About Raphael Saadiq
Saadiq carries the flag for old-school R&B (Created March 7, 2013)
Just call Raphael Saadiq a man of many talents. Since the 1980's, this singer, songwriter and producer has embraced and carried on the sounds of old-school R&B. Through his own work, not to mention collaborating with names like John Legend and The Roots, Saadiq has been a true force in the music industry for decades.
It was Saadiq's early work with the soul trio Tony! Tonii! Tone! that put this eventual Grammy Award winning singer on the map. Then came his deal with Columbia Records, which allowed him to shine as a solo act. His debut album, 2008's "The Way I See It," featured Stevie Wonder, Joss Stone and Jay-Z. It produced four R&B chart singles was nominated for three Grammy Awards, including Best R&B Album.
With his star status firmly cemented, Saadiq hit the road to perform at festivals and venues throughout the United States and Europe – including Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and more. He also nabbed the opening spot on the Dave Matthew's Band's amphitheater tour. In between, he found time to return to his studio complex in Los Angeles to record his next album.
Saadiq's talents continued to shine on 2011's "Stone Rollin'" – a project on which he wrote, produced and played everything from Mellotron to drums on most of the tracks. This is another album with a number of special guests, including Robert Randolph on steel guitar, Swedish-Japanese singer Yukimi Nagano on "Just Don't," and Larry Dunn from Earth, Wind and Fire on piano.
Always ready to rock and roll, you never know where you'll find Saadiq next. Make sure you get your tickets to see this energetic performer live!
