Born Ederson Beauvois in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Ederson spent his younger years surrounded by the large and creative Beauvois clan. Early musical influences ranged from classic French soul music, beloved by his mother, to the modern rhythms of traditional Haitian music he heard from his brother John, a professional pianist.
When Ederson was 10, his parents moved the family to the US, where he spent some years in Florida. Ederson later moved to Massachusetts where he attended high school in the city of Somerville and still resides nearby.
Living in the US, Ederson was exposed to R&B legends Luther Vandross, Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Curtis Mayfield and Baby Face among other R&B greats. Ederson spent much of his high school years working alone, writing and singing. He was later discovered by his brother Marc Beauvois, also a songwriter, who immediately recognized Ederson’s natural talent and star power. Managing his career was the next logical step and they began working to develop Ederson’s youthful voice into the sophisticated and consistently wide vocal range he now controls.
Their first collaborative CD was “Out of the Darkness” in 2005 with Ederson producing all nine tracks as well as co-writing three of the songs. Most recently, he co-wrote “Definition of love,” “Secrets” & ”Let me ride” – his newest singles. All three songs will be part of a new album to be released in early 2012. Ederson’s unique sounds have been variously described as Jazz, Soul, or modern R&B, but none of these fully captures his elusive and captivating music.
Ederson’s diverse background and influences can most clearly be heard in his sophisticated approach to producing beats and melodies. His smooth combinations of pulse-racing bass and sultry vocals evoke hot nights and steamy encounters.
