From Brooklyn, New York, USA, Intro are led by songwriter/lead vocalist Kenny Greene, with Jeff Sanders and Buddy Wike his fellow singers. They made their initial impact in 1993, establishing themselves on the US R&B vocal scene with a self-titled debut album that reached number 11 on the Billboard R&B album chart. By the advent of a follow-up collection in 1995, the group had slowed the pace of their delivery to present a more reflective, melodic song suite dominated by ballads. Yet there was still an absence of the explicit lyrics favoured by other R&B practitioners. Typical of this approach was ‘There Is A Way’, which addressed child abuse and wife battering. The album reunited Greene with his former production partner Dave Hall, with other contributions from David Cintron and Rodney Jerkins.
