In 1991 brothers Roberto Pena, Jr. and Reney (Ray) Pena along with longtime friends Larry McFarland and Martiz Ware decided to pursue their lifelong dream. From a small suburb just outside of Baltimore, MD the group 4PM (originally known as IV Real) was created. Their smooth harmonies and unique accapella style catapulted 4PM from local talent shows to pursuing a recording contract in New York City.

In 1994, after performing at a record release party, an executive from Next Plateau Records approached 4PM. A few weeks later they were in the studio recording what would be their first and most successful song to date SUKIYAKI. The group celebrated as their first single climbed the charts and peaked at number 8 on Billboard's Hot 100 in February 1995. Their debut album NOW'S THE TIME gained international acclaim earning gold status in U.S., Canada, and Japan; and platinum status in Australia. Their success led to several tours in the U.S., Canada and Asia.

4PM's second album A LIGHT IN THE DARK, released in 1997; also gained international acclaim. However, during this period, the group experienced a few setbacks when Next Plateau closed its doors and Martiz Ware left the group. These events to led a short hiatus in 1998. Roberto, Ray, and Larry regrouped, and formed their own production company and independent record label, PENA BROTHERS PRODUCTIONS.In May of 2000 4PM would once again hit the studio to record their 3rd album. This self-titled album would prove to be a different experience for Roberto, Ray and Larry. For the first time they would have total control of their project.

FOR POSITIVE MUSIC showcases the creativity and true style of 4PM. 4PM delivers a tasteful blend of pop/R&B/hip-hop and Latin flavor. From the heart-wrenching BREAKIN MY HEART, to the uplifting message of WHAT WE ARE SAYING, 4PM always keeps it positive. FOR POSITIVE MUSIC is an album for anyone who appreciates smooth harmony a sound that is sure to stand the test of time.
