 Artist: Osiris
LP: Since Before Our Time
Song: "Consistency"
[ listen ]

Born and raised in Washington, DC in the 1950s, Osiris Marsh's career got started in high school when he performed with the doo-wop group The Stridells (who obliterated rival doo-woppers The Love Tones in the East High talent show, by the way). In 1977 his group Osiris rose from the ashes of The Family, another group he'd helped form just the year before. Osiris released their first LP in 1978, and their "Consistency" single peaked at #77 on Billboard's R&B singles charts.
