Kansas City’s “Bloodstone” remains one of the soul music scene’s brightest and longest-burning lights. Bloodstone has stood the test of time for more than four decades, all the while performing with some of pop music’s most renowned and revered artists.

Wowing the local scene as “The Sinceres”, band founders Harry Williams, Charles Love, Willis Draffen, Charles McCormick, Roger Durham, and Melvin Webb, took their unique sound to stages across their native Kansas City, crossing racial boundaries and working to establish harmony both on and off stage. The Sinceres took their act to Los Angeles, California, where they set the L.A. scene on fire. Performing alongside groups such as then popular “Younghearts” and “The Ike & Tina Turner Revue“, the band honed it’s skills and crafted what became the distinctive “Bloodstone” sound before striking out for London, England in 1972.

A chance fifteen minute performance at London’s legendary “Roundhouse Auditorium” would bring Decca Records knocking at their door. Stax recording artists “Carla & Rufus Thomas”, and the up and coming “Al Green“, had sold out the venue. “Bloodstone” played as a warm-up act while the stage was being set up for “Al Green’s” band, behind the drawn curtains backstage. The band brought the audience to their feet and kept them there throughout the entire intermission in what Britain’s “Blues & Soul” Magazine described as a history-making performance. The five minute standing ovation subsided only when the band returned to take another bow. “Al Green” would remember that night, and “Bloodstone” appeared with him on several tours.

The band that had left the U. S. as the “Sinceres”, returned as “Bloodstone” to record their second album and their first hit song “Natural High.” The group would return to London to record with the London Symphony Orchestra’s string section, and appear with such artists as “The Who”, and “Elton John.” While Natural High was being certified for one million sells, the close knit group would suffer their first loss with the passing of band member Roger Durham.

“Bloodstone” recorded five albums with Decca Records, before venturing into the movie scene and taking on the starring role in “Train Ride to Hollywood”, a musical comedy motion picture, written specifically for them and directed by Charles Rondeau.

After recording albums with Epic-CBS and Motown Record labels, and fighting through the “Disco” era, the band performed with such artists as “Marvin Gay”, the “O’Jays”, the “Temptations”, “Elton John”, “Gladys Knight & the Pips”, the “Supremes”, “Sly & The Family Stone”, “Chaka Khan”, and many others.

“Bloodstone” next signed with the Isley Brothers’ T-Neck Record label, recording the legendary hit “We Go A Long Way Back” in 1982, and while on tour, received the news that Melvin Webb, longtime friend and their original drummer passed away.

The “Old School Rival” of the early 90’s, brought “Bloodstone” back to prominence, and they began an extensive slate of live performances throughout the nation and overseas with “The Mighty Dells“, “Stylistics“, the “Emotions”, and “ The Chi-Lites”.

Despite the deaths of founding members Roger Durham in 1972, Melvin Webb in 1982, and the sudden passing of Willis Draffen in 2002, “Bloodstone”, have kept on singing. Instead of looking for a new voice out west or the east coast, they only had to look across the state line to Kansas City, Kansas native Donald Brown, for that special voice that was needed to preserve that special “Bloodstone Sound”.

“Bloodstone” has now relocated back to Kansas City, started their own label and have now released their first CD, “Now … That’s What I’m Talkin’ About!” on Check It Records, highlighting what “Bloodstone“ calls the “Kansas City Sound”, introducing the nation to the often overlooked area’s talented singers, songwriters, musicians, and producers.

In this newest chapter of the group’s career, “Bloodstone” has made the long journey from scrappy innovators, to “Elder Statesmen” of soul and will continue to do so with grace, talent and in perfect harmony.
