Nolan Strong (Scottsboro, Alabama, January 22, 1934 - February 21, 1977) was an American rhythm & blues singer and songwriter. He released a few solo singles in the 1960's (Mind Over Matter (I'm Gonna Make You Mine) a.o.).
Nolan Strong moved to Detroit at a young age. He started singing soon after arriving in Detroit and formed his first Nolan Strong & the Diablos group in 1950. Nolan Strong, the lead vocalist, had a high tenor voice. Strong's smooth voice, influenced mainly by Clyde McPhatter was, in turn, a primary influence on a young Smokey Robinson.
