Ronnie Laws signed his first recording contract with Blue Note records, resulting in the impressive debut album Pressure Sensitive (1975), produced by family friend, Wayne Henderson, (a founding member of the contemporary jazz pioneers The Crusaders), which rapidly emerged to become the longest selling album, at that time, in the 42 year history of the label. His first hit, "Always There", was one of the most popular, sax-driven, cross-over hits of the 70's Jazz-Funk Fusion era. Laws is a proven natural at combining the exploratory heart of Jazz with the broader reaching strains of Soul and Pop music.

Debra Laws The sister of flutist Hubert Laws, saxophonist Ronnie Laws, and vocalist Eloise Laws, performed and collaborated with a veritable who's-who of jazz, funk, and R&B segments of the recording industry. After she was featured on recordings by her brothers, as well as Richard Roundtree's The Man from Shaft and Aquarian Dream's Fantasy, she signed to Elektra, where she released the 1981 album Very Special. Produced by Hubert and Ronnie, it reached number 13 on Billboard's R&B chart, led by three charting singles, including the title song; a staple of the quiet storm radio format, the hit has been sampled for songs recorded by Big Daddy Kane, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Lopez, and K. Michelle, among others. Laws has performed in world-class concert halls and at some internationally renowned jazz festivals. Equally impressive are her numerous credits, including sessions for recordings by Jeffrey Osborne, Betty Wright, and Stevie Wonder.

Eloise Laws Eloise Laws who is also known as “El” is an inspiring artist, Broadway actress, author, songwriter, and a singer who has managed to mesmerize the music world of today with her resonating voice and vibrant personality. Eloise Laws holds more than 30 years of experience in the entertainment industry and has been widely acclaimed for her harmonious Jazz, soul, and Rhythm & Blues music.

Michael Ross Michael Ross, a native of Chicago, IL. Michael performed at several of Chicago's local jazz clubs. He soon later became the staff guitarist for the first New York Broadway National Touring Company's production of "The Wiz," that toured across the United States. Michael's sound is true to the heart - filled with emotions, style, technique. His creative abilities allow him to tell a story - going beyond normal boundaries and giving his listeners only the best!
