Synopsis

Product Description
Crawford was born in 1982 in Manila, the Philippines, to an American father and a Filipino mother, and moved to Texas in 1994. In 1997, he signed with the American affiliate of the London-based V2 Music. As a fan of old-school rhythm & blues, he cites influences such as soul legends Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and Al Green. Crawford's debut reflects his interests; it's a mature blend of pop and R&B, leaning heavily toward the soul/R&B side of things. "Urgently in Love" is an upbeat, exciting number featuring, in addition to Crawford's urgent vocals, singer Nona Hendryx. Crawford has a strikingly soulful voice and reaches a sweet falsetto as well. He puts these talents to use on "Come into My Life," a catchy, thrilling piece that presents a strong, penetrating melody. His singing on "Our Night" reminds one of the vocal intonations of the Artist Formerly Known as Prince. The album drags a bit on "You Got It" and "Higher than High," but overall, the release is quite effective

"well, what more can i say ! this album's got it guys ! i mean, if you're looking for a well-diversed album, then this is it! aside from the fact that, all the songs are original ( well, except for BILLY'S very heartwarming rendition/version of "NEVER MY LOVE" ); the album encompasses different arrangement that would definitely suit a certain music-lover ears' tastes...the combination of POP,ROCK,SOUL,BALLAD and LATIN makes this album a complete, unique "platter" of good, unwinding music...do u guys wanna rock and dance?, then check out his URGENTLY, PARTY for TWO, MARY LOPEZ and SUPERNATURAL... do u want to serenade someone with pure , clear words of love?, then listen to his NEVR MY LOVE, OUR NIGHT and HIGHER THAN HIGH; and let's see how THAT cutie would beg for more... SO, AM I NOT CONVINCING ENOUGH! just check this album out and grab a copy 'coz words are not enough to describe this upcoming SUPERBABE'S work... its not only the album that is worth checking...its the ARTIST as well...GO, BILLY, SHOW THEM WHAT U REALLY GOT ...!"
