The Honey Cone

Soul trio signed to Hot Wax Records by the post-Motown songwriting legends Holland-Dozier-Holland. Best known for the US No 1 single, Want Ads, sampled very effectively on The Avalanches’ 2016 album Wildflower. Lead singer Edna Wright is the sister of Darlene Love and another Honey Cone, Shelly Clark, married Verdine White of Earth, Wind & Fire. The Honey Cone broke up in 1973 but reunited for two concerts in 2014.
