ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
First A LITTLE ABOUT Chi-Sound history, Chi-Sound Records was originally established back in the early 70's by the legendary producer Carl Davis. Carl H. Davis legendary producer and record label owner has recently reactivated his Chi-Sound Record label in January 2007. Mr. Davis is former mainstay on the National and Chicago scene and was instumental in the careers of some of Chicago's most renowed artist which includes: Gene Chandler (aka The Duke of Earl), Walter Jackson, Major Lance, The Opals (Chicago”s own Dream Girls), Otis, Leaville, Jackie Wilson (aka Mr. Dynamite), Chi-lites, Lost Generation, Barbara Acklin, Tyrone Davis, Kenny Edmonds (aka Baby Face) and The Mighty Dells just to name a few.



Mr. Davis has been responsible for a number of artists obtaining gold records through his unequaled quality in his production, hearing ability and his expertise relating to an artist on how a story should be told. Mr. Davis said a song is just a story and your audience must be able to believe the story before they buy your song. Artists of today has used the production work of Mr. Davis to make # 1 selling records across the world such as Mc Hammer (Have You Seen Her), Paul Davis (Oh Girl), Boy George (To Good To Be Forgotten), Beyonce (Crazy in Love), Jay Z(December 7), Common (Never Had It So Good), Fantasia (Baby Mama), Paul Walls, (Oh Girl), Sunshine Anderson (I Wanna Pay You Back), Tara (Crazy in Love), Jaheim (Sly Slick & The Wicked) and Richkiddz (Have You Seen Her, Peace and On My Way) and C-Dot one of Chi-Sound Records Recording Artists (Hott On A Thing). We made C.Dot's CD Case the new digipaks with a great design. enjoy the music and please buy some good music.



In his new venture Mr. Davis has located some of the most exciting new Artist from Chicago and other parts of the country.

C.Dots Bio-
For Such a time as this" is how to describe the mind set that has put C.Dot on his rising road to success.
Born in Lockport, NY to Karen Elias, C.Dot spent most of his summers in NYC on Jefferson Ave where he got his first taste of the rap life at age 12. Ever since then he's been running full force. " The Games an award and my hunger is serious" is what he has been known to say.

At age 16 he started to get a glimpse of his ability when he was in the 64 Mc Free Style Battle in which he placed 3rd out of 64 contenders between the ages of 16-25. Also around this time he was being looked at by a LA based company but a thorough look at the contract he realized there had to be more. So forced to be a man and grow up at a young age he took to the streets to feed his family. C.Dot spent 7 years of his adolescence in and out of the incarceration in which he had time to reflect on his life style and bring it to life through his music. What's special about C.Dot is that he has a strong spiritual foundation. He attributes his soulful roots to his father Calvin Elias who befriended those of the likes of Shirley Caesar. His father was a singer and choir director who instilled in him a passion for music at a young age. Although C.Dot lived a life in the streets, his deep gospel roots combined with his wisdom and streets smarts allows him to create real music that touches the soul. " Being in the streets forced me to become a real dude, face real issues, and make real sacrifices. So the only thing I know how to do is make real music, anything else just wouldn't be real that's why so many people hated and doubted me along the way because a lot of these people were out here talking about what they were doing and I was out here living it. My pops' always told me " don't speak about it be about it" That's why I am in the position that I am now. I kept my mouth shut and let my actions do the talking."

C.Dot first made his mark by making mix tapes, dropping rhymes over hot-hip hop instrumentals, showing off his verbal lyricism and street tales over whatever style of beat was thrown at him. A lyrical boot camp is how he describes it. He says: "You have all these different styles of beats and you gotta come with one flow after the other making sure you have a different delivery and at the same time give the people something they can feel. Someone once said " C.Dot has the key to the city because he is the only one I know that can make people come to their house 16 deep with guns, bats, and knives ready to fight over mere words."

In 1999 C.Dot opened up for Memphis Bleak of Roca Fella Records at club Pharaoh in Niagara Falls, NY. Since then he's played in various clubs throughout Buffalo, Niagara Falls and his hometown Lockport, NY. As well as performing at the annual Black Experience festival in Niagara Falls and a talent show in Tuscaloosa AL. C.Dot has since won a radio hip hop contest on Wild 101, and has two songs that have played on 93.7 WBLK " All I need and Champaign Wishes, performed with T-Rock and Quiet Boy of Music Mafia. He has also opened up for the Magic Man show on 93.7 WBLK. He most recently won the 8 o'clock Beat off on 1.fm jamz an internet radio station, where his song Hustlin beat out 50 cent, Ciara, Nelly, Gip, & Ali just to name a few. Making his song number 1 on their charts. C.Dot has been on the go lately in such cities as Cleveland OH, Kalamazoo MI, Chicago IL, and Buffalo NY.

C.Dot signed a 6 year contract with Chi-Sound Records on 12/15/06. The company is run by the Legendary Carl Davis who has worked with the Chi-Lites, Jackie Wilson and Curtis Mayfield. C.Dots' album " The Calm Before the Storm is set to be released sometime in 2007.

All this success has given C.Dot a vision. He wants to help the youth of all races to show them that dreams do come true, and that no matter what path life has taken you down you can turn your life around and accomplish your dreams. Part of his mission is to give the world positive music with a real message. "The Calm Before the Storm" is not an album you'll want to pass up.

C.DOT IS HERE TO MAKE HISTORY!!
Chi-Sound Records would like to thank everyone for their support of Chi-Sound records around the world.
