In 1966, The Stylistics was formed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by combining local high school rival singing groups, “The Percussions” and “The Monarchs”.
After working locally a few years in Pennsylvania’s tri-state vicinity, the group was approached by Bill Perry, a local record company executive. Bill approached the group and asked if they would be interested in making a studio recording, and with no hesitation, they jumped at his offer. Finally, the group’s ultimate dream had come true.
It is now 1970, and “You’re a Big Girl Now“, penned by the group’s then guitarist Robert “Doc” Douglas and Road Manager, Marty Bryant has taken place at “Virtue”, a local recording studio in Philly. The Stylistics were finally on the road to their much-deserved legendary success. The tune was picked-up in the tri-state area becoming a #1 hit in Philly, and several other cities up and down the east coast. After the success of the single “You’re A Big Girl Now“, they set their sights on the group’s first album launch. Philly’s veteran hit producer Tom Bell was approached and hired to produce the group’s first album simply entitled The Stylistics. From that album came the birth of the group’s classic showstoppers, “Stop, Look, Listen to your Heart“, “You Are Everything” and “Betcha By Golly Wow“. To say the least, the success of their first album was phenomenal for that time, including an unheard total of six hit singles.
Now with the group’s talent and success engraved in stone, the ball rolled quickly with the release of their second studio album entitled Round Two, and now referred to as “the Philly sound with sweet love songs.” Fast forward several decades, albums, cd releases, and group member changes, Herbert Murrell and second lead Airrion Love, the remaining original members of The Stylistics continue to travel the country and worldwide sharing their group’s music legacy.
The group’s many honors include the Philly Walk of Fame brass plaque embedded in cement on the Avenue of The Arts street in historical downtown Philadelphia. They also appear in an exhibit at the award-winning National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C.
