ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Biography

"RANDEVYN." Does this name sound familiar? Not yet. This vocal heavyweight and self-proclaimed "soul singer" - as the intro to the much anticipated debut release SolTrain proclaims - brings a new flare to urban music. While he comes from a long line of singers and musicians, he's determined to be the first success story of his family. He credits a plethora of vocal trail blazers such as Stevie Wonder, Peter Cetera, Donnie Hathaway, Sting and Kim Burrell for influencing his style.

This southern-fried choirboy made his world premiere in Newport News, Virginia. Randevyn was already making a name for himself in local churches by the time he was 13. While in high school - where he led and directed the inspirational choir - he was introduced to the late Rev. James Moore. Moore was so impressed with the potential he saw in young Randevyn that he took him under his wings and nurtured his musical gift. As a result of this relationship, he became a lead tenor for Stellar Award-winning Joe Pace and the Colorado Mass Choir.

However, Randevyn's musical soul soon became restless and he answered the call of urban music mecca, Atlanta, Georgia. In just two short years, his list of credits reads like a "Who's Who in Music." In addition to sharing the stage with such greats as India.Aire, Floetry, and Bilal, he's also done background work for Ludacris, and producers Jazze Pha, Rodney Jerkins, and LaShon Daniels. While Randevyn's career seemed to be on the fast track, The School of Life still had many lessons to teach him. After a series of setbacks, he was forced to take a 9-to-5 with the state of Georgia. His daily train commute served as the inspiration for SolTrain, his debut album.

"SolTrain represents a time in my life where I was getting to know myself and my environment. The long train rides gave me time to create and bring my music to life. I met lots of people and experienced many emotions in the subway that inspired me to write."

Randevyn teamed with Sincere Johnson - founder and president of Sin.J Entertainment, LLC - Clarence "Telee" Hill (of Tyler Perry's meet the Browns), Meko Thomas, PJ Morton and Tedd Wynn of Ted & Sheri fame to make SolTrain, a well-rounded album with bangin' soul beats, brilliant harmonies, and engaging lyrics."LaughNKry" takes us for a ride on the emotional roller coaster of a love relationship, while the enchanting "SupaNatural," has colorful melodies that remind us that love is still alive. SolTrain is a wonderful mix of old and new school R&B, soul, gospel and blues that gives voice to the urban experience. Let's join Randevyn on the journey.

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NOW!!!! Let the Music Play... You are a true vocalist!!!!


So proud to know him!!
Ran's the man!!! (Yeah...I know that was corny!!) No, he really is a great guy, and it definitely shows through his music. I love the way a lot of the music comes from an atypical perspective, which is a blatent reflection of his true personality. I tend to favor the final third of the album, with TruLuv being my ultimate favorite!! I have bought a LOT of indie CDs from friends, and I can truly say that this one is one of the few that was definitely worth the investment! This project is not a mere showcase for a pretty voice, but it's also a master class in songwriting!! Like I always tell him, I KNOW he'll do well.

Time of change is finally here in 2005
Thank you for giving us the listeners a treat of orginial soul music we have been starving for. I personally grew tired of the music that shamed us as people. But on this album, I must say I became a proud parent without birthing rights. My prayer is that so many will follow, God bless this artist and his future to come. If this ad helps, I hope millions will buy. Keep singing, toast to the upcoming hitting 10 grammy awards soulful artist Randevyn.

Bangin'
This album is bangin for lack of a better word. He has a feel of bilal and a touch of john legend, but still he has a spin of his own. Something that makes you want to listen to it again and again.He's most definately a soul singer. -Simphiwe,South Africa

Finally...some REAL talent!
LOVE this CD - It's amazing...one of my favorites and I've barely had it two weeks! Randevyn has serious talent and originality - can't wait to get the opportunity to see him live! Keep it coming!

CD Baby


He has been called, "maybe the best Stevie Wonder followup ever, whether at CD Baby or not". Mixing up R&B soul, hip hop and colors of jazz and gospel harmony, Randevyn has a knack for blending up smooth urban tracks with both commercial and underground appeal. He claims his own influences as John Legend, Musiq, Peter Cetera, Donnie Hathaway, Sting, Kim Burrell and Carl Thomas but aside from the familiar qualities of his music, there is a definite touch all his own. In addition to sharing the stage with such greats as Floetry and Bilal, he's also done background work for Ludacris, and producers Jazze Pha, Rodney Jerkins, and LaShon Daniels. If you haven't heard of him yet, it's only a matter of time.

Finally getting his just due!
People are finally beginning to recognize REAL soul singers again... coming from a vocalist/songwriter, I can tell you that this brother is definitely on the rise. Heard one of his songs on local radio recently so the word is getting out! Keep reaching...
