Cedryl Ballou was born in Lake Charles, LA, on March 19, 1983. He made his music debut at the tender age of five years old. When Cedryl was 12, he was playing drums professionally with his Grandfather Classie Ballou Sr.

Cedryl's love for Zydeco music is in his blood. Being of Creole decent, he has been around Zydeco music all his life. He received his first accordian at 14. That accordian was all it took to make him the Zydeco man he is today.

Cedryl is now 25 years old and is playing to crowds throughout the Texas and Louisiana area. He has been playing Zydeco music professionally for three years and has released three albums. Cedryl had the first Zydeco video to air on television in Central Texas. He also owns Trendsetter Zydeco REcords, his own record label and publishing company.

Cedryl's band consists of: legendary guitarist Classie Ballou, Sr.; grandfather, Cedric Ballou; father (bass guitarist), Cam'Ron Ballou; cousin. As you can see this is definitely a family band and together they make "Cedryl Ballou and the Zydeco Trendsetters."

So if you hear Cedryl is in your town then put on your dancing shoes and go see him. I promise he puts on a show you will talk about for a long time.
