Fresh, original music with strong melodic content, Calvin's unique style incorporates classical direction so often missing in much of today's instrumental music, while delivering haunting, memorable melodies with spaciousness and tranquility.
Calvin is the composer of "Whitewater Chopped Sticks" performed by Teresa Scanlan, Miss Nebraska, who won the Miss America Preliminary Talent Competition on Night Three of the Miss America 2011 pageant. Teresa then won the Miss America 2011 Pageant January 25th performing Calvin's special 90 second edited version thrilling some 8 million viewers on ABC TV with her blazing peformance. Calvin is known in many circles as he has traveled the U.S. doing concerts from coast to coast for the past 20 years. As well as live concerts, he excels in doing soundtracks for film and TV. Among these, Calvin has produced the music for Life Athletes (an organization of professional athletes promoting respect for life among teens), Promise Keepers, ATS Telecommunications, LifeMedia as well as Hallmark and McDonalds.
Recently Calvin contributed substantial music for the docudrama "Little Town of Bethlehem" to be released September 2010. Directed by Jim Hanon of "End of the Spear" Calvin and Kirk Whalum produced a powerfully moving soundtrack, some of which will be offered on Calvin's new release coming out this fall.
