Grammy-nominated Baltimore native Karter Jaymes is living out his second remarkable musical life. His first was as the main drummer and frequent co-songwriter for R&B legend Teddy Pendergrass. A picture of Karter on stage with Pendergrass and Stevie Wonder is a precious reminder of that time. His songs have been covered and sampled by the likes of contemporary R&B star Jaheim, hip hop legends De La Soul and producer Jermaine Dupri.
These days he graces the stage with acoustic guitar in hand, using his smooth yet gritty voice to sing original songs bursting with melody, imagery, and wisdom. Karter’s warm, conversational stage style and first-class mix of soul, blues and folk make him a can’t-miss solo act.
For the first time in 35 yrs two original members from The Teddy Pendergrass live band, Robert Legrand (WaWa ) and Alfie Pollitt, will share the stage, performing songs that Mr. Jaymes wrote and recorded with Pendergrass.
