In 1966, The Stylistics formed in Philadelphia, PA from two groups, The Percussions and The Monarchs. When members from each group were drafted, the remaining members joined forces to become The Stylistics. The original group lineup was Russell Thompkins Jr., Herb Murrell, Airrion Love, James Smith, and James Dunn.
Their first song, You're a Big Girl Now, hit Number One in Philadelphia, and it wasn’t long before other cities followed suit. After being picked up by Avco Records, hit producer Thom Bell produced their first album, The Stylistics, which brought us hit song Stop, Look, Listen To Your Heart, You Are Everything and Betcha By Golly Wow. The album's success was phenomenal, and continued with the release of their second album, Round Two.
Herbert Murrell and Airrion Love are the two original members still singing with The Stylistics. Friends since school, Airrion and Herb have kept the music alive, and they're still touring the world. Former lead singer, Russell Thompkins Jr, left the group in 2000. In 2011, Jason Sharp, former lead singer of Heatwave, joined The Stylistics. In 2018, Barrington “Bo” Henderson, formerly of The Dramatics, Lakeside, and The Temptations, joined The Stylistics as their new lead singer. The Stylistics current lineup consists of singers Airrion Love, Herb Murrell, Jason Sharp, and Barrington "Bo" Henderson.
