From NBC’s “The Voice,” singer/songwriter Geoff McBride was first thrust into the national spotlight with a 1990 Arista recording contract. Soon after, he was heralded as “the next big

Since his early days at Arista, he had an invaluable opportunity to work with Aretha Franklin, Teddy Pendergrass, Whitney Houston and Ray Charles, among other musical giants. McBride has crafted a trademark style and repertoire often characterized as a cool blend of contemporary and classic rhythm & blues.
