The Delfonics are the quintessential sweet-soul group formed in the mid-'60s, lead by vocalist/songwriter William Hart. Between 1968 and 1974, they had twenty charting singles and won a Grammy for their hit "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)." Out of those 20 hits, Hart wrote or co-wrote eighteen of those, with thirteen written with collaborator Thom Bell: "La-La Means I Love You," "He Don't Really Love You," and "Ready or Not Here I Come (Can't Hide From Love)."
In 2013 Hart collaborated with L.A.'s hottest songwriter/producer, Adrian Younge on what was envisioned as a modern-day Delfonics album. Skillfully writing his vocals around Younge's drum-heavy productions, Hart's poignant songwriting has remained a constant. "It means everything to me in my career," says Hart of the album. "This is my top moment. Everything to me at this point in my life is showing me that I can do it over and over again, if given the chance. I respect Adrian for seeking me out..."
"That guy is a genius," Younge says of Hart. "I learned a lot from him. It was just one of the best feelings of my life as far as music is concerned. The first time I heard his voice on one of my songs, I was just totally mesmerized. Because I know his voice so well, so to hear him on something that I created was just crazy." "This album that I've done with the great Adrian Younge is the beginning of the rest of my life in music," Hart adds. "I just want to carry the legacy of the Delfonics."
