Discovered by Charlie Wilson of the GAP Band, and signed to the Total Experience Production Company by Lonnie Simmons, their first album, on the Mercury label - "The Two of Us", was also a milestone in Cavin and Alisa's writing careers (having wrote/co-wrote five of the nine songs on that album including "Don't Stop the Music") They went on to have five (5) singles in the top twenty position on the music charts.
That success led to a wonderful relationship with television shows including several Dick Clark Productions (i.e. American Bandstand, Puttin' On the Hits, etc.) and appearances on various other television entertainment shows and commercials. They have also been presenters of the American Music Awards and received several Jack the Rapper awards.
Y&P now reside in their hometown, Dallas Texas - and continue to perform dynamic concerts, write and produce songs, and run their production company - based in Dallas.
Keeping it "real" in their recording studio is the fun part of the "business". Writing and producing are a part of everyday life for this duo, from R&B to Pop/Rock and Gospel. Along with a host of new talent, the production of commercials, song writing and the producing of other artists, Y&P Productions is definitely on an upswing!
In addition to live concert performances, Y&P have been honing their acting skills with theatrical productions and sound tracks. This is evident by the second run of the Gospel stage play "I Beat the Odds", in which Cavin and Alisa also wrote several songs on the soundtrack, and "Blind Lemon Blues" which has been hailed in France, Geneva and other venues in the United Kingdom.
You may find the music of Yarbrough & Peoples in the record stores on several party CD's, and Polygram/Universals release of "The Best of Yarbrough & Peoples" CD. Their latest multi platinum hit is a song by RAP artist, Eve with vocals by Alicia Keys called "Gangsta Lovin" - for which they were chosen to be the 2003 recipients of the prestigious BMI Urban Music Award as writers - for Most Performed Song.
As the beats go on, so will Yarbrough & Peoples...who are proving to be still at the top of the music game.
When there are quiet moments, you can find Cavin & Alisa at home in Dallas with their dogs, or just hanging out with friends and family.
