A Quick Word About Nardo:
Born Bernard Calvin Eure III, singer, songwriter, emcee, and producer Nardo Says came of age in Norfolk, Virginia where he began singing in church. Always the creative, he learned how to play the drums as a teenager and started writing poems in high school which later turned to raps. Under the name Bobby Blunt, he released a series of EPs that grabbed attention. However, he wanted to incorporate a melodic sound that utilized singing and harmonies more than the hard rhymes and beats people expected from him. Out of that want to explore more, Nardo Says was created to represent growth as both a man and an artist. Now with releases like “A Mind’s Canvas“, “Side A“, “Possibilities“, and soon to be released "You Still Do Music" his sound continues to develop and evolve.
