Profile Times Two was an American male duo of vocalists/keyboardists that wrote most of their own material, consisting of Shanti Jones and Johnny Dollar, both from Point Reyes, California. The duo debuted in 1988 with their album, “X2”, which reached #137 on the Billboard 200. In the U.S., their biggest hit was “Strange But True,” which peaked at #21 on the Billboard Hot 100. That year, Debbie Gibson’s manager Douglas Breitbart signed Times Two as the opening act for her Out of the Blue Tour. Its second single, “Cecilia” (a cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s hit, featuring work by Paul Simon himself, and produced by Club Nouveau’s Jay King), was less successful, reaching #79 on the Billboard Hot 100.
