    HOWARD HEWETT - EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW-WED, MAR 18, 2015 - 5:00 pm PST

    in Music

    Howard Hewett (born October 1, 1955, Akron, Ohio, United States) is an American R&B and gospel singer, and former lead vocalist of the R&B group Shalamar.


    Raised in Akron, Ohio, Hewett moved to Los Angeles in 1976, where he met John and Alonzo Daniels, owners of an historical club in the LA Crenshaw district, called Maverick's Flat. It was at Maverick's that Hewett first met Jeffrey Daniel and Jody Watley (eventually Shalamar). Hewett and the Daniels brothers formed a show group called "Beverly Hills" and through Daniels bookings toured throughout Europe, the UK, Scandinavia and Asia for all of 1978 till the middle of 1979.


    After returning from overseas, Hewett started recording for Jeffrey Bowen, a Motown producer (The Temptations, Commodores, Bonnie Pointer) who was working on a solo project on guitarist Eddie Hazel (Parliament-Funkadelic). Hewett never completed the project because towards the end of 1979, he got a call from Jeffrey Daniel, who was on the road with Shalamar in the middle of a promotional tour. They had suddenly found themselves in need of a lead singer and Daniel made Hewett an offer that he accepted. Within three days Hewett flew to New Jersey, where he met up with Watley and Daniel, rehearsed the lip synch and choreography to the current Shalamar single "Take That To The Bank", and found himself in front of a TV camera on a local dance show in Paterson, New Jersey. They completed the promotional tour and returned to Los Angeles and immediately started recording the Big Fun LP with their producer, Leon Sylvers. The trio went on to record songs such as "Second Time Around", "Make That Move", "A Night to Remember", "Dancing in the Sheets" and the ballad "This Is for the Lover in You". Hewett was the group's lead singer from 1979 until 1985.

This thrilling experience ranged from Concert Halls, State Fairgrounds, to Stadiums filled with screaming fans that every aspiring musician dreams of… This connection with the group prompted extensive collaborations with Leon Sylvers for several Albums he was producing, at that time was asked to play keyboards for Solar Recording group (Dynasty), and this is where songwriting and producing records began.

    Legendary producer-singer/songwriter Leon Sylvers III

    in Entertainment

    Leon Sylvers first rose to prominence in the early 1960s as a member of The Little Angles harmony vocal group featuring his siblings (Olympia, Charmaine, and James). During this time they appeared on variety shows such as Make Room For Daddy and You Bet Your Life. Following their parents divorce, Leon and his older siblings went to live with various relatives before reuniting with their mother Shirley and their four younger siblings in Los Angeles, California. In 1970, Leon entered the family act into a local talent contest which now included younger brothers Edmund and Ricky. They won that talent contest hands down due to their versatility, choreographed and harmonies. The impresario Mike Curb signed them to MGM Records in 1971 and marketed them as The Sylvers.
    Leon wrote his first hit single ("Wish That I Could Talk to You") which was on their debut album called The Sylvers. He also penned his brother Foster Sylvers' Top 10 US R&B chart single "Misdemeanor" which was a hit during summer of 1973. For the next several albums, Leon would continue writing songs on his family's albums which included 1977's Top 10 US R&B chart single "High School Dance".
    In 1978 Leon would produced The Sylvers most critically acclaimed album, Forever Yours.
