About Artist

There are certain singers whom we feel that we connect with from the very first time we hear them. As the intimacy of their delivery and the subtle shading of their interpretation draw us in, a whole personality seems to take shape in our imagination….  This is Fernando...

 The Story... 

Fernando Cardo was born in 1978 in Cordoba, . Fernando was interested in music from an early age and as a boy built himself a one-string instrument. He began singing in city hall of Cordoba choirs at age five. He also sung in multiple choirs throughout high school and college.  

From the start, soul music captivated him and as a result, he would research and learn from the work of artists such as Aretha Franklin, Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Take 6, George Benson, Patti Labelle, Whitney Houston, Luther Vandross, Al Green, Will Downing, Brian McKnight, and many more. Allowing these legends to shape and mold him, enabled Fernando to develop his strong vocals and the highest standard of excellence with a personal style unique to who he is and a passion for connecting with others and sharing life’s experience through music.  

Since early in his career, he has convoked for the celebrated director “Hugo De La Vega ” to be part of the Polyphonic Choir of the “Libertador San Martín” Theater (one of the most important theaters in Argentina)   

In 2003, Fernando was solely chosen to represent Córdoba, in the talent TV Show “POPSTARS”, Buenos Aires . He was awarded the finalist place out of 5,000 artists countrywide. The judges of the show encouraged him to pursue a professional career as a solo artist.

 In the summer of 2003 Fernando auditioned for Cordoba Gospel Choir and was chosen to be a member of the group. He has performed several shows at top venues across the country with them for over four years and has collaborated with them on two albums  and singing as a soloist on several tracks.

 During this period, Fernando and Cordoba Gospel Choir had the privilege of working with the Harlem Gospel Choir and Gregory Hopkins’ Greatest Voices of Gospel. At the same time Fernando appeared regularly with the popular Funk & Soul band “Oversoul” as a lead singer. Since 2004 to the present Fernando consistently lends his talents to many commercial Jingles, sings backgrounds vocals for major labels as well as arranging.

 In 2007 he moved to Buenos Aires to improve and develop his career as a solo artist. During the last year he has worked on various projects with Soul and R&B musicians nationwide and globally.

 Most recently he had the privilege of singing with the classic R&B and Soul singer “Ollan Christopher Bell”, an original member of the “Natural Fours” while touring in Argentina.

 Fernando is now in the process of recording his first solo album. Prepare to experience lush vocals and smooth grooves, straight from the heart of soul music, Fernando style!
