Today's Featured Biography
Yarbrough met the Wilson brothers while on tour in the band of Leon Russell. He returned to Dallas, and started a band (Grand Theft), of which he and Peoples were the lead singers and keyboardists. In 1977, the Wilson brothers (who had just joined Total Experience Records as the Gap Band) went down to Dallas to perform a concert, and saw Yarbrough and Peoples, who were performing at a club in Dallas.
Lonnie Simmons invited the couple to Los Angeles and in 1979, they signed a recording contract and released their first album, The Two Of Us. It contained "Don't Stop the Music", which topped the US Billboard R&B chart in early 1981, knocking their label-mate, the Gap Band's song "Burn Rubber on Me (Why You Wanna Hurt Me)" out of the top spot. It went on to chart higher on the Billboard Hot 100 than any of the other songs released on the label. The album went gold, peaking at #16 in the Billboard Hot 200 album chart. The UK release of "Don't Stop the Music" reached #7 in the UK Singles Chart.
The duo continued its R&B success throughout the 1980s, with four more Top 10 R&B hits. "Heartbeats" (R&B #10 in 1983), "Don't Waste Your Time" (Pop #48, R&B #1 in 1984; #60 UK), "Guilty" (R&B #2 in 1986; #53 UK), and "I Wouldn't Lie" (R&B #6 in 1986; #61 UK) all brought the band success. The label, however, had just signed a host of new acts in 1985, only one of which managed any chart success. As Total Experience began to hemorrhage money, Simmons sold it to RCA Records. The Gap Band left in 1988 and Yarbrough and peoples followed suit.
After leaving Total Experience, Yarbrough and Peoples [who married in 1987) returned to Dallas and started their own music production company, Yarbrough & Peoples Productions. They continue to write, produce and perform concerts, and mentor gifted newcomers to the music industry.
They both appeared in the stage musical, Blind Lemon Blues, at the York Theatre, New York in 2009, where Cavin Yarbrough portrayed Lead Belly.
