Atlantic Starr – Brilliance
Atlantic Starr – Brilliance. While never achieving “supergroup” status, Atlantic Starr was one of the most consistently successful “and underrated” soul bands of the 80s, with a basketful of memorable songs that still sound good today.
Like many groups formed in the mid-70s, Atlantic Starr was influenced by the self-contained funk bands like Earth Wind & Fire and Kool & the Gang, and the massive initial line-up, consisting of lead singer Sharon Bryant and musicians Cliff Archer, Porter Carroll, Joseph Phillips, Damon Rentie, William Sudderth and brothers Wayne, David and Jonathan Lewis, reflected the times.
Their big break came when they teamed with The Commodores producer James Anthony Carmichael for “Radiant”, a smash album that landed in the Soul top ten. The next album, released in 1982 (also produced by James Anthony Carmichael), “Brilliance” contained the hits “Circles” and “Love me Down”.
