Biography

Originally trained to be a graphic designer at the Atlanta College of Art, a near-death experience took this artist back to his first love, music. Solomon grew up with music at the heart of the family’s Gospel ministry, in his native Bridgeport, Connecticut. This early exposure to music led this eldest son of a preacher to begin playing the bass guitar at age 15 with his family’s gospel quartet, The Edmond Family. His passion for playing the keyboard ultimately led him to a career as a Minister of Music for over 25 years as well as a Music Director for stage plays.

Solomon treats each day as a gift with his mission to inspire and move others. He embraced a unique opportunity for rebirth, that led him to create an original blend of genres inspired by Gospel, Jazz, Neo-Soul, RnB, and Soft Rock. His emotional experiences add a personal and soulful touch to all of his music.

Inspired by music giants Earth, Wind & Fire and George Duke, this solo artist seeks to create music that masterfully incorporates harmonies, speaks of various genres of life, cleverly chosen instrumentation, and beautifully harnessed chord progressions to move his audience like he first was hearing his idols. And although his long term goal is to write, arrange, and produce for up and coming artists, Solomon will keep creating and sharing his sound, speaking to the listener’s soul and dreams.
