Profile Whiteface was an Atlanta-based pop-rock-funk band formed in the late 1970s. Its members were technically proficient and each was a lead vocalist, giving the band an incredible vocal harmony sound. Their music style varied wildly from funk & R&B to pop & rock, as their individual talents were so strong that they couldn’t be pigeonholed into one defined channel. Their first album that came out in 1979 failed to sell bassist Kyle Henderson left the band and replaced by Barry Dunaway and the group recorded a new album called “Change of Face” in 1981.

Their producer, Phil Benton, had worked with singer/songwriter Paul Davis and enlisted the band to back him on his 1981 hit singles “Cool Night” and “`65 Love Affair”. As for their sound there’s a mix of AOR with some poppy and southern music style, with great vocal performances and very beautiful compositions. There’s also an Andy Fraser/Alfred McCrary composition, “Keep Holdin’ On”. Worth to buy if you find it…
