Biography

Driza Bone’s most popular track, as an artist, was the song “Real Love”, which reached #16 on the UK Singles Chart in June 1991[2] At the time of the single, Drizabone were mainstays April and Garcia, plus vocalist Sophie Jones.[1] Jones had performed the original demo versions of the song, but was not really interested in a musical career, and Dee Heron (b. Jamaica, West Indies) gave up her secretary’s job to take over her role.[1] The follow-up hit was “Catch the Fire” (UK #54). [2] They filled their time by performing production/remix duties for Lindy Layton (“Without You (One and One)”), Alison Limerick, Lisa Stansfield (“Change”), Kylie Minogue, and the aforementioned Shanice.[1]

They eventually met the Atlanta, Georgia based singer Kymberley Peer (b. 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]

    Sept 25 King Georges Hall and another track added to the set. The three girls seemed to really enjoy the performance. I'd love an extended version of Real Love to finish.

    Tower Ballroom t'other night, the set was great if short, Real Love to finish, superb. Sh'niece sounded great on her debut gig, great seeing the girls hit the dance floor. See you on the 25th.
