Eddie Holman biography:-
Eddie Holman's 1970 number two smash "Hey There Lonely Girl," with its creamy falsetto vocals and lush Philly soul arrangement, is one of the most well-remembered one-shot soul hits. Actually, Holman had been recording since the early '60s, scoring some minor hits with "This Can't Be True" (1965) and "Am I a Loser (From the Start)" (1966). In 1969, he hooked up with Philadelphia producer Peter DeAngelis, best known for his work with teen idols Fabian and Frankie Avalon. His arrangements for Holman, however, rivaled Gamble-Huff's in quality, yielding some other minor R&B hits in 1969 and 1970 with "I Love You," "Don't Stop Now," and "Cathy Called," as well as an album in 1970. Most identified with his rich falsetto, Holman actually sang in a much more traditional vocal range on much of his material, some of which was written by himself or his wife, Sheila. He largely vanished from sight after 1970, though he recorded for several labels in the '70s.

Ronnie Wright biography
A couple years ago, a wind swept in from Portland, Oregon in the form of the fantastic multi-artist album, Bespeak Love. Musician and singer Ronnie Wright was a driving force behind the album, which we honored in our end of year awards. The talented Mr. Wright is now back with a brand new album a.k.a. Bespeak, a disc which combines great music and uplifting messages. And Ronnie has now issued a video of one of the most enjoyable songs from the album. Ronnie tells us about “I’ll Always Love You”: “Everyone one needs that significant other who, without a doubt, has your back. ‘I’ll Always Love You’ expresses that real connection with the true ride or die.” 
The video for the song combines concert footage with romantic footage of a couple definitely in love. (Soultracks)

Lavel Jackson biography:-
Born in Saginaw, Michigan Lavel was destined to be a musician. He made instruments out of any household object he could find. He could learn the words to songs and sing them as well as any professional recording artist. After he graduated High School, he was invited to sing with several bands and groups, but it the offer to join the B.A.D Band that gave the opportunity to realize what a good front-man can do for a band or group. Lavel was the lead vocalist for the band “The B.A.D. Band” during the 80’s and early 90’s. Although The B.A.D. Band never achieved national or international success, they did have 2 successful single releases (Stay Awhile" (1986) and "All I Want is You" (1988) which lead to the band being the opening act for many major recording artist during that era.
