Once upon a time there was a boy named Ramón.
When Ramón was very young his father would sing him to
sleep with the aid of an old acoustic guitar. When Ramón
couldn't sleep his grandmother would give him a glass of warm
milk and whisper soft Spanish lullabies in his ear. In the mornings
when Ramón would want to sit and watch cartoons, his
mother would sometimes suggest instead a musical like The Sound
of Music, Singing in the Rain, An American in Paris, or Oliver
Twist, and Ramón would fall asleep. Sometimes they would
watch cartoons like Pinocchio or Snow White, but he would still
fall asleep. Ramón seemed to fall asleep whenever he
listened to music. This, my dear little friend, was not because
Ramón was bored by music. Ramón loved music. It
was in his bones. It cried from his mouth and beat in his heart.
See, Ramón fell asleep whenever he listened to music
because he loved to dream too. He would dream of the songs that
filled his head, and dream of the sights that paired with them.
He would dream of far off places, and painted landscapes, and
fun adventures, but music would always be there, in the background,
off in the distance, creating the feelings that made life beautiful
As Ramón got older he learned how to make his own
music. He began to travel, and his dreams came true. Now he
was helping create that feeling off in the background. That
feeling that makes life beautiful to him.
Ramón Vicente Alarcón was born on February
17, 1984 in Kingman, AZ. As a gift, he received a little handmade
guitar from Mexico when he was an infant. At the age of 9
he began to learn how to play songs, and at the age of 11
he began writing his own. After playing in several bands,
Ramón started working on a project where he would tell
a story. This project he named after his grandmother, Ramona
Córdova, and the story he named The
Boy Who Floated Freely. A story that very well could have
been a dream Ramón once had. A story filled with gypsies,
magic, love and adventure. A story that just might become
the backdrop to some of your greatest adventures.
