Key of Gee E-Zine Review
Here’s a review form the Urban Organic Festival…

…Crockett was in Detroit for the Urban Organic Weekend. When I interviewed her… I thought OK – she is a nice quiet, laid-back…

But, wow when Alison walked on stage to sing – girl friend morphed into this energetic Diva… Everyone that came after her, had step up their vocal game – cause she brought it.

OK, it’s March now. Can you believe the time has moved so fast?! We’re working hard on the next recording which is on the horizon…I was just working on the last song…it’s a masterpiece…atleast to me. Just you wait…

This spring I have a some things happening as I finish up this new record. I’ll be doing my first gig in Virginia with my road dog “chickenologist”, John Bibbs. I’ll also be putting my teaching hat on, giving a workshop in Maryland about the workings of Jazz voice. Fascinating stuff the voice is…atleast to me.

I have some dayes coming up around the country so if you haven’t seen me in your town, don’t give up on me….

With Much Love,

Calvin Richardson Returns!

Let me know if you can post the streaming audio of his first single, “Sang No More” from the upcoming album “When Love Comes” dropping May 24th on Shanachie:
Calvin Richardson, well known to his legions as “The Prince Of R&B,” is one of the finest true soul singers to emerge during the past decade. His last album, “2:35 AM,” easily debuted on the Top Ten of the Billboard R&B albums chart cementing his place as one of the genre’s leading men. Calvin also scored with “More Than A Woman,” his duet with Angie Stone from her acclaimed “Mahogany Soul” album, as well as his guest vocals on Raphael Saddiq’s “Instant Vintage” album and Pieces Of A Dream’s “Ahead To The Past.” He also appeared on the soundtracks of such films as “Bringing Down The House” and “Go To The Club,” further exposing his unique sound and delivery to a widespread audience.
Calvin’s Shanachie debut “When Love Comes” is Calvin’s follow-up album to “2:35 AM” and is clearly his finest artistic statement yet as a recording artist. He displays his deep-soul roots on an original set of sexy and romantic tracks aimed squarely at his sizable, largely female fan-base. Standout cuts include “Sang No More,” “Sexy Love” and his ode to fatherhood “Daddy To My Kids.”
“Sang No More,” the first single, will be worked to Urban AC radio nationally creating surefire exposure for this dynamic project. There will also be a video for “Sang No More” that will be serviced and worked to BET, BET-J,VH-1 Soul and all appropriate video outlets nationally, including You Tube, iTunes etc.
Calvin has established a national touring profile, playing with such artists as Reuben Studdard, Raphael Saddiq, Angie Stone and many others. He will be supporting the release of “When Love Comes” with live performances nationwide.

Global Soul scene explodes @ LIBATION

Dear Friends:
In April 2006, Tea Party Music (the record label that brought us the dance floor classics “Life Start’s Today” and “Theorema Del Faya”) and Manchildblack (recording artist of the West End Records joint “Rain” and promoter of the long running ALMA NYC party) joined forces to create an event that is now considered the Mecca of NYC’s Global Soul Culture, LIBATION. Every second and fourth Thursday of the month resident DJ Ian Friday digs deep in the crates of his eclectic collection to explore the multi-dimensional sounds of this music and invite all to dance, shout and exalt in its majesty! Global Soul is a form of dance music deeply rooted in the rhythms of the African Diaspora. With influences from Africa, the Caribbean, South and Central America, it is a music that celebrates the rich history of a people and their culture.

Currently held at the infamous LES nightspot, Sapphire Lounge,
LIBATION is an event that gives its patrons a full course of aural and visual stimulation. As Ian keeps the dance floor in a frenzy, guests are treated to the agile moves of world renown dance collective and LIBATION hosts, Afro Mosaic Soul. The party’s artist-in-residence is none other than MTV Art Battle Winner, Concep, who along with his crew, Collaborative Arts Project, is always on hand to paint live on canvass or even on the body parts of willing participants. LIBATION has even exhibited the stunning photography of nightlife provocateur, Human, and Jae of Moon Rising NYC. In only two years of existence, the party has also had the pleasure of presenting some of Global Soul’s most influential and well respected DJs and performers including: DJ Spinna, Rich Medina, Karizma, Eric (Erro) Roberson, Stephanie McKay, Wunmi, Sara Devine and even legendary DJ/producer, Osunlade.
LIBATION will host two events at this year’s Winter Music Conference in Miami, and have plans for a huge anniversary bash in New York this April 24th, featuring a special live performance by the exraordinary performer, Peven Everett, and his band. LIBATION and it’s organizers are definitely ones to watch this year as their event – and Global Soul movement of which they are a part of creating – continues to expand and grow worldwide.
Kind Regards,
