Evelyn Thomas was discovered in her hometown of Chicago, IL, by Ian Levine in 1975. Thomas, an ex-gospel singer, sung in a plain, unemotional voice that masked her ethnicity; Thomas is a black singer who sounds white, by design or by chance.
Impressed by her voice and willingness, Levine cut some tracks and secured a deal for her with 20th Century Records. Ian Levine and Danny Leake produced Thomas’ first 45 single, “Weak Spot,” which was arranged by Paul Wilson and soon entered the U.K.’s Top 50. The appearances went well but the records never crossed, nor did they do anything in the States. Still, “Weak Spot” sold 70,000 copies, pretty good for a debut.
Over the years, Thomas proved to be one of Levine’s most prolific artists. To date, five CDs have resulted from the chance union of this Brit and American: The Best of Evelyn Thomas, Have a Little Faith in Me, High Energy, I Wanna Make It on My Own, and Standing at the Crossroads. Thomas’ sweet, innocent voice can also be heard on some Redemption tracks when the group was billed as Redemption Featuring Evelyn Thomas, and her singles are included on many compilation CDs. A pretty good run for an American singer who never had a hit or significant record in her own country.
