Two-time GRAMMY™ nominee Eric Roberson (“Picture Perfect,” “At the Same Time”), widely known as the King of Independent Soul and R&B, continues to break boundaries as the original pioneer of the independent movement in R&B and soul music.
The Rahway-born singer’s remarkable success as a songwriter and producer has led to collaborations with Marsha Ambrosius, Dwele, Musiq Soulchild and many other notable artists. Described by vocalist Jill Scott as “a brilliant singer with a voice like red velvet cake,” Roberson became the first independent artist to be nominated for a BET Award in 2007 and was the recipient of the “Underground Artist of the Year” BETJ Virtual Award with Rahsaan Patterson in 2008. His albums include Mister Nice Guy, The Box and the three-EP compilation Earth, Wind and Fire.
