Featured in TIR Episode 231 (2 parts): Singer, bassist and composer Janice Marie Johnson, most famous for being an upfront member of the late 1970s and early 1980s group A Taste of Honey.
Emerging during disco music’s late 1970s peak, A Taste of Honey notched a pair of No. 1 hits, the dance floor-geared “Boogie Oogie Oogie” and the mellow “Sukiyaki,” as well as three other Top 20 R&B singles. Having won the Grammy Award as 1978’s Best New Artist, the group went on to release five albums through 1984.
Johnson also recorded with Lionel Richie, released a solo album in 1999, later worked with Con Funk Shun’s Felton Pilate (A Taste of Honey toured with the Commodores and Con Funk Shun in the late 1970s), and she continues to perform today.
