Artist details to be updtated shortly!
.... Donny Hathaway moved back to Chicago to share his talent with
Curtis Mayfield on his newly born Curtom label. Initially he was
given the title ‘staff writer’, but Curtis was so impressed
by the twenty one year olds genius and confidence, he would soon
give Donny the opportunity to arrange and produce material for acts.
He was able to influence artists such as The Five Stairsteps,
The Impressions, Holly
Maxwell and even performed the duet “I thank you”
with June Conquest in 1969.
