Bobby Caldwell’s live performances are always electrifying! Drawing from his vast repertoire of rousing R&B, intimate smooth jazz stylings, and big band songs, Bobby has the ability to entertain at any venue, for fans of all ages.
As a singer, he has a successful career with numerous solo releases, which have earned accolades far and wide. His songwriting skills have earned hits not only for himself, but also for well-known artists like Chicago, Boz Scaggs, Peter Cetera and Amy Grant, Neil Diamond and Al Jarreau.
Bobby’s timeless classic, “What You Won’t Do For Love” has been recorded and sampled by more than 100 artists, including rendition by Boys II Men. A sample of Bobby’s song “Open Your Eyes” appeared in the Grammy nominated platinum rap hit “The Light” by Common. All combined, Bobby’s songs and samples have contributed to over 40 million sales, while artists as diverse as Tupac Shakur, Michael Bolton, Roberta Flack, Go West, Vanessa Williams and Notorious B.I.G. have all paid tribute to the blue-eyed singer in the slouch hat. Bobby’s classic song was sung by Elliot Yamin during the final 3 round of American Idol 2006.
Major motion picture and television credits have brought Bobby’s music to even broader audiences. His original composition, “The Girl I Dream About” was included in Hillary Duff’s film, The Perfect Man, and in Charlie Matthau’s film, Her Minor Thing and in Simone, starring Al Pacino. Previously, his rendition of “Beyond The Sea” was selected by actor/director Joe Mantegna as the opening theme for his directorial debut Lakeboat. The song fit so well with the movie that Mantegna commissioned Bobby to compose an original piece, “(Oh Boy!) You’ve Got It Made,” as the closing theme. “Beyond The Sea,” along with “All The Way” and “The Girl I Dream About” are also featured in the motion picture My First Mister starring Albert Brooks and directed by Christine Lahti. “Luck Be A Lady” is the featured track in the movie The Cooler, starring William H. Macy, Alec Baldwin and Paul Sorvino.
