All Army soul R&B singer signs U.S. radio promotion deal
Singer-songwriter Chris Legacy (aka SSG Chris Fairley for his performances as an All-Army entertainer) is on the rise. Blending soul and R&B in a way that touches the heart and backed by charismatic performances his combination of talent, positive energy and drive have carried him all the way to a #4 spot in UK indie charts and now the rising star is poised to explode on US radio in a big way.
The Mississippi born Legacy made the announcement he has signed a radio promotion deal with a California based company led by Joe Mason (Motown, WCERecords/Sony and Never Stop Ent) and Ken Wilson (Sony, J Records, Columbia Records, Warner Brothers, Arista and MCA Records) on March 31st after performing on stage in Florence at The Florence Center. Legacy performed with powerhouse artists Frankie Beverly & Maze, Lenny Williams and The Terrance Young Experience to a crowd that couldn’t get enough of him. The company is also currently promoting music to radio stations for Charlie Wilson, Johnny Gill, India Arie, Fantasia, and #40 Billboard Mediabase Charts holder Diamonique Jackson.
“This just lets me know that I’m doing something right when a well-respected radio promotion director approaches you,” commented Legacy. “I am looking forward to seeing my music reach more people and touch more lives.”
Joe Mason, from the promotion team, was equally excited, “ I’m going to work hard for Chris and soon we’ll see the results.”
Mason saw that something special in Legacy, going back to 2018, when he saw him perform at a Blues concert in Greensboro, NC when Mason was traveling with classic R&B vocalist Lenny Williams, best-known for his hit song “I Love You”. “Even Lenny had great things to say about Chris’s personality, character and his vocal ability. He is truly a seasoned entertainer and recording artist,” remarked Mason about the experience that would get the ball rolling towards his current deal.
Unusual for an American-artist Legacy’s music has already taken off overseas on the U.K. indie charts with his new single “Hello” debuting at number #17 and making it all the way up to #4 on their highly-contested charts.
“It’s one of those songs I put on repeat. It’s simply a hit,” said London-based Indie radio format, Breaking Artist Program Manager, Taxman with quite a bit of passion.
Veterans, retirees and active duty personnel are among his most loyal fans knowing Legacy is an All-Army Entertainer Army Vocalist by day performing in his military capacity as SSG Chris Fairley, the name he was born and joined the service with.
Victory Pernell of Victory Promotions LLC, praised the rising star for his ability to draw in both a civilian and military fanbase. “Chris is a great person and a very talented singer and performer. Whenever I have an R&B show I call Chris cause I know he’s going to do a great job and he draws a big crowd of military supporters so its always a win-win for us both.”
