Phyllis Hyman

Phyllis Hyman began her career as a silky voiced, jazz-influenced singer and gradually moved into slick, heavily produced urban contemporary ballads and light dance numbers. Hyman won a scholarship to music school and then began her professional career with the group New Direction in 1971. When they disbanded after a national tour, Hyman joined the Miami ensemble All the People. She also worked there with another local group, the Hondo Beat, and appeared in the film Lenny. That was followed by a two-year stint heading Phyllis Hyman & the PH Factor, before relocating to New York. Hyman performed background vocals for Jon Lucien and built her reputation performing in New York clubs. Norman Connors made her his featured vocalist in the mid-'70s, and she was highlighted on a cover of the Stylistics' "Betcha by Golly Wow," which reached the Top 30 of the R&B chart. Hyman also sang with Pharaoh Sanders and the Fatback Band while cutting two singles as a lead artist. Buddah released Phyllis Hyman in 1977, but she really began making an impression when she was signed by Arista the next year. The songs "Somewhere in My Lifetime" and "You Know How to Love Me" both made the R&B Top 20. Hyman got her lone Top Ten hit in 1981 with "Can't We Fall in Love Again," but her albums did consistently well throughout the '80s. The production teams of Mtume/Reggie Lucas and Narada Michael Walden/Thom Bell gave her material that showcased her skill with sophisticated ballads. Hyman had more success when she left Arista for Philadelphia International in 1986, with the single "Living All Alone" putting her back in the R&B Top 20. She also sang on fusion and light jazz dates by Joe Sample, Ronnie Foster, and Grover Washington, Jr., a more conventional jazz session for McCoy Tyner, and a pop date with the Four Tops. Tragically, Hyman took her own life on June 30, 1995; Forever with You was issued posthumously. ~ Ron Wynn, Rovi

It always seems to be the most deeply soulful who leave us too early-- those who TRULY touch us with their beauty and talent are those who are the most troubled and in need of the most help. RIP Ms. Hyman, Mr. Hathaway, Ms. Winehouse and countless others.

Just Amazing...

5/24/2014 PHYLLIS HYMAN YOU ARE VERY MISSED LIVING ALL A LONG I LIKE THAT SONG
5/22/14, Life Wm. Billy Strayhorn, who wrote LUSH LIFE, at the age of 17 or 18, The Answer By Is You was also written by a young man who was in his teens, too. Looking back, I am still in awe that these two songwriters could have written MEANINGFUL songs, at such a young age! d v brooks, NYC
The best voice of all time.. love it..
Love her voice
True Classic.
One of the greatest of all times! Will never forget that amazing voice!!
Miss you like crazy Ms. Hyman. RIP
Love hee so much going through it at the moment so I will be listening to her song's more this shall pass RIP

There will never be another Phyllis Hyman. The unmatched talent, smoky vocals and deep chords that matched her troubled soul.
Yes way to soon ♥
Seems the ones with the best vocals are tortured souls, the only consolation we have is their lovely music that will last a lifetime. Rip Ms Hyman
Phyllis Hyman sorry for the quick typing and misspelling for name

This song is haunting to me. She died with such loneliness. A beautiful woman who seemed to not love herself. So sad. Depression is an awful illness. I love her music, especially this song.
Her music was her release of pain. It was real. If u can relate to her. It was a way to express and get paid. Not only that. She made herself heard.
This and has always been a classic
Being from Philly it was always a very pleasing time seeing her or hearing her on the radio. Love and miss you dearly

This song..... Wow, the story of my life
There has never been another voice like hers since she became well known. Mental health issues were always a hush hush thing in the African American community, and people just wouldn't accept she had issues. Despite her private issues, she remains one of my favorite female artist. R.I.P. Phylis Hyman
