Born Ederson Beauvois on january 23rd, 1986 in
Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Ederson spent his younger
years surrounded by the large and creative Beauvois
clan. Early musical influences ranged from classic
French soul music, beloved by his mother, to the
modern rhythms of traditional Haitian music he heard
from his brother Jon, a professional pianist.
When he was 10, his parents moved the family to the
US, where he spent some years in Florida. He later moved to Massachusetts where he attended high school in the city of Somerville, and still resides nearby. Living in the US, he was exposed to R&B legends Luther Vandross, Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Curtis Mayfield, and Baby Face among other R&B greats.
