Oakland, California native, Armand Carr, is affectionately known as “The Voice” and regarded as the most recognizable voice in the San Francisco Bay Area. After a very successful and impressive radio career in Los Angeles working with notables such as Steve Harvey, MC Lyte, LaLa Anthony, and a host of others, Armand decided to continue his career at his home base…The Bay Area.

As the voice behind the Quiet Storm on KBLX 102.9FM, his baritone, yet silky voice, reverberated through our  speakers nightly as he took his listeners on a musical journey. As an on-air personality, he was inspired to be more than just a voice on the radio and made a commitment to be a voice for the voiceless in the community.

In 2016 Armand founded All Tied Up, a non-profit that prepares young men of color for success. Through All Tied Up, Armand has visited more than 125 schools and programs throughout the Bay Area and donated more than 6,000 ties and 4,000 hygiene kits. He reminds us to tap into the power of self-belief and the importance of using that power to help others.

Armand is a 2017 Jefferson Award recipient, named 2017 Black Enterprise 100 Men of Distinction, received the 2017 Certificate of Special Recognition by Congresswoman Barbara Lee for his work in combatting human trafficking, 2018 Chabot College “Striving Black Brothers Coalition Man of The Year”, 2019 Steph Curry/Under Armour Community All-Star Award, recipient of the 2020 Certificate of Recognition for Community Service by the University of California Office of the President, and most recently, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf proclaimed May 16th “Armand Carr Day” in the city of Oakland.
