r'kardo st.Von

Jazz fusion singer/ songwriter r’kardo st.Von grew up in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, where his passion for music and performance was developed by an eclectic exposure to different genres from the early age of 8. In Trinidad, he worked and trained with music teachers Barbara Harris and Myrtle Cumberbatch, acclaimed musicologist Geraldine O’Connor, and Stella Award winning songwriter Sterling Gittens.

This progression culminated with him earning a BA in Theatre Arts from New York's Marymount College, jazz performance and musical theatre training from Musical Theatre Works Tony nominated director Lonny Price, and work with 'Rent' alumni, actress/ singer Fredi Walker-Browne. His focus for the last five years has been centered on his music career as a jazz fusion singer/ songwriter, and he is steadily making his mark felt on the performance circuit.

r’kardo has performed at New York’s own Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), Cami Hall, LIU’s Kumble Theatre, funk poetry spot The Chocolate Monkey, The Village Underground, Ashford & Simpson’s Sugar Bar, and the infamous Brooklyn Moon Café with his jazz fusion band ‘the rhapsodie collective’. In Trinidad, he staged his own showcases at the 51 Degrees Nightclub & La Casa de Ibiza, and headlined July 2009 ‘Jazz in July’ at Queen’s Hall with soul diva Cheryl ‘Pepsi’ Riley and March 2010 at Production One’s annual ‘Jazz Artistes on the Greens’ at the UWI campus, St. Augustine.

In November 2010, he co-produced and performed in the very well-received ‘Tambran Seed Sessions 2010’, a jazz/ pop/ Caribbean music semi-improv collaboration. July 2011 he produced and performed in ‘The Lady and the Tramp’ with fellow Trinidadian, jazz chanteuse Vaughnette Bigford at ART South Oxford Space in Brooklyn, and September self- produced and performed in ‘Mood Indigo – The magic of Nina Simone’ a dance/ live vocal/ improv collaborative homage to Nina Simone featuring a stellar cast including Karen Bernod, Fredi Walker-Browne, and choregrapher/ singer Francesca Harper. His most recent performance achievement however was as a feature act in the 2014 Tobago Jazz Festival where he shared the stage with 2013's 'The Voice' winner Tessanne Chin and wowed a crowd of 15,000 patrons plus. This is his second appearance at the Blue Note after a well-received and well-attended debut last summer over the Labor Day weekend, and will feature work from his upcoming jazz EP, 'rkardomuzik'.
