Leroy Burgess

Anyone who knows 70s or 80s R&B knows the name Leroy Burgess. He may not have been on every album cover of the genre but, usually, he had something to do with creating them.

Mr. Burgess is a singer, songwriter, keyboard player and producer. Most known as a lead vocalist of Black Ivory, he released a number of R&B hits with the group, including "Don't Turn Around", "You And I", "I'll Find A Way “,"Spinning Around", "What Goes Around " and "Will We Ever Come Together".

Outside of his work with Black Ivory, Burgess has had numerous club hits as a solo artist and then with the band Aleem. Burgess wrote and produced a substantial number of hits for other artists as well, including "Big Time" for Rick James, and wrote and performed on the Bob Blank production of Fonda Rae's big hit "Over Like A Fat Rat."

In 2007, he released "Throwback: Harlem 79-83", followed in 2010 by "Throwback: Vol.II: Sugar Hill 82-86", the first albums under his own name. Most recently he collaborated with the other members of Black Ivory on their long awaited reunion album "Continuum."
