Artist Update: Theresa

Reunion Radio was founded two years ago on the idea of bringing together and exposing different generations of R&B lovers to music they may not otherwise hear... as well as highlighting new music by artist from 'back in the day'. It's the second part of our mission that this new feature focuses on. Starting this month Reunion Radio brings you  "Artist Update". Each month we'll pick an artist that you may not have heard from in a while... feature some of their classic songs and videos, catch up with some of their newer projects, and throw in anything else we think may inform and entertain you.

This month's Artist Update is 80s duo Theresa. The group consisted of lead singer Theresa King & keyboard player Victor Porter. Operating out of Sacramento, California Theresa & Victor were part of Jay King's Club Nouveau camp that was burning up charts and dance floors in 1986-87. Guided by soon to be super producers Foster and McElroy (En Vogue, Tony, Toni, Tone) Theresa dropped their album "Broken Puzzle" in 1987. The first single "Last Time" shot up the charts and the group looked to be on it's way to stardom. But as is all too often the case, Theresa became yet another reminder of why it's called the Music BUSINESS.

By way of Rumor Radio we are posting a recent interview with lead singer Theresa King. In this humorous and highly entertaining interview with DJ Marcus T... of Timex Social Club(Rumors)fame... Theresa speaks on her past as well as what she's got cookin' for the future.

So check out the interview above and then be on the look out for a special treat on an upcoming Reunion Radio Podcast involving some new music from Theresa.
