Kevon Edmonds Biography – Kevon Edmonds Wiki
Kevon Edmonds is an American singer, songwriter, producer, and actor. He formed the R&B group After 7 with his brother Melvin and classmate Keith Mitchell while attending Indiana University in 1988. As lead singer, he took the ensemble to the Top 10 singles chart eleven times — twice to Number One with “Ready or Not” and “Can’t Stop.” Signed to Virgin Records and a production deal with LaFace — L.A. Reid and sibling Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds — who penned their chart-topping hits, After 7 enjoyed two Gold albums, a multi-Platinum album, three Gold movie soundtracks, and successful tours.
When the band dissolved in 1997, Kevon worked with LaFace productions, contributing to film soundtracks, adding background vocals to LaFace artists’ albums, gathering talent for studio-session choirs, and acting as a songwriter and executive co-producer (with Babyface) on his RCA Records solo debut, 24/7. The 1999 release was certified Gold, and the title track climbed to #2 on the charts.
Edmonds’ second solo CD, Who Knew, was released on October 13, 2009, through Make Entertainment/Image Distribution. His goal in creating Who Knew was to bridge the gap between classic R&B and today’s interpretation of the genre. He said, “R&B brings love back into music as a topic of discussion that comes with respect and appreciation. I would like to bring that to the core of young listeners whose music does not necessarily speak about love in a fashionable way, that isn’t tasteful, that does not appreciate women and love itself. Musically, I’m holding on to the music I’ve known. Some of my new songs have a more mature approach for the older listener, but some of them also open up the younger listener to where this music comes from. The bridge comes in creating fresh music with a youthful approach while at the same time not going against the grain of what mature listeners appreciate.”
