After being the featured tenor and falsetto lead in the R&B group Heaven & Earth, Dwight Dukes ventured out and started Cashmere, a dance- and club-oriented group with R&B roots. The group included keyboardist McKinley Horton, drummer Daryl Burgee, and fellow Heaven & Earth vocalist Keith Steward. Primarily focusing on the vocal talents of Dukes, Cashmere had four singles that surfaced on the R&B charts between 1983 and 1985. During the group's brief presence in the music industry, even though they recorded only three albums, there was personnel change on each album, with Dukes remaining at the forefront.
