In his career, that spans more than 20 years, apart from Bobby Caldwell Lington has collaborated with many other top artists like Michael Bolton, Barry Manilow, Taylor Dayne, Kenny Lattimore, Randy Crawford and many others. Michael has also performed for the Danish royal family numerous times. When he’s not recording or performing, he manages his own cigar company and ‘Lington Wines’, his own boutique line of fine wines out of California. His latest album, ‘Alone Together’, was created in the middle of the corona pandemic. Slowed down by the virus in live performances, Michael started virtual shows and invited fellow artist to play with him. But as technology wasn’t allowing for ‘live’ duets they did it literally ‘alone together’ from separate locations as a pre-record.
