Multi-platinum duo to produce R&B compilation album
NEW YORK, NY (August 16, 2012) — Carvin “Ransum” Haggins and Ivan “Orthodox” Barias, the multi-platinum talented masterminds and driving force of Philly-based Karma Productions, will partner with the “R&B Spotlight” brand to produce a compilation album.
Carvin and Ivan, as the duo is often referred in the music industry, have produced and written mega hits for Musiq Soulchild, S.W.V, Keyshia Cole, The Roots, Jill Scott, Lil’ Wayne, Ledisi and Faith Evans. Having recently hosted the August edition of “R&B Spotlight,” an exclusive “live” monthly showcase featuring upcoming and national recording artists, the duo was inspired to create a new project.
Karma Productions and the R&B Spotlight marketing team are searching for singers, songwriters and producers of the R&B genre. If you would like to be considered for this project, please send a “live” performance reel and music credentials to: TalentRnBSpotlight@gmail.com. The album is scheduled for a Spring 2013 release.
ABOUT R&B SPOTLIGHT
R&B Spotlight is hosted monthly at the legendary BB King’s Blues & Grill located in the heart of Times Square.

The event is streamed live for the world to see, thus expanding the audience beyond the walls of the venue.
