About Into The Cole

Hailing from Chicago, Aaron began his singing career in church, much like so many before him. Before long he became the choir’s staple soloist and church members came far and wide to hear his musical interpretations of Gospel Music. His ambitions led him to Southern Illinois University where he completed his undergraduate studies in Music Business. He also found time to play basketball. Team members recall Aaron’s performance on the court as being impressive, yet it was clear to them all that music was his passion.

Moving to Los Angeles, Aaron endeavored to make his mark in the music industry. However, his refined looks and clever style landed him roles in a number of music videos, televisions specials and he even graced the screen alongside Academy Award Winner Gene Hackman in the feature film “SPLIT DECISIONS.”

Nonetheless, Aaron’s devotion to his music won out over any acting aspirations. He began writing his own music and performing in various nightclubs and other venues. His performances caught the attention of many including that of songwriter Henry Nemo, best known for his songs Don’t Take Your Love from Me, ‘Tis Autumn and I Let A Song Go Out Of My Heart. Nemo’s works have been recorded by Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole, Sarah Vaughn, Ella Fitzgerald and other greats. Mr. Nemo appreciated Aaron’s vocal stylings so much that he solicited Aaron to record some of his original compositions. The album, aptly titled MR. NOSTALGIA & FRIENDS, released on Nemo’s independent label Omen Records, contains tracks that had never before been released. Aaron had the honor of performing Mr. Nemo’s songs at a gala affair hosted by Milton Berle, where he wowed the crowd.

Aaron claimed Southern California as his proving ground and has long been recognized for his achievements. He was awarded the Golden Star Halo Award from the Southern California Motion Picture Council for his singing and composing abilities. Also, he was enlisted to sing a song for a CBS Movie of the Week for which he received much praise. Aaron has also opened for the Chairman of American Comedy and Mr. Humanitarian himself, Bob Hope, at the Hollywood Palladium for an event sponsored by the Big Ten Club of Southern California. Aaron has also contributed to various projects produced for Russell Simmons Television.

Aaron formed NAKICO records and produced his contemporary version of Mona Lisa and submitted the song to several radio stations. The song was immediately picked up and was so well received in the R&B and Jazz categories that it was placed in high rotation in multiple categories. WLGI, a station out of South Carolina, responded to the enthusiasm of its listeners by submitting Mona Lisa to BRE and Behind the Scenes magazines. BRE selected Mona Lisa for its annual compilation CD, BRE Conference 98, which included works by such Columbia artists as Destiny’s Child featuring Master P., Jermaine Dupri , Jay-Z, Xscape and Qwest artist Tamia, among others.

Aaron performed at the North Sea Jazz Festival and in Jakarta, Indonesia with the JAMZ ALL-STARS. He performed a duet with Sony recording artist Maribeth. Other artists performing with him at the festival included Eric Clapton, Herbie Hancock, Al Jarreau, Diana Krall and Bobby McFerrin.

Aaron was honored to perform the Vatican on Christmas Day, 1999 for the Great Jubilee, singing for the Pope along with such artists as Siedah Garrett and Darryl Phinnessee at St. Peter’s Basilica.

After the success of his Rome performance, Aaron was invited to record several classical pieces with the venerable Beppe Cantarelli.

Aaron has worked with Stan Lathan, Hollywood Director/Producer (The Steve Harvey Show, Roc, Def Comedy Jam and HBO Def Poetry Jam, among many others), partner of Russell Simmons. Stan was so impressed with Aaron’s music that he personally took a recording to Kurt Farquhar, Composer and Songwriter (King of Queens, Girlfriends, Soul Food, The Parkers and Moesha, among others). Aaron was signed to write and perform music for T.V. and films with Farquhar’s TRUE MUSIC label.

After R. Kelly introduced the Chicago style stepping to the world with the song “Stepping in the Name of Love” and stepping went mainstream, Aaron’s song “What the World Needs” became of the leading stepping anthems.

Aaron has twice been a featured performer at annual Music Benefit Concert and Awards galas of the American Society of Young Musicians.

A man of many talents and, as the saying goes, for all seasons, Aaron believes deeply that his music is a gift granted him which he must, in turn, share with others in any way that enables him to benefit others.

Aaron is proud to be a member of the TrueMusic family of Kurt Farquhar.
