Description

Earth, Wind & Fire is an American band that has spanned the musical genres of R&B, Soul, Funk, Jazz, Disco, Pop, Dance, Latin, and Afro Pop. They have been described as one of the most innovative and are among the most commercially successful acts in history. With sales of over 90 million records, they are one of the world's best-selling bands of all time. The band was founded in Chicago by Maurice White in 1969, having grown out of a previous band known as the Salty Peppers. The band is known for its Kalimba sound, dynamic horn section, energetic and elaborate stage shows and the contrast between Philip Bailey's falsetto vocals and Maurice White's baritone. EWF has been sampled by artists such as Missy Elliott, Public Enemy, Snoop Dogg, Jay-Z, the Fugees, LL Cool J and Basement Jaxx. The band have influenced artists such as Beyoncé, will.i.am, Prince, Pharrell Williams and Gloria Estefan. Miles Davis described EWF as his all-time favourite band, saying, they have everything - horns, electric guitars, singers and more in one band. Quincy Jones proclaimed himself to be their biggest fan.
