You know when the iconic soul man Charlie Wilson calls you one of the most talented artists in the business that you are truly special. Affectionately dubbed The Soul Prince, Multi-Grammy Award-nominated singer/songwriter Calvin Richardson has been delighting fans with his straight-shooting no holds barred southern soul for close to two decades. USA Today declared Richardson is influenced by vintage R&B and his gritty vocals set him apart from his smoother contemporaries...fresh vibes from a singer who respects and values his roots. He met and became friends with Cedric K-Ci Hailey and Joel Jo JoHailey, who went on to form the hit-making group Jodeci in the early 90s. Calvin was inspired by their success to form the urban contemporary vocal group Undacova, whose song Love Slave was included in the New Jersey Drive soundtrack in 1995. When Undacova folded, Calvin launched a solo career that resulted in his debut solo album Country Boy on Uptown/Universal Records in 1999. The album included a great cover of Bobby Womack's I Wish He Didn't Trust Me So Much. While Calvin was working on this follow-up, Angie Stone heard a demo of his song More Than A Woman and invited him to duet with her on a version of the song for her album Mahogany Soul.
