Biography

CA$HFLOW

In 1986, the Atlanta-based funk quartet CA$HFLOW unleashed their self-titled debut via the Atlanta Artists label, founded by Cameo leader Larry Blackmon. At a time when pop & soul music went though a new-wave synthesis thanks to the emergence of electronic keyboards & drum machines, CA$HFLOW gave funk fans solid grooves & beats thanks to group members Gaylord Parsons (drums), James Duffie (keyboards), Regis Ferguson (keyboards) and Kary Hubbert – whose fiery gospel-tinged lead vocals graced their work. While CA$HFLOW’S had hits with “Party Freak” and “Mine All Mine” (the latter a Top 20 smash in the UK) and cut a second album, music business politics stood in the way of potential future success – a shame indeed, especially since the band had what it took to create more hit records.

The CA$HFLOW story begins in 1980, when Kary Hubbert moved from his hometown of Macon GA to study at Morris Brown College in Atlanta. Kary – “Gaylord heard me singing around campus and asked if I was interested in forming a band. I had been singing in church back home since I was a child and even fronted a Jackson 5-type group in my early teens. So yes, I wanted to sing in a band while attending college. We formed the South Side Coalition with James Duffie, Edsel Robinson (keyboards), Jack Campbell (guitar), Stanley Hackett (sax) and Kenneth Brown (co-lead singer). We sang covers of the popular tunes during that time but after a few gigs, Gaylord – who was the band’s leader – felt we should come up with original material. Group members started writing songs and over time we had some pretty solid tunes.”
