I know I’m probably giving my age away, but who cares. Holla for those who know about 45’s! Remember losing the adapter and having to put your finger in the middle while it was spinning to keep it from wobbling? LOL! Say what you wanna, but that was some
NOTES
In one word Solomon’s music can be described as UniverSoul ~ “one universal sound that soothes the soul.“ The language of his music is universal. He is a musician who makes no boasts about his musical talent, but credits his Daddy (Jehovah) for blessing him with the ability to do what he ­does. A native of Bridgeport, Connecticut, Solomon grew up as a PK (Preacher’s Kid) and was exposed to the ministry of music early in his childhood. He is the oldest of three siblings and began playing the bass guitar at age 15 with his family’s gospel quartet, The Edmond Family. Solomon’s passion for playing the keyboard ultimately lead him to a career as a minister of ­music for over 25 years. He has since began focusing on the creation and production of the music that has always been a part of his being yet was forbidden to express...Love Songs and Life Music!

In 1977, he moved to Atlanta, Georgia to attend the Atlanta College of Arts and pursue a degree in graphic design. He was very excited about a promising future as a design artist and dreamed of one day owning his own graphic design company. But little did he know, there would be a divine interruption of his plans – one that almost took his life. While attending college, Solomon became deathly ill and had to drop out of school. He moved back home with his parents in South Georgia and was convalescent for several ­years. He was finally diagnosed with Sarcoidosis of the lungs. As a result of this incurable disease, he lost partial use of his lungs, glands and total use of his left eye. It was then that Solomon realized how useless he was without his creator. A total surrender was inevitable. God restored to him the use of his glands and the joy of ­salvation.

Solomon made his debut in the “Life Music” category with his release of Together Again in 2007, a soulful compilation of jazz, rooted in gospel with a mild mix of Latin and R&B beats. The CD is a tribute to his first cousin, Jonathan Dubose. They grew up together in Bridgeport. After many years of separation, the two have come Together Again on this project. Jonathan is the baddest guitarist in the land. He is also known in the gospel industry as the prophesying ­guitarist. Solomon expanded his horizons with his second CD entitled “Love Language” in 2010. Continuing in the same “Life Music” genre, he has released his latest release is entitled “The B-Side.”
