Legendary R&B crooner Lenny Williams has had a long and varied career that has lasted over 40 years. One of the most celebrated voices in R&B, he is now releasing a brand new single. The song, titled “Still,” shows that he still has the vocal talents that made him a household name in the 70’s.
Lenny Williams got his start in the music business by winning singing competitions near his home in Oakland, California. After cutting a couple singles as a solo artist, he linked up in 1972 with the funk band Tower of Power and became their lead vocalist. With them, he participated in three albums – Back To Oakland, Urban Renewal and the gold LP Tower Of Power – and earned a reputation as one of the top funk vocalists in the game.
In 1975, Williams left to pursue solo recording projects and signed with Motown record. In 1977 he moved to ABC Records. As a solo artist he produced a number of chart hits, including “Shoo Doo FuFu Ooh”, “Choosing You”, “You Got Me Running”, “Love Hurt Me Love Healed Me”, and “Midnight Girl.”
