Timeless in a way that few other acts today are, The Spinners are one of the most iconic and enduring groups in R&B history. With a towering legacy spanning over six decades, The Spinners have never lost their universal appeal. In 2021, they returned with their ﬁrst all-new original album, the aptly-titled, Round the Block and Back Again.
The group created and came to deﬁne the smooth sound of Philadelphia Soul, channeling the highs and lows of romance and heartbreak into a catalog of classic hits, beloved across generations. Throughout the years the Spinners continue to top the Pop, R&B and now Adult Contemporary Charts, with smash singles like, I’ll Be Around, Could It Be I’m Falling In Love, Then Came You, The Rubberband Man' and many more– earning Six Grammy nominations, 18 Platinum and Gold Albums, a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and selling millions of records worldwide in the process. Did we mention that they are one of the 2023 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductees?
Though The Spinners popularized, and came to embody, the lush sound of Philly Soul in the 1970s, they got their start in Detroit at Motown in 1954. The Spinners signed with Atlantic Records in 1972, teaming up with producer Thom Bell in Philadelphia where the group blossomed under his masterful productions.
The Spinners had another classic hit single, Working My Way Back To You, topping the Pop and R&B charts, earning the group its 12th gold record. The The Love Trippin album’s release included Cupid, one of the fastest-selling records in The Spinners’ career. The follow-up album, Labor of Love, featured such stand-out tunes as Yesterday Once More, and Long Live Soul Music.
Four decades later The Spinners have not skipped a single beat as Round the Block and Back Again makes wonderfully clear. Melding intricate harmonies with breathtaking vocal acrobatics, the album, released August 27 2021, shows The Spinners at their soulful, multi-octave best.
A fan favorite drawing large crowds to sold out performances both at home and abroad, The Spinners have left an indelible impact, not only on music history– but on the hearts of millions of fans throughout the world.
