Groove Theory

Groove Theory is an American R&B duo, best known for their 1995 hits “Tell Me”, “Keep Tryin’” and “Baby Luv”, from their self-titled debut album. The original version of the group was made up of female singer Amel Larrieux and male song-writer, actor, and producer Bryce Wilson. Larrieux left the group for a solo career in 1999 and was replaced by Mekada Davis. The new line-up also signified a dramatic change in style for the group which took a more contemporary R&B approach for their second album, The Answer. Despite moderate success of the first single “4 Sure” and a remix featuring Mya and Jagged Edge, The Answer went unreleased and the group stopped recording. Since, Wilson has appeared in the movie ‘Beauty Shop’ starring Queen Latifah, and he and Davis continue to write together for other artists like Beyoncé and Amerie. Bryce got his start in the oldschool hiphop group Mantronix going by the name Bryce Luv.

The group formed in New York in 1993, when Amel Larrieux met Bryce Wilson while she was working at Rondor Music as a receptionist. Larrieux had been working at the music publishing company since the age of 18. A publisher at the company had signed Wilson as a producer, and knew he was interested in forming a group. He approached Larrieux, who he knew was a singer-songwriter, with one of Wilson's production tracks, saying "look, you wanna try writing a song? You know I can give you one of the tracks, and you can do it, and if you don’t mind, you can demo it.”[citation needed] Wilson hoped to use the group as a chance to utilize his production talents, while Larrieux wanted a chance to shine in R&B. Wilson also found it useful for Larrieux to both write, sing, and arrange each song instead of shopping around for different singers and songwriters.
