This is just a small glimpse into some of his accolades as an artist.
Aaron believes that his music is a breath of fresh air, and other would agree using such words as "refreshing" and "easy listening" to describe what they hear when listening to Aaron. The sign of true musicianship is that of one who can create not a new sound, but a culture of music that is non exclusive and yet consistant with the times. Aaron is at the forefront of making sure that his music does just that.
The music (ministry) of Aaron Sledge has a unique and defenitive purpose, and though it entails much, it can be sumed up in just a short brief statement.
The mission of the music is to RESCUE & RECOVER those that are lost, those that have been wounded, and those that feel that they have exhausted every avenue of changing their lives.
The sound of the music that God has given Aaron can be referred to as OXYGEN MUSIC, given life, giving breath, and giving hope to a new genre of music.
