America’s No. 1 independent urban/soul artist ERIC ROBERSON returns with his eighth
studio album “Mr Nice Guy”. Nominated for a Grammy Award in each of the past two years – for recordings from his prior album “Music Fan First” – the New Jersey-based performer is on top of his game. And he follows it with a 3-date UK tour in October.
The 15-song album – for release on Dome on September 5 – features a cameo from veteran rapper Chubb Rock, who performs on the lead single, the infectious, feelgood “Summertime Anthem”. Other guest vocal performances come from Phonte, of Little Brother and Foreign Exchange, who raps on one of the album’s other key tracks “Picture Perfect”, and Jean Baylor – formerly of Motown hit duo Zhane – on “How Would I Feel?”.
Producers include Rich Harrison (Jay Z, Beyonce, Usher), Bink (Jay Z) and James Poyser (Erykah Badu, Anthony Hamilton, Jill Scott, among many others).
Roberson began his successful songwriting career creating hits for fellow artists, among them Jill Scott – who describes him as “a brilliant singer with a voice like red velvet cake” – Musiq Soulchild, Dwele, Will Downing and DJ Jazzy Jeff.
