Before teaming up to form the duo that released
four albums between 1980 and 1986, Rene had played with Brothers Johnson and
Angela had been providing backup vocals for the likes of Dolly Parton and
Stevie Wonder. As well as being successful recording acts in their own right
they were also talented producers working with the likes of Janet Jackson and
The Isley Brothers. Over the course of their 4 albums they notched up twelve
R&B hits including the #1’s ‘Save Your Love’ and ‘Your Smile.’

RISE was their third album release on Capitol
Records and is full of classic sounding 80’s Soul and R&B including the
second single KEEP RUNNIN’. RISE reached the #33 position in the US R&B
charts shortly after it’s release.

BANGIN’ THE BOOGIE, the self-penned first
single, mirrored the success of the album also gaining the R&B #33 spot.

MY FIRST LOVE was the single that really
secured Rene & Angela a large fan base, this terrific ballad secured them
the R&B #12. This rise in attention
for Rene & Angela led to their follow up becoming a platinum selling album.

Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, with bonus tracks RISE is a must
for all Soul, R&B and Disco fans.

Press:-

“By 1983 Rene and Angela were about to
release their third, and what would become their most successful album, Rise.
This was Rene Moore and Angela Winbush’s follow-up to their 1981 album Wall to
Wall.”
