Who said R&B music is dead? Calvin Richardson will beg to differ. His latest release, Gold Dust, will definitely invoke some of those emotions. With today’s climate, an album like this is really needed to provide a release and just enjoy some great art.
Richardson calls this album an auditory manual for love. It is a gift from Calvin to his fans featuring a hearty ten-track recipe for love, fueled by experience and wisdom.
If you like the formula of heart felt lyrics sung over smooth grooves, than you will want to take a listen. Check out If You’re Thinking About Leaving. Richardson starts out with the lyrics “this is not just another love song.” How apropos as Calvin has made a name for himself singing love songs that magnify the deepest of emotions with his consistently flawless and soul-drenched tenor, delivering potent lyrics in a way only he can. Calvin explains, “I was raised surrounded by women – my mom, my grandmother, aunts, sister, cousins, church ladies etc. I learned the heartbeat of what makes women tick. The mystique of a woman versus her overt authenticity is what inspires me to address matters of the heart and much of what I learned is reflected in my music.” We are also sure that you will like Ain’t Nothin Like The One I’ve Got, a song that will be on your Sunday morning playlist.
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.” Be Your Friend and the Al Green inspired Still In Love shows his voice is back!
