The Persuasions were formed in Brooklyn in 1962, singing a cappella under corner streetlights and in subway corridors.

Their style combined gospel, soul, early rock and jazz into melodic five-part harmonies. Since being discovered by Frank Zappa, The Persuasions have recorded 25 albums to date featuring the arrangements by Jimmy Hayes, Jerry Lawson, Joe Russell, Jayotis Washington and Herbert Rhoad

and studio productions of music including tributes to Frank Zappa, The Beatles and many more.
