The message has always been to stand for peace, love, and happiness. For legendary singer songwriter, Felix Cavaliere, making people feel good is primary to his illu strious 50 - year career that includes the Rock & Roll Hall of Fam e, Songwriter Hall of Fame , Vocal Group Hall of Fame, and Grammy Hall of Fame. Few artists can claim they defined a generation; FELIX CAVALIERE continues to remind us to keep listening for the world’s beauty.

The classically trained pianist, born in Pelh am, New York, idolized Ray Charles, Marvin Gaye, an d Sam Cook. Felix Cavaliere embraced the Hammond Organ and pioneered a fr esh, rock and roll sound. Upon leaving Syracuse University to form the Escorts, and become a backup musician for Joe Dee and the Sta rliters and later Sandy Scott , w ho knew that his legendary next stop would be the beginning of an illustrious hall of fame career.

Early in 1965, Felix Cavaliere formed the ‘Young Rascals’ w ith Dino Danelli, Eddie Brigati, and Gene Cornish. That October, they caught the attention of promoter/manager Sid Bernstein with their high - energy set at Long Island’s elite club, Barge. Signed to Atlantic Records, and now called The Rascals, the mega hit “Good Lovin’” struck No. 1 in February 1966. They followed suit with a string of hits like “I’ve Been Lonely Too Long,” “Groovin’(No. 1 in 1967), “How Can I Be Sure,” “A Girl Like You,” “A Beautiful Morning,” and “People Got to Be Free” (No. 1 in 1968). The Rascals are considered the best ‘blue - eyed soul’ group to com e out of the 1 960s, as well as one of the groups with the most record sales.

By the early 70s, The Rascals experimented with more jazz - influenced sounds, and moved to Columbia Records. The Rascals disbanded in 1972. Felix Cavaliere's solo career thrived during this decade. He released his self - titled debut album with Todd Rundgren at the producer helm. His follow - up albums were Destiny (1974), Castles in the Air (1979) ( Castle in the Air produced another Top 40 hit – “Only a Heart Sees” reached No. 2), Dr eams in Motion (1994) and in 2008 he collaborated with Sta x guitar legend, Steve Crooper, on the Grammy - nominated Nudge it Up a Notch and again in 2010 with Midnight Flyer .
