The Whispers is an R&B/dance vocal group formed in 1964 in Los Angeles, California. The original members included the twin brothers Scotty and Wallace Scott, along with Gordy Harmon, Marcus Hutson and Nicholas Caldwell. In 1973, Harmon was replaced by former Friends of Distinction member Leaveil Degree. The group scored many hits on the R&B and Billboard Hot 100 charts throughout the 1970s and 1980s, and they hit #1 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart in 1980 with “And the Beat Goes On/Can You Do the Boogie/Out the Box”.

The group’s sound was marked by Scotty Scott’s fluid, melodic voice which featured on virtually all of their hits. Scotty’s sound was so distinctive and likeable that, in his heyday, he was as recognizable as such noted R&B lead singers as Ronald Isley of The Isley Brothers.

In 1987, they enjoyed a career resurgence when “Rock Steady” hit #1 on the R&B charts, and it became their first Top 10 success on the Hot 100, reaching #7. The Whispers also founded the Black Tie record label.

In the 1990s, The Whispers joined the Capitol Records family releasing more favorites. Expanding their creative horizons, brothers Walter and Scotty cut “My Brothers Keeper”, a critically-acclaimed duet album in 1993, scoring another R&B hit with a cover of the Intruders’ “I Wanna Know Your Name.” The 1995 release “Toast to the Ladies” featured a collection of love songs dedicated to women all over the world. In 1997, the group moved to Interscope Records where they featured the works of Baby face once again with their album, “Songbook, Vol. 1: The Songs of Babyface”. Both albums charted on Billboard’s top 100 albums.
