Newcomer Pee Wee Callins released his debut solo album, Street Soul, yesterday on Beatmart Recordings. A melting pot of old school R & B and up-to-the-minute sounds, the album combines Pee Wees silky-smooth vocals with the R&B/Hip-Hop grooves of veteran-producer Todd Collins (The Katinas and Out of Eden).
The street vibe and credibility of the project are further enhanced by the contributions of celebrated emcees Rob Hodge, Big Sonny, and Bobby Bishop. Sunshine, the first single from the CD, is currently going for adds on Gospel radio stations nationwide.
This album is HUGE! Its springtime in the music industry and Street Soul is a big fat daisy! said Richard Picart from Gospelcity.com.
Pee Wee's love for music began early in life; as a four-year-old he played drums in his grandfather's church. He later took up the keyboard, and became a minister of music by 12 years of age. In 1994 he recorded an album, called The Family That Prays Together Stays Together, with sixty of his family members . His musical success has enabled him to share the stage with such acclaimed artists as Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond, Shirley Caesar and more.
