Calton Coffie is returning solo to the music scene with his new album "Hot Cup of Calton Coffie." His first release in three years, the album offers fans more of his familiar, rich vocals and rhythmic reggae beat.

Coffie is best known as the co-writer and lead vocalist for the 1993 Grammy Award-winning hit "Bad Boys." The perennially popular song from the album of the same name can be heard in the movies "Minority Report," "Bad Boys," and "Beverly Hills Cop III," and weekly on the internationally syndicated television series "Cops." As the lead vocalist of the musical group Inner Circle, he recorded six albums, including "Bad Boys." His well known record "Sweat, A, La, La, Long," topped charts around the world and became the most-played record ever in Germany.

Born in London, Calton came to Kingston, Jamaica, at the age of five, when his parents returned to their native country. There he learned the reggae style made popular by Bob Marley, who Coffie admired. Coffie came to the United States in 1973. He served eight years in the U.S. Army before leaving it to pursue his dream of a professional music career. During the next two decades, he recorded eight albums, earned numerous gold and platinum albums and singles, and set international chart records. Following his 1993 Grammy Award for "Bad Boys," he was again nominated for the album "Reggae Dancer" in 1994.

In 1995, following a serious illness, Coffie left Inner Circle, and recorded solo albums with Gator Records in 1998 and 2000. In August 2003, Coffie released "Hot Cup of Calton Coffie" with 18 original songs.

The support for this record has been strong and Calton and his band will be touring extensively in promotion of his latest album. Live performances and recent reviews have shown that Calton hasn’t lost that special charisma first showcased with Inner Circle.
