Hal Linton biography

Hal Linton is the latest artist to be discovered by SRP, and 2009 will be the year that the rest of the world will discover his unique brand of modern soul music. Hal was born into a musical family in Barbados (home of label-mates Rihanna and Shontelle); both of his parents are classically trained musicians, and growing up he was exposed to a wide array of musical traditions, from opera to Al Green, Bob Marley to Marvin Gaye. The young academic scholar began to pursue his musical dreams several years ago, and in short order had electrified the local music scene with his potent blend of great songs, exciting vocals, and dynamic stage presence. He captured Song of the Year honors at the 2007 Barbados Music Awards for his single “Cardiac Arrest”, and shortly thereafter moved to New York to pursue his dreams further, joining forces with SRP. Linton, Rogers, and Sturken set about taking Hal’s music to the next level, and within a few short months had crafted the core of his album, including such standouts as “Lock My Heart Down “ and “Abandoned Heart”. It wasn’t long afterwards that Sylvia Rhone made them an offer they couldn’t refuse, and SRP teamed up with her Universal/Motown label to introduce Hal to the world. Hal Linton may have come a long way in a short time, but the cool, calm, and collected 24-year –old knows that his musical journey has just begun.
