American R&B singer/songwriter VEDO has a smooth, romantic style reminiscent of Usher, who acted as his coach on the fourth season of NBC's The Voice. His first album, 93, followed in 2015.
A native of Benton Harbor, Michigan, VEDO began singing at the age of nine. After a transient childhood, he settled in Atlanta for high school, a period during which he worked at honing his singing and songwriting skills. He first rose to public attention in 2013 on the strength of his performances on the TV singing competition The Voice. After his Top 12 finish, he signed with indie label Platinum Power Moves and recorded his debut LP, 93. It saw release in 2015.
In 2016, VEDO followed up with the State of Mind EP before issuing his second full-length, From Now On, a year later. He returned with an eponymous album in 2019. ~ Timothy Monger
