One of R&B music’s most consistently popular vocal groups, The Whispers, began their legendary career in 1963. Twin brothers Walter and Wallace Scott joined with several friends to form a local singing group. They perfected their tight harmonies on the street corners in the Watts section of Los Angeles and in nightclubs in the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Area.

Their vocal style harkens back to an earlier era of crooning, preferring soft pillow talk and songs that speak to heartfelt emotions. They are arguably the most celebrated R&B balladeers of their generation, known for the silky yet forceful tenors of twins Walter and Scotty.

They gained national attention with their seventies albums, “One For The Money,” “Open Up Your Love,” and “Headlights” producing two singles, “(Let’s Go) All the Way” and “(Olivia) Lost and Turned Out.”

Their first platinum album “The Whispers” (1980) highlighted “A Song For Donny” in memory of Donny Hathaway, and their biggest hit “And The Beat Goes On.” The neoclassic “Lady,” written by group member Nicholas Caldwell, is still a favorite at concerts.

The group still consists of Walter Scott, Wallace Scott, Nicholas Caldwell, and Leaveil Degree.
