Maze Background

When he was only a child, Frankie Beverly began singing gospel music at his church in his hometown of Philadelphia.In his formative teen years, he established The Blenders – an a cappella, doo-wop band inspired by bands of the era (The Moonglows, The Del Vikings and The Dells). The Blenders' tenure was short-term but it didn't take long for him to form another act, The Butlers. The Butlers turned out to be the first group he ever recorded with, which was in 1963.

The Butlers didn't fit the mold of "Philly Sound," so Beverly learned to play the keyboard and rhythm guitar and started Raw Soul along with Sam Porter, McKinley Williams and Roame Lowry. Although they were not hurting for gigs around the City of Brotherly Love, Beverly believed that California offered more promise. In 1971, he moved to the San Francisco/Oakland area. Three more members joined the Raw Soul lineup, billing it as a funk band.

The single, "Open up Your Heart," the band's debut track was released by Eldorado Records. Eventually, two other singles were released on Gregor Records, which similar to the Eldorado single, covered solving the world's problems, eliminating social injustices and ending prejudice and inequality.The tune, "Color Blind," was sprinkled with funk horns, characteristic of the '70s. It posed the question, "What color is harmony?"

Raw Soul became very well-known regionally but never quite broke through the national mainstream.Eventually, the iconic Marvin Gaye gave the group a chance when he enlisted Raw Soul to support him on a tour with their original material. Shortly after their tour with Gaye, the group inked a deal with Capitol Records. Taking Gaye's suggestion to change their name, the Raw Soul concept was scrapped and Beverly started up Maze. He kept the core members and brought in new talents aboard to complete his lineup.

Their first album, Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, yielded the hit tracks "Lady of Magic," "While I'm Alone" and "Happy Feelin's." Maze earned their first gold record off the effort and cultivated a loyal fan base as well. The albums that followed Golden Time of Day (1978), Inspiration (1979) and Joy and Pain (1980) additionally struck a chord with fans. They next cut the album, Live in New Orleans, which generated the infectious songs of "We Need Love to Live," "Running Away" and "Before I Let Go." By the time that album hit the streets, the band had cemented a reputation both in the U.S. and the United Kingdom. In 1985, Can't Stop the Love dropped, which included "Back In Stride." The single made it to No. 1 on the R&B charts - their first. Another track from the album, "Too Many Games," rocketed to the Top 5 and also ranked at No. 36 in the U.K.

In 1989, Maze shifted to Warner Bros. and put out the Silky Soul album. Back to Basics followed in 1993.

After years of trying to pierce the mainstream music scene, Beverly was unloading singles by the truckload. Beverly skimmed the best elements from Raw Soul and the Butlers and injected them into Maze. His recipe for success worked! Today, Maze continues to trek around Europe and the U.S. and annually they punctuate the Essence Music Festival.
