ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Singer, songwriter, producer, actor, Carlton J. Smith is often referred to as “Soul Brother Number New” for his hard-charging R&B act. His widely acclaimed R&B/Soul Revue shows are real crowd-pleasers.

Carlton is a very dynamic and engaging performer with a live show that exhibits both his stage presence and high energy from start to finish. He has been producing, hosting and performing in a series of R&B/Soul Revues since 2002 at the world renowned B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in New York City. Initially conceived as a one-show deal, his sold out performance inspired B.B. Kings Club to book him monthly for a series of tributes to the music of Al Green, James Brown, Curtis Mayfield, Sly & The Family Stone, The Temptations, Marvin Gaye and a host of other superstars. He took the same show to The Blue Note in Las Vegas for a four-week run and has recently been performing on the Groove Series shows at The Blue Note in New York City.

In the beginning of 2005, Carlton completed a three-month stint at the House of Blues & Jazz in Shanghai, China. Delivering soul & blues straight for his heart show after show, night after night. After receiving rave reviews in Shanghai, Carlton J. Smith was asked to bring his brand of Real School Funk & Soul to Zurich, Switzerland, London, England and then returned to The House of Blues & Jazz in Shanghai. He will return to Shanghai in 2008, and also be performing in Hong Kong and Beijing.

Carlton, along with his band, “The Mighty Magnificents” is touring worldwide. Carlton J. Smith is fast becoming the “International Soul Brother # New”.

A true showman, he performed at some of the world’s top venues. His talent is so widely acclaimed that he was chosen from a casting call of 500 to portray the “Godfather of Soul” James Brown on the silver screen in Barry Levinson’s film “Liberty Heights.” Carlton co-starred opposite Joe Mantegna, Bebe Neuwirth and Adrian Brody. Carlton expanded his horizons into theatre, playing a lead role in an upcoming Broadway musical entitled “Largo” written by the award winning David Henry Hwang (“M. Butterfly” and “Aida”). He plays opposite Cyndi Lauper, Fisher Stephens and Garth Hudson (The Band). Carlton also appears on the TV Soap Opera “As The World Turns.”

Carlton has a few CDs: “Carlton J. Smith Live at B. B. Kings”, “Waiting” and has just completed his new recording “Diagram Of A Relationship” (a concept CD centered around the dynamics between a man and a woman). It focuses on an entire relationship from start to finish. This new CD also contains the two songs “I’d Better” and “Love” which were released on Soulchoonz Records UK during June 2007. He will be performing in the UK to promote these two singles as well as the entire CD. Also available is his DVD which is a compilation of various shows. These are all available on the website and at his shows, as well as updates and show information.

Carlton J. Smith always gives 110% of himself on stage and in his productions. His shows are a fabulous showcase of his ability as an artist and a producer.

OUTSTANDING!
I am so enjoying this CD! Carlton really broke it down! I can relate to past & current relationships as I listen to each track. His voice is soulful & reminiscent of the old school R&B talents of the 60's. That raspy, sexy voice has me totally captivated. I am a new fan & look forward to more from this great, new talent I've discovered!
