Vassal Benford Steps Out with ‘Melody Man’
*“I had to do something to display I’m an artist way too,” explained 57-time platinum-offering producer, songwriter, singer and keyboardist Vassal Benford (Nancy Wilson, Ne-yo, Aerosmith) about his debut Jazz album “My Favored Moments” (February 2023) and it is leading solitary “Melody Man” (Benford Jazz).
Vassal has had a exceptional profession in the tunes business starting off at the age of 16 when he wrote a #1 hit for Ramsey Lewis (“Michelle”). At 18 he experienced a 2nd strike with a Nancy Wilson song developed by Stanley Clark.
“I left for Los Angeles performing with Stevie Marvel and Michael Henderson, hadn’t even graduated,” Benford informed me when requested about his beginnings. “I satisfied this guy…arranger/producer for Ramsey Lewis’ ‘Sun Goddess’. He read my song…I rented a vehicle, a person drove me to Chicago, and while there recording it that’s when I very first saw Earth, Wind and Fire and was blown absent.”
Vassal went on to collaborate with The Jacksons, Aerosmith, U2, NAS, Christina Milian, Ne-yo, Queen Latifah, Mariah Carey, Debra Cox, Patti LaBelle, Religion Evans and Rick Ross – to title a couple of. Apart from the multi-platinum report product sales, Benford is credited for $150 million in earnings at the box place of work (Soon after, New Jack Town).

“In Gospel new music, I wrote for Yolanda Adams, Tramaine Hawkins,” he explained. “…that was just before Kirk Franklin and Mary Mary!”
“A ton is likely on correct now. I deal with BB King’s estate…have two hit motion pictures out…producing the BB King movie- a bio-pic,” Vassal included. “…My company creates a ton of exhibits.” www.VassalBenford.com
