Known as a songwriter and Soul/R&B Artist his career spanned 50 years, with his most influential songs being “Harry Hippie” “Across 110th St” and the Re-known “If You Think You’re Lonely Now”

His music has been featured in movies (Quentin Tarintino’s Jackie Brown), and he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009; in 2011 he was nominated for a Grammy in the Category of Best Short Form Music Video w/ Mos Def and Gorrilaz!

His edgy yet smooth style, gave a new ideal to what Soul would mean to the masses and also gave way to what we now know as Rhythm & Blues. Innovative, and Raw was his standard, he transcended genres tapping into Rock and Roll, Doo-Wop, and Country. The influence of his music is as everlasting as his profound sound and it will most definitely transcend time.
