Karlos Edwards

Karlos discovered his love for music at a very young age, he’d often watch the musicians play at the Pentecostal church his family attended for years, He never had music lessons at school but developed a keen ear for music by the age of 10.

 

His older brothers formed a band called ‘Paradise’ and often he’d just sit and watch them play and rehearse, There was no more instruments to play in the band so he started playing bottles and tins which over the years eventually morphed into percussion, Whilst attending school Paradise had a hit single and got to 42 in the national charts, By the age of 15 Karlos fell in love with the band Earth, Wind and Fire and studied their style and sound for years to come.

 

After leaving school Karlos was destined for the music industry and secured his first major tour aged 19 with Aztec Camera, Since then Karlos has learned to play several other instruments and become a writer/producer also. Karlos’s career as a percussionist/drummer has spanned over 25 years touring and recording with Robert Palmer, Take That, Olly Murs, Ronan Keating, Spice Girls, Boyzone, Duffy, Kim Wilde, Prefab Sprout, Omar, Danny Wilson, Geri Halliwell, Will Young, Nitin Sawhney, Loose Ends, Lulu, Beverly Knight, LCGC, Brand New Heavies, Mark Ronson and several other top artists over the years.
