This record was produced with lyrics by the Steals Brothers and vocals by William “Smoke” Howard. William Howard, known as “SMOKE” is a soulful messenger of “Life & Love”. This one was penned and demoed some 30 years ago while “Smoke” resides in the Philadelphia area and continues to be active in keeping the sounds of the area alive. A native of Bristol – Tennessee, “Smoke” formed the group “The Fabulous Nu-Tones” while he was in college. After college, his singing career took off when he led and managed several East Coast bands including South Jersey’s “Black Smoke”. As lead singer of The Ebonys (beginning in the mid-1990’s to current) he brought new life to the sound of Philadelphia with his rugged and powerful voice, slammin’ the 90s with a dose of great hits that made The Ebonys famous.
