About Atlantic Starr
Although they had a slew of hit songs during their early days as keyboard-hauling patrons of the dancefloor, Atlantic Starr hit pay dirt when they stopped trying to keep folks dancin' and turned their attention to romancin'. Ballads became their most popular output, giving the band major hits with "Always" and "If Your Heart Isn't In It." The music stopped in 1987 when lead singer Sharon Bryant took off for a (modestly successful) solo career. The unfortunate disbanding meant no new releases, although "Secret Lovers" continues to show up in the track list of most every slow jam compilation released to date.
