Aaron Nigel Smith Talks Portland and “I Can’t Breathe”
Many know Aaron Nigel Smith because of his work in songs for kids. The talented musician and singer has several children’s albums, including a new one just released. But in 2019, he released his first solo reggae album, which went straight to No. 1 on the Billboard Reggae chart. Smith lives in Portland, which has been a city besieged by Federal stormtroopers who targeted protestors there after the Memorial Day murder of George Floyd in Minnesota. Smith talks about living in Portland, his music, and plays his new song, “I Can’t Breathe,” which is a direct response to the Floyd murder.
