This is Bobby Caldwell, the man was a bit of a mystery as people were convinced he was black, as his first couple of releases had no photos, if you had to categorize his music the best definition is 'blue eyed soul' a term given to white musicians with soul leanings or voices, better known exponents would be the Righteous Brothers, The Box Tops, Dusty Springfield in the 1960's. Hall and Oates, Michael McDonald, Boz Scaggs, George Michael and the Average White Band in the 1970s and 80s. There are some excellent exponents around at the moment such as Mayer Hawthorne, Allen Stone and Eli 'Paperboy Reed'. But here is a couple of Bobby Caldwell tracks for you.
