Shanachie Records, the independent label that is the home of the most recent releases of Phil Perry, Deniece Williams and Hil St. Soul, has partnered with San Francisco-based INgrooves for exclusive digital distribution of the Shanachie catalog. The first fruit of the relationship is a spotlight position on iTunes for Shanachie artist Calvin Richardson, whose When Love Comes was a top seller on SoulTracks last year and which is getting a new lease on life in digital format at iTunes.
It is another development in the growing acceptance of mp3s and other digital formats in the soul music world for both newer artists as well as traditional soul singers. Click on the icon below to see Calvin Richardson's spotlight at iTunes.
