The formation of The Look in 1977 was considered a major event in Detroit Rock circles. Five of the ablest, brightest musicans from the city's top bands came to together to create what has become a national attraction. Led by longtime lead vocalist and songwriter Dave Edwards, whose vocals 'People Magazine' once compared to "the raspy hungry sound of Rod Stewart-pre-Hollywood,". "The Look" create an exciting and polished live stage show. Whether headlining or opening for such acts as John Mellencamp,Cheap Trick, Joe Cocker, Ray Charles, The Kinks, Paul Rodgers and many many others, or playing in major markets such as Toronto, New York, L.A., Boston, Chicago, San Francisco and more, they've established themselves with a well deserved reputation for igniting an audience. In the early 80's "The Look" released a series of albums on labels such as Fantasy and A&M. The first album "We're Gonna Rock" was produced by Johnny Sandlin, known for his work with The Allman Brothers, Delbert McClinton, The Outlaws, and The Rockets. Thanks to early MTV exposure and top 5 airplay in dozens of major cities, the song "We're Gonna Rock (How About You?) became a radio classic. The second Look album "Look Again" was produced by Mark Stebbeds whose credits include,Grand Funk and John Mellencamp. "Look Again" surpassed the success of their first release, with national radio and video play all backed by a series of live dates. The first single "You Can't Sit Down" was rated on Dick Clark's American Bandstand show with a '94' with Mr. Clark commenting "this record has an infectious beat!" "The Look" signed with Fantasy Records (Creedence Clearwater's Label) and went to Berkeley Ca. to record their 3rd Lp "Everybody's Acting" that album featured the same driving spirit and blistering energy that made the first two Lp's such standouts, but there was also a striking sophistication to their sound which the group attributed to producer Phil Kaffel (Taxxi, Cheap Trick, Eddie Money) and also keyboardist Tim Gorman (The Who). The single" Memories" was the standout track. In 1997 The Look recorded "Look Who's Rockin" on their own record label. They've also released a retrospective CD called " A Collection For The Record". In 2007 "Look Alive" was released and in 2009 "The London Sessions". Through various line-ups and personnel changes over the years "The Look" continue to create exciting and vibrant "Rock and Roll Soul." Lead vocalist Dave Edwards has released 3 solo CDs...his latest is called "Lone Survivor and was released in 2009.
