Karlito Edwards

Love TKO

Karlito - featuring Natalie 'The Floacist' Williams & Ian Pitter

About the Project

How to make a British music maestro part 1:

  • Take 1 young brit and immerse him in the uplifting aura of the church
  • Encourage him to play guitar, bass, drums and percussion at an early age
  • By the age of 20 tour him around the globe as a session musician with world class acts
  • Add brandy and water to taste

Karlos ‘Karlito’ Edwards is a rare and gifted talent whose star is rapidly rising. How many could claim to have served their apprenticeship as a session musician for music giants such as Take That, The Pussycat Dolls, Duffy, Robert Palmer, and The Brand New Heavies?

On listening to the music arrangement on his current release ‘Love TKO’ you might initially believe you’re listening to the Teddy Pendergrass version. However Karlos has painstakingly replicated the original arrangement, playing almost all the instruments himself, and forgoing the more common and easier method of sampling.

Live strings interplay with outstanding musicianship. Then you are hit with the mesmeric vocal delivery of Natalie ‘The Floacist’ Williams’, uniquely performed style of spoken word. Rich sounding, velvet smooth vocals from Ian Pitter add the perfect gloss to what is an outstanding version of a much-loved soul classic.

About Karlos 'Karlito' Edwards

Karlos ‘Karlito’ Edwards developed his love affair with music during his formative years. Like so many artists before him, his earliest experience of playing and performing was at his local church.

Proficient in guitar, drums and bass from a young age, Karlos was exposed to a lot of different musical styles due to frequent collaborations with his older brothers and cousins – who were founder members of Paradise: a groundbreaking UK Gospel group back in the day.

Artists like: Earth, Wind & Fire, Quincy Jones and Herbie Hancock provided the creative spark that inspired Karlos to pursue a fulltime career in music. Still only twenty years old, Karlos was already touring the world with major artists playing both percussion and drums.

Playing for world-class artists over an extended period, allowed Karlos to gain invaluable experience in the art of record-making. Whilst enjoying a hugely successful career as a session musician, Karlos felt it was time to pay tribute to some of the artists who had inspired him as a teenager. His new album: ‘Karlito’s Way revisits much loved classics from the 80’s but adds a modern perspective – whilst preserving the original character of those wonderful gems.
