ADY CRAMPTON CHATS TO THE STARS

Kevin Sanlin (Montclairs / Perry & Sanlin)

April 8, 2020

Singer, songwriter and multi instrumentalist Kevin helped form The Montclairs who were a sweet vocal harmony group in St Louis.  Their debut recording brought them to the attention of the legendary Oliver Sain who took them to Jewel/Paula records where northern soul favourites Unwanted Love and the anthemic Hung Up On Your Love were born.

Music tastes were rapidly changing in the early 70s and Kevin, along with fellow band member Phil Perry found himself relocating to LA to record for Capitol records as Perry and Sanlin.

Now retired, Kevin continues to make music on a daily basis and his catalogue of unreleased music can be found here:
