A noted singer, songwriter, actor, and producer, Angie Stone is a neo-soul pioneer, and Walter is a noted veteran producer and songwriter who has worked with Beyonce’, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, Brandy, and many others.
Angie started her career as a teenager when her Hip Hop group The Sequence signed with the legendary Sugar Hill Records. Her next endeavor was with the sophisticated R&B trio Vertical Hold who had a top 40 hit single “Seems You’re Much Too Busy.” But Angie really made her mark as a solo artist with the release of the albums Black Diamond in 1999 and Mahogany Soul in 2001. These albums spearheaded the New-Soul movement and have become standards of the R&B genre. Throughout her career, Angie has collaborated with a who’s who of producers, songwriters, and performers including Calvin Richardson, Betty Wright, D’Angelo, Jaheim, and many, many others.
“Angie stone is the real deal! A true soul and R&B vocalist and songwriter of legendary status. We at SRG are so excited to welcome her and her esteemed manager/producer, Walter Millsap, to our ever-growing family. I can feel the magic. It’s about to go down again,” said Claude Villani (founder and CEO of the SRG/ILS group).
“After receiving several calls from good friends Aaron “Freedom” Lyles and Robert Ross urging me to call the head of SRG, Mr. Claude Villani. I did exactly that, and I am certainly glad I did! After speaking with him, I knew instantly that SRG was the home for Conjunction Entertainment and Angie. We are pleased to be partnered with the SRG family,” said Walter W. Millsap III (CEO Conjunction Entertainment/Manager).
“I have been in the music business for more than four decades, and having a fantastic team brings a certain peace. When the head of my label and manager, Walter Millsap, suggested that we do this partnership with Claude and SRG, I did not blink an eye. Claude’s passion and enthusiasm are electric and contagious,” said Angie Stone.
