Detroit, Michigan), who had formerly worked with Howard Hewitt and Freddie Jackson.[1] She was also a partly established actress, having appeared alongside Marvin Winans and Vanessa Bell Armstrong in the musical, Don't Get Got Started. She was on hand to record Drizabone's first single in three years, "Pressure", which prefaced their long awaited debut album.[1] Thus followed "Pressure" (UK #33), "Brightest Star" (UK #45), and a re-release of "Real Love" in 1995 (UK #24, their biggest hit since the original version of the track).[2] Driza Bone also had a charting album in 1994, titled Conspiracy, which debuted and peaked at #72 on the UK Albums Chart in November of that year.[2] All of their chart successes were released on the Fourth & Broadway record label.[2] In 2010, Billy April, now credited under his real name Billy Freeman, revived the project under the name The Drizabone Soul Family, releasing an album titled All the Way with a new line-up of vocalists.

You'll love the up tempo track "Come On Back" with its Motown vibe and stylish vocal, whilst the hot dance track that is "New York City Nights" with its 70's disco beat and heavy bass will whisk you off to the dance floor. Then there is a soul searcher aptly named "Sell My Soul" offering its modern retro sound with an Amy Winehouse feel and not forgetting our title track "The Recipe Of Life" which itself is a track from the heart of D R I Z A B O N E, with lyrics like "a little bit of fire, a little bit of strife, a little bit of love that's The Recipe Of Life" For more info: www.drizabonesoulfamily.com Read more on Last.fm.
