Where: Bellingham, WA
Twenty-year-old Simon Ho grew up in a musical household. Dad used to build guitars, his sister was an R&B fanatic, and Ho himself played drums in the school marching band. That love of percussion led his father to buy him a copy of Reason 2.5—which Ho still uses to make tunes—and when combined with his discovery of juke a few years back, Cedaa's production style was born. Both his "Tiffany" b/w "Simba" single on Car Crash Set and Old Growth EP on Dave Quam's Free Bass offer a melodic, synth-infused take on Windy City sounds.
