Steve Arrington

Real Name:
Steven Ralph Arrington
Profile:
Born, 5 March 1956 (age 65 years), Dayton, Ohio, United States. Steve Arrington got his start playing with the Young Mystics. After they disbanded, he moved from his native Ohio to San Francisco. The group Slave emerged from a union of two former Ohio bands, the Young Mystics and Black Satin Soul. Arrington joined them in 1978, starting as a background singer but becoming lead vocalist on such hits as "Just a Touch of Love," "Watching You," and "Wait for Me." Arrington left Slave in 1983, forming a new band, Steve Arrington's Hall of Fame. He recorded for both Kongflather and Atlantic, enjoying his greatest success with the 1985 LP Dancin' in the Key of Life. It included a Top Ten R&B hit in the title track and Top 20 single with "Feel So Real." Arrington experienced a religious conversion in 1986, and began using his shows as forums for these beliefs in 1986 and 1987. He subsequently left pop music in 1991 to pursue his spirituality. In 2009, he reemerged on the music scene, with the self released album, "Pure Thang", followed by the 2011, Stones Throw single release "Goin Hard". Steve is currently touring and writing and recording new music.
