(September 4, 2019) All great soulmen possess an earnest and instantly identifiable sound capable of permeating your very soul. Marvin, Teddy and Luther had it and singer/songwriter Calvin Richardson has it too. Uncle Charlie, the iconic Charlie Wilson, calls Calvin “one of the most talented artists in the business.”

(September 4, 2019) All great soulmen possess an earnest and instantly identifiable sound capable of permeating your very soul. Marvin, Teddy and Luther had it and singer/songwriter Calvin Richardson has it too. Uncle Charlie, the iconic Charlie Wilson, calls Calvin “one of the most talented artists in the business.”

Calvin says, “When I write, I’m writing for that hopeless romantic inside of me who deeply believes that love changes everything. I realized over the years that there are so many people out there that feel exactly as I do and who need that deep belief to be nurtured so that it can flourish. That’s why I just write from my heart.” The Grammy-nominated singer does just that on his romantic new single “Let Me Love On You.” “I found inspiration from my own relationship and the fact that everyone wants a successful relationship. The more you love on your mate, the better your relationship is going to be,” shares Calvin.

Fans of Calvin Richardson will be delighted to know that he is back at full capacity after having lost his voice in early 2018. “This was the first album that I ever made where I felt pressure because of my touring schedule, and being occupied by writing my very first book, Do You Without Them, and the fact that I had lost my voice which carried over into this year. I had to work with much less than 100% of my ability but creatively I was still there.

On October 25, 2019 Shanachie Entertainment will release Calvin Richardson’s new CD Gold Dust, proving with every note why he has earned the title “The Soul Prince.” Calvin explains that when he signed the deal for the recording he gave himself a six-week window to complete it. “After my hit single “Can’t Let Go,” I definitely started off feeling the pressure. You know they say pressure burst pipes and I thought if this pipe bursts, it would be filled with Gold-Dust!”
