Artist Biography by

This R&B vocal group, despite a 20 year plus history, remain condemned to obscurity by dint of their lack of recording opportunities. Dickie Harmon (lead and tenor), Anthony Giusto (tenor), Jordan Montanaro (baritone) and Clinton ‘Jaki’ Davis (bass) formed the group as teenagers in Hackensack, New Jersey, USA. They soon found a regular source of employment at school hops and talent shows, originally operating under the title Bachelors. Although Harmon and Davis recorded with both the Connotations and Notations, the quartet itself never managed to find time to enter the studio (Harmon would also work with Strut on their solitary album for Brunswick Records). They changed name to Windsong in 1971 when they recruited local female singer Jackie Bland (rendering the Bachelors a suddenly inappropriate name). This formation appeared at a United in Group Harmony Association show shortly thereafter, and this finally led to a recording date in 1981 when Ronnie Italiano brought the group to Clifton Records. Their only release, an EP featuring ‘Young Wings Can Fly’, ‘Lucky Old Sun’, ‘Imagination’ and ‘Canadian Sunset’, emerged following the sessions. Windsong broke up shortly thereafter, with Harmon reappearing in the Del-Vikings and the Autumns.
