Born May 4, 1938 in Greenville, Mississippi, Tyrone Davis is considered the ”king of romantic Chicago soul”, he moved to Chicago in 1959, where he found work as a valet for bluesman Freddie King. Eventually, Davis began singing in clubs on the city’s west and south sides, and by 1965 he had signed to the Four Brothers label., three years later, Davis moved to producer Carl Davis’ Dakar Records and earned his first hit, “Can I Change My Mind”, when a local DJ played the B-side of his Dakar debut. The song went to number one on the R&B charts, and hit the pop top five. In the seventies, he scored another R&B chart-topper with “Turn Back The Hands of Time” and “Turning Point” before switching to Columbia Records and discofying his soul. It was his smooth bedroom ballads like “In The Mood” and “It’s So Good To Be Home With You” however, that burned up the charts. He joined Future Records with founder Leo Graham, his long time songwriter and Producer in 1987 and went on to record successfully on various labels until his death. Tyrone Davis was and still is one of the most imitated soul singers of the modern era.
