Biography

There’s more than 1 band called Silk. For the japanese one that was not formed by 大森絹子(Kinuko Oomori), please refer to SiLK.

Silk is a five-man R&B group best known for their 1993 #1 single “Freak Me” from their debut album Lose Control. They had another hit single from the Lose Control album “Girl U For Me” which helped the album reach double platinum status. They later had success with hits like “Meeting In My Bedroom” and “Tonight.”

The group is made up of Tim Cameron, Jim Gates, Gary Glenn, Gary Jenkins and John Rasboro and they were found by popular music artist Keith Sweat.

They continued the popularity of the various New Jack Swing groups that emerged in the late 80’s and 90’s.

Jenkins (known to fans as Lil G) made his stage debut in 2002 as AJ in the Tyler Perry play “Madea’s Family Reunion”. In 2002, Elektra Records trimmed its artist roster and dropped Silk and Sweat from the label.

3) The ’90s R&B trio Silk was one of the many groups to arrive from that genre in the wake of classic Motown and during the heyday of their native Philadelphia scene. The group was never as famous as most of their contemporaries, but they still managed to release two albums before they disbanded in the late ’90s, 1997’s Smooth as Silk and 1997’s Silk.
Not to be confused with 90’s R’n’B Silk.

4) The japanese rock singer 大森絹子(Kinuko Oomori) best known for Bubblegum Crisis formed the band SILK in 1991. They released their first , self-titled mini-album in January 1991.

    I haven't heard the song in years, but for some reason got the hook to "Freak Me" in my head. I am going to make sure to sing it next time I'm drunk and trying to pick up some random woman.
