Hi all! Thanks for visiting!
A redefined, new alternative funk era has arisen out of an established band
formerly known as The Family. One Family album equaled a passionate fan
base hungry for album two. The long wait is over, Family fans meet fDeluxe.
The Family was a Prince produced Warner Bros release that received critical
acclaim, included a top 10 hit, ‘Screams Of Passion’ and introduced ‘Nothing
Compares 2 U’ which was famously covered by Sinead O’Connor. Unfortunately,
the band succumbed to a variety of pressures and, while they remained in
friendly touch with each other, the members forged careers down separate
paths. That is until mutual friend Sheila E. convinced them to reunite for a huge
charity concert in L.A.’s Forum. A year later Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson of The
Roots persuaded them to appear at his hot ticket post Grammy party. Call it fate
but the gigs all but dictated that the group pool their resources and focus on
what has become that highly anticipated second album. St. Paul Peterson and
Susannah Melvoin put on their writing hats, called Eric Leeds and Jellybean
Johnson into the studio, wrestled with the legal requirement of a new name and
the thrilling result is fDeluxe!
