
