Biography

As individuals, the members of D-FOR have played or recorded with a veritable who's who of the music industry. This list of artists includes Gerald Veasley, Jill Scott, Yolanda Adams, BeBe Winans, Mary J. Blige, Kirk Franklin, Vivian Green, Hezehiah Walker,Michael Brecker, Pieces of a Dream, Randy Brecker, The Gabriel Hardeman Delegation, Miles Jaye and a host of others. Like most musicians working in the same locale, their paths often crossed on concert stages or recording studios and in the informal but fierce jam sessions that are legendary in the Philadelphia area. No matter the genre of music, whether it was r&b or jazz, the musical and personal chemistry between them could not be denied. In 1995 this group of seasoned musicians got together to jam and toss around some musical ideas. Within a few months they realized that they had struck upon something special and began to develop a sound that was uniquely their own. "Intersection" is an appropriate title for D-FOR's third CD as various elements of jazz, r&b, funk, and gospel cross over each other to create this band's distinctive sound.
