And Where do you "Where To"?: Calvin Richardson

I recently had the opportunity to interview Calvin Richardson for Nu-Soul Mag. At the end of my chat with this soulful crooner, you know I had to ask:

When you lived in Los Angeles for several years back in the early 2000s, where did you "Where To"?

“To be honest,” Calvin admitted. “When I was in Los Angeles, when I lived out there, I didn’t hang out that much. I was working on my album 2:35pm. I stayed there for two years, basically, and the whole time I was studio to studio. If I hung out with somebody – like me and Tyrese were good friends – I’d go out to Temecula to his house and hang out over there. But I didn’t really go out to clubs or hang out that much.”

I'm just saying: If I were friends with Tyrese, I wouldn't be going anywhere either. I'd be at his house 24/7, all day and all night...you think I'm joking.

I've been a fan of Mr. Richardson since his album 2:35pm, so it was a pleasure to have a one-on-one with him and learn more about his newest project, his new label record and his take on soul music. To read my interview with Mr. Richardson, click here!
