Music is life, and life is music…”
ATribute to Aaron-Carl with commandyoursoul Djs Flo Chinga and Dent
“There´s something to be said about a person who bares his soul to the world,” Aaron-Carl Ragland wrote when launching his personal blog in August of 2005. Being candid was a familiar experience. As an acclaimed musician and record label owner, as well as a friend, father and partner, Aaron-Carl wasn´t afraid to put himself into his art or speak his mind. Through his intensely personal lyrics and heart pounding beats he formed connections with audiences around the world. Despite his considerable reputation it was always the real person on display, his raw emotions and experiences inspired dozens of records. Approachable and patient, generous with his time, it was difficult not to become his friend, whether you were an an artist looking for advice, a fan willing to say hello, or a journalist pointing a recorder at him. Even in the age of social networking when audiences expect their artists to regularly reveal personal minutiae, Aaron-Carl´s “bittersoulfulsweet” candor stood out.
