Eric Roberson — the soulful effervescent crooner and Rahway’s Native Son is back with music that will not only move you, it will make you smile…big! The album, Mr. Nice Guy, which is slated for an October 11 release leaves no emotional stone unturned. All of life’s inventory is examined, from love to heartache to laughter — it’s all here! And just recently, I again had the great pleasure of watching the magic happen. Firstly, with his salute to summer with the song, aptly named “Summertime Anthem”, featuring hip hop’s Grand Marshall, Chubb Rock! (Images can be seen here!) And now with his latest single, “Picture Perfect”, featuring Foreign Exchange frontman, Phonte with the video’s leading lady being played by model/singer/actress Sepsenahki. It was, in a word, crazy! But all that hard work will most definitely pay off…be on the look out for the video soon!
Big ups to directors, Derrick “D. Black” Savage and Jay Espinal (who was also the cinematographer), gaffer Ari Schaeffer, BlueErroSoul team, Tiffany “Sweetlocs” Taylor, Anshia Tull and everyone who participated in the magic! It was an awesome time and I’m happy to have been a part of it!
