Tune in w/ TampaMystic as she interviews C.A.L

C.A.L is not just another up-and-coming artist; he carries with him a rich legacy of soul and innovation. As the son of Gerald Alston, the esteemed lead singer of the Grammy Award-winning group The Manhattans, and Edna Alston, a professional dancer and choreographer, C.A.L has been immersed in music and performance from a young age.

Hailing from New Jersey, C.A.L combines a diverse range of influences, including Doopwap, R&B, and intricate lyricism, to create a sound that is both distinctive and universally appealing. Drawing inspiration from artists such as Keith Murray, Fabolous, Jay-Z, Rakim, and Lil Wayne, he has honed his craft with meticulous attention to detail, mastering the art of structure and conceptual bars.

But C.A.L’s talent extends beyond his lyrical prowess; he is also a gifted vocalist, thanks in part to training under the guidance of his father and uncle. Influenced by R&B legends like Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Usher, and Jazmine Sullivan, C.A.L infuses his music with soulful melodies and heartfelt emotion, creating a truly unforgettable listening experience.

C.A.L’s musical journey has been marked by a series of impressive releases, including his debut EP “M.E.,” followed by the acclaimed mixtape “Freshman.” His latest project, “Rebirth and Revelations,” showcases his evolution as an artist and features the standout single “Honesty Hour,” which is garnering attention on all digital platforms.
