House duo Soulsearcher remain best known for their international club smash "Can't Get Enough." The project teamed vocalist Thea Austin and producer Marc Pomeroy, both longtime veterans of the dance culture. Pittsburgh-born Austin began her career as a staff writer with the industry trade publication The R&B Report before pursuing fame as a singer -- in 1991, she joined the German production team of Michael Münzing and Luca Anzilotti in Snap!, co-writing and contributing lead vocals to their global club blockbuster "Rhythm Is a Dancer." Florida-born Pomeroy first earned widespread notice in 1991 during a stint as producer with Nile Rodgers' Ear Candy imprint -- he later remixed tracks for Busta Rhymes, Loleatta Holloway, and Tony! Toni! Toné! before founding his own Soulfuric Recordings label. Pomeroy and Austin teamed as Soulsearcher in 1999, drawing inspiration for "Can't Get Enough" via samples from the 1979 Gary's Gang hit "Let's Lovedance Tonight" -- the resulting single was a Top Ten pop smash in the U.K., and that summer the duo performed at Prince Charles' Prince's Trust Party in the Park all-star concert in London. Soulsearcher's follow-up, "Do It to Me Again," peaked at number 13 in Britain in 2000, but Pomeroy and Austin soon went their separate ways -- while the latter scored another monster club hit in 2001 with Pusaka's "You're the Worst Thing for Me," the former founded Jazz-N-Groove Productions with Brian Tappert.
