Born Eton Gordon on August 11, 1984, CALADO was born to be a star.
Originally from Maxfield Park in Kingston , Jamaica, he moved to Clarendon at four years old. After graduating from Edwin Allen High School at age 16, with CXC Hours for Art & Craft, he moved back to Kingston to pursue a visual arts career. But, fate was pulling him in another direction. He was soon to find out he had not been completely off track instead of visual arts, Calado was destined to become a performing artist. Instead of drawing, which he continues to do today, he become a musician- a promising young act on the dancehall scene.
Calado developed his love for music after an impromptu performance for several of his friends. Startled by his raw talent, they encouraged him to continue to hone his art. Which he did; and after an exhilarating performance at a local stage show, Gordon received a further nod from fate when his performance was so well received and he was invited to perform at a national talent show Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall.
His journey has been a long one and not easy. He has had to endure social and economic struggles, compounded by absentee parents- a painful struggle that he uses as motivation and act as inspiration for his music.
So look, listen and learn, Calado is on his way, armed with a unique perspective, hard hitting lyrics and an energetic act. No one can say it better than Calado himself: “Look out for me. I’m coming to stand on the world, and if I get tired, I sit in the throne.”
