In Michael B. Sutton's universe, music, romance and sensuality are inseparably engaged in a m..nage a trois that both soothes and arouses. On the singer/songwriter's impeccably titled Hopeless Romantic - the behind-the-scenes veteran's long overdue debut album - Sutton weaves a bewitching spell, making it utterly impossible for you to press Pause or Stop until his skillfully sequenced audio passion play has come to its natural conclusion. This is the sign of a musical master - a gentle genius who has overcome crippling personal hardship to slow cook a feast for the loving and the lustful that will sate their appetites for many a bliss-filled night to come. In the past, Mr. Sutton has penned hits for Smokey Robinson ["There Will Come a Day (I'm Gonna Happen To You)"], Cheryl Lynn ("Shake It Up Tonight") and a disco smash for The Originals ("Down To Love Town"). But during his seven years at Motown as a writer/producer, he earned his reputation as the go-to guy for quality album cuts that often became "fan favorites" - the tracks that make albums enjoyable from start to finish. This distinguished resume includes a young Michael Jackson ("Cinderella Stay Awhile"), Jermaine Jackson ("Stay With Me"), Thelma Houston ("Today Will Soon Be Yesterday," from her Gold-selling album Any Way You Like It), Switch ("It's So Real," from their self-titled platinum debut), former Temptations lead singer Dennis Edwards ("When The Lights Come Down On Love") and ‘The Ice Man’ himself, Jerry Butler ("I Don't Want Nobody To Know"). Most recently, Texas rapper Scarface with special guests Jay-Z & Beanie Sigel sampled The Originals' "Sunrise" (yet another song that Michael co-penned) for the Source Award-winning hip hop hit, "Guess Who's Back.”
