Alone Together

The music of Roberta Flack

Davell Crawford


Davell Crawford, the Piano Prince of New Orleans, brings the sophisticated and classy style of Roberta Flack to life on piano with a program of music made famous by the iconic singer.

Davell Crawford's musical journey was profoundly shaped by his godmother, the celebrated singer Roberta Flack, whose influence resonates deeply in his artistry


“The stlye, grace and class of my Godmother, as a human being, has always been displayed in her timeless music. Roberta Flack is the epitome of sophistication and perfection at its finest, and I am humbled to carry on her legacy, sharing her iconic music through this recording with the world.

Just as I am honored she, my Godmother, heard every note on this album before anyone and her approval of my renditions, marked by her warm smile, gentle humming and joyful tears, means the world to me. With her blessing, I share these renditions, hoping they'll bring you the same joy I experienced recording them and the same she experienced first hearing. May this offering of the music of Ms. Roberta Flack resonate with you as deeply as her music has resonated with me throughout my life.”

— Davell Crawford



“I don’t know that I’ve ever been brought to tears by a piano piece. Davell Crawford has changed that.”

He emerged as a teenage piano terror and began to unfold his incredible talent before the world. He has toured the world performing to sold out audiences and has been a committed advocate for the arts. While touring and recording he’s also taught in schools, given masters classes workshops about artistry, the importance of American Roots music – traditional jazz, gospel, funk and R&B.
