THIS IS ME
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’s official musical career started with the release of his album Together Again (2007), a soulful compilation of jazz, rooted in gospel with a mild mix of Latin and R&B beats. Hard work has certainly paid off as Solomon has had a couple of number 1 hits in the UK, "If I Fall" and "It Ain’t in Me". Solex’s album “Full Moon" made it to the SmoothJazz.com Year End Top 100 Album Chart, landing at #55. His emotional experiences add a personal and soulful touch to all of his music. Inspired by music giants Earth, Wind & Fire, George Duke, and Brian Culbertson, this solo artist seeks to create music that masterfully incorporates harmonies, cleverly chosen instrumentation, and beautifully harnessed chord progressions to inspire his audience.
