Steve Arrington is an American singer-songwriter who began his artistic career with the group "The Murphy’s", it was 1975. Short-lived adventure as he soon joined the group "Slave". Group he left in 1982.
During the Slavic adventure, he released his first solo title "Summertime lovin'" in 1980, a single which will go completely unnoticed. Following this failure, and after his departure from Slave, he decided to form his own group from 1982, group he calls "Steve Arrington's Hall of Fame". Ephemeral group with which he will experience some success between 1982 and 1984, notably with titles like "Way out" and other "Nobody can be you".
It will be necessary for him to wait for the year 1985 to finally know the consecration in solo with the album "Dancin 'in the key of life", flagship album of his discography and from which will be extracted mainly the singles "Dancin' in the key of life" but also, and above all, the enormous" Feel so real". A single that will ignite all Dancefloor on the planet and which will undoubtedly remain as one of the biggest dance hits of the decade.
A planetary success that will unfortunately be short-lived because everything that will come out subsequently will never experience the same level of success.
To discover or rediscover.

1980 ... an encouraging start, to say the least, which benefited from a solid foundation. But there is still work to be done, that's clear ...
1982 ... it evolves slowly but surely. Unfortunately, at this stage, the summit of the Charts remains pure and simple utopia ...
1983 ... the sound is trendy, certainly, but the melodic side, it is not on the level and this in a blatant way. He will really have to work on this aspect to catch up with the competition ...
1983 ... in the same vein. A 1983 year without much stature and which confines the artist to a purely figurative role ...
1984 ... the level has gone up a notch, it's obvious. At this rate, the following year may have a nice surprise in store for us ...
1985 ... and the nice surprise, here it is ! The singer sings here quite simply one of the biggest dance hits of the decade and offers himself a place of choice in the musical Pantheon of the 80s. MAS-TER-FUL !
1985 ... a sequel that holds up and sees the artist record his second notorious success. Certainly smaller than the previous one, but great success all the same. It's already that !
1985 ... a year 1985 bloated in terms of titles, moreover to the quality more than certain. It took years for him to explode, but now that it's done, all that's left is to unroll !
1985 ... a fourth title which will remain as the 'little' hit of the year. Anyway, an exceptional year from all points of view !
1986 ... the rest will prove to be a little more complicated to manage than expected. The artist will never find again the level of success reached in 1985 and this despite an obvious good will ...
1987 ... a half-hearted career continuation that sees the artist gradually disappear from the radar. Mass has been said...
1990 ... he will even attempt the transition to the 90s but this final attempt at rebirth will unfortunately not give any concrete results in the end ...
