Missing Link signs Songwriting Duo: R.Kelly drummer Calvin Rodgers and Grammy, Stellar and Dove nominated Songwriter/Producer Phillip Feaster
October 10, 2012
Dynamic Duo, Calvin Rodgers and Phillip Feaster have signed worldwide administration deals with Missing Link Music.
Calvin Rodgers was raised on the South Side of Chicago, taking an early liking to the drums. At 15, when most were still learning their craft, Calvin recorded a live CD/Video recording with the Grammy nominated choir Ricky Dillard & New G. Shortly thereafter, Calvin caught the attention of Ramsey Lewis, who invited Calvin to record with his award-winning group Urban Knights. Simultaneously, Calvin began touring with the gospel superstar, John P. Kee. Calvin was also becoming a regular first call studio session drummer in Chicago, for everything from smooth jazz to radio and television jingles. It was while working as a studio player that Calvin landed the coveted gig as the lead drummer for R&B Icon, R.Kelly. Since that time Calvin has evolved into a sought after Producer, Composer and Writer.
Phillip Feaster is a Grammy, Stellar and Dove nominated musician, producer and writer. Born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, Phillip grew up playing piano in church. As a student at Curie Metro High School, he evolved into a sought after music director and was invited to participate in the prestigious Chicago All City High School All Star Band. Within the decade, while still in his youth, Phillip has made an indelible mark on the progression of Gospel Music. Passionate, skillful and intuitive are words used to describe this Keyboardist, Music Director, Organist, Writer, Producer, Composer, and Engineer.
