There's something about Kevon Edmonds' voice. A certain tone, a sublime familiarity way beyond the singer/songwriter's work as a lead vocalist in the hit trio After 7; beyond Milestone, the supergroup he augmented, which scored the 1997 hit, "I Care About You" from the film, "Soul Food." It is a cosmopolitan wonder, that voice. Listen to Kevon's debut RCA solo album, 24/7 and consider the notion. That supple voice is the crucial center of an all-star assemblage of songwriters, producers and players on 24/7 that includes Kevon's brother, the unrelenting Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, who is also his duet partner during the sumptuous ballad "A Girl Like You"; hitmakers Daryl Simmons (Boyz II Men, Toni Braxton) and Tim & Bob (TLC, Jon B., Monica), with contributions from Walter Afanasieff (Mariah Carey), ambitious comers Damon Thomas, Tommy Sims, Marc Harris, Robin Thicke, Greg Curtis, Angelo Ray and A-list musicians Greg Phillinganes, Nathan East, Ricky Lawson and Michael Thompson. Kevon hails from Indianapolis, Indiana, not exactly renowned as a cradle of soul music, but certainly a place where a young singer might unwittingly hone a style that effortlessly crosses the boundaries of R&B and pop. Of six brothers, three of them -- Kevon, Kenneth and Melvin --would go on to sing professionally.
