The Voices The Group
Gillie Leroy Jones
Singer, songwriter, and professional joker!
Leroy was born in 1951 in New York State, then moved to England in 1956. Thanks to his musical background, Leroy was always destined for musical stardom. His father was an accomplished guitarist, renowned for playing in bands throughout the U.S.A. Leroy has now settled in Britain, and with over 35 years in the music business, his soulful, velvet-smooth vocal talents still stay true to his mentor – the late, great Johnny Moore.
Leroy has worked with some of the very best the music industry has to offer. His accolades include a full week of providing vocal support to Dionne Warwick at the London Palladium; he also toured with the legendary Ben E King for three whole months, visiting countries like Germany, Holland and many other parts of Europe. Following the popularity of this tour, Leroy (along with Ben E King, Billy Lewis and the late Tony Jackson) enjoyed huge success with the Drifters in a number of countries across the globe.
Today Leroy lives by a single ethos: “This music is my life I only want to share it with you”.
Born in the UK, Stevie is the youngest member of the group and is an accomplished singer/songwriter in his own right.
Following in the footsteps of his mentors, Gillie Leroy Jones and the late Lewis J Jackson, it didn’t take Stevie long to prove that his fresh, youthful approach truly added something special to the group.
Stevie’s falsetto vocal range is well suited to the music of The Drifters and Motown; you only have to hear his renditions of Just My Imagination and the Sweetest Feeling to witness Stevie’s sheer vocal talent at its absolute best.
Stevie has also had success as a solo vocalist, and his smooth, sultry tones can often be heard in voice overs and other studio projects.
