With his dynamic dancing and smooth yet gutsy vocals Morris Day played an essential role in the development of the Twin City dance/club sound of the 1980s. A founding member of Prince’s band, The Time, he remained with the group from 1981 until 1984, when he launched his solo career. Returning again in 1988, he also performed and recorded with The Time from 1990 until 1991 and then after 1995.
Day’s songwriting skills were first recognized by Prince when he recorded Day’s “Partyup.” Day’s solo hits include: “Fishnet,” “The Oak Tree,” “Color Of Success,” “The Character,” “Daydreaming” and more. He has also appeared in numerous films and television programs.
