Daryl Hall & John Oates
Starting out as two devoted disciples of earlier soul greats, Daryl Hall & John Oates are soul survivors in their own right. They have become musical influences to some of today’s popular artists, so much so in fact that Spin Magazine’s dubbed them "the New Velvet Underground.” As one of the most sampled artists today, their impact can be heard everywhere from boy band harmonies, to neo-soul to rap-rock fusion. Daryl Hall & John Oates have sold more albums than any other duo in music history. Their 1973 album, Abandoned Luncheonette, yielded the Top 10 single, “She’s Gone," and shortly thereafter they were catapulted into international superstardom.
With the fortieth anniversary of their first album, Whole Oats, 2012 finds Daryl Hall and John Oates very much at the height of their powers making their own kind of soul, with a new generation of musicians recognizing not only their historic track record of success, but also their continuing influence and achievements.
