Tyrone Davis was a leading American blues and soul singer with a distinctive style, recording a long list of hit records over a period of more than twenty years.

He had three no. 1 hits on the Billboard R&B chart: “Can I Change My Mind,” “Turn Back The Hands Of Time” and “Turning Point.”

Davis released about 25 singles during his seven years with Dakar, most of them big R&B sellers produced by Willie Henderson. He finally returned to the top spot with “Turning Point” in 1975.

Soon afterwards, Davis switched to the major Columbia record label and recorded seven albums over the next five years with producer Leo Graham and arranger James Mack who had collaborated with him for “Turning Point”.

Major hits with Columbia included “Give It Up,” “This I Swear” and “In The Mood.”

Dubbed the “King of Romantic Chicago Soul” by MTV, Davis’ perceived vulnerability and class endeared him to female soul fans through the 70’s.
