Alfredo Adolfo Austin III, “Fredo,” is a soulful, gritty vocal powerhouse. Onstage, he holds nothing back; restraint is not in his vocabulary. Whether Motown, hip-hop, rock, or a ballad, Fredo takes you on a ride. His smoky, sensual mid-range supports his passionate wailing high notes; he can move and groove on stage with the best. Raised in Delaware by his Panamanian father and American mother, Fredo’s musical athleticism had its roots playing linebacker on the football field. He owes his distinctive sound to an elbow to the throat that left him with only one healthy vocal chord. Alfredo is not just cool; he’s also a geeky teddy bear, with an unforgettable smile. A closet left-brained genius, Fredo earned a degree in Music Business from the University of Delaware. His math mind and tech skills make him a stand-out recording engineer and music arranger. He is known for recording in his hotel room studio from midnight to dawn, roommate or not.
