The Chi-Lites – Marshall Thompson on the 50th Anniversary of “A Lonely Man”

Founded as a high school vocal group in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood in 1959, The Chi-Lites eventually emerged as one of the most influential soul acts of their generation. The group has enjoyed a rich 60+ year career, having become known for its oft-imitated smooth vocal arrangements and lush orchestral production. With a classic lineup consisting of singers Marshall Thompson, Robert “Squirrel” Lester, Creadel “Red” Jones, and lead vocalist/songwriter/arranger/producer Eugene Record, The Chi-Lites scored eleven Top 10 R&B hits between 1969 and 1974, each release more integral to the evolution of Chicago soul than its predecessor, cementing the group’s place in modern musical history.

With a clear touch of soft rock, pop, and country influences, Sylvia Fedrick creates pure music with a deep eclectic sound. She finds her inspiration from artists and bands such as her dad Larry V. Fedrick and Chicago groups such as Kajsa, and Rare Form. She forms a counterweight to contemporary dance music. Her music tells a story, touches deep emotions, and is honest and fresh with a beautiful sound.
