The “Kings Of R’n’B” tour returns to the UK with R’n’B legends Joe, Jagged Edge and Ginuwine. Joe fans will get their first chance to hear him perform tracks from his newly released album ‘Bridges’, as well as classics from his previous albums.
Jagged Edge is an American R&B singing group that were originally signed through Jermaine Dupri’s So So Def Records to Columbia Records. The group is made up of twin lead singers Brian Casey (nicknamed Brasco) and Brandon Casey (Case Dinero) (both born October 13, 1975), Kyle Norman (Quick), and Richard Wingo (Wingo).
Wingo was a late addition to the group, added after Kandi Burruss of Xscape recommended he be added. Kandi was also the one who brought the group to the attention of Dupri. The group, with a style similar to New Edition, Jodeci, and Dru Hill, has had a number of hit singles, many of which are produced by Dupri.
Identical twin brothers Brian Casey and Brandon Casey, Kyle Norman, and Richard Wingo—known collectively as Jagged Edge—have built the group’s career and reputation from one simple premise: make great music and make sure the music’s for real.
Joe was born on the 5th July 1972 and is a native of Cuthbert, Georgia and later moved to Opelika, Alabama. The son of two preachers, Joe spent much time in church singing, playing guitar, and even directing the choir. He was influenced in his early career by gospel performers such as: The Winans, Commissioned, and Vanessa Bell Armstrong. Joe also grew to love soul legends like Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye as well as contemporary stars such as Bobby Brown and Keith Sweat.
