Hailing from Los Angeles, The Whispers have a typical R&B style of doing music and are also a dance group. They have been offering some of the best hits since the 1960s for which they have won many awards including The Rhythm and Blues Foundation’s prestigious pioneer award in 2008. In 2003 they were also inducted in to the Vocal Group Hall of Fame.
Since its inception in 1964 the band has come a long way with many members coming and going. Originally it included Wallace Scotty, Walter Scott, Gordy Harmon, Marcus Hutson and Nicholas Caldwell.

They initially started off as “The Eden Trio” and later were renamed as The Whispers by the Dore Records for which they recorded quite a few hit numbers. Their music had a romantic charm that coupled with their R&B style, made them a remarkably popular name in the 1970s. The melodic symphonies and especially the lyrics that have a sweet romantic touch to them have been extremely popular with women and have earned them a strong female fan base as well.
Their genius lies in the fact that they have moved along with the tide of time and their style of music does not get antiquated at any point. In fact, right through the 1990s even they developed a fan base among the youth and these youth were precisely those kids who had actually been “raised on the tunes of The Whispers” as their parents put it. Perhaps this is the brilliance that lies behind four decades of quality music and an ever growing fan base. Moreover their continuing growth is possibly due to the fact that they have developed themselves over the years and have made good use of their star power.
