Mike and Brenda Sutton are a fine pair of accomplished singers and songwriters.
From Los Angeles, the husband and wife team of Mike and Brenda Sutton first worked together as staff writers and singers for the Motown label in the early '70s.
Michael was the discovery of a one Stevie Wonder, no less.
While at Motown Brenda sang backgrounds on 'Don't Leave Me This Way' for Thelma Houston, while both Mike and Brenda wrote and performed as part of the group Finished Touch in 1979.
As artists in their own right they wrote and produced.
'We I Make It' (1981) for Sam Records (via Virgin in the UK), followed up by 'Don t Let Go Of Me' (1982), again on Sam (via Silvertown in the UK).
They later released an album 'So Good' for the Rocshire label as The Suttons (1984).
They recorded 'No Other Love' for the UK Motorcity label in 1990, once again as Mike & Brenda Sutton.
Although now separated, Michael Sutton worked with Brenda on a solo project in 2002, entitled 'Hopeless Romantic', which contained the fine tune 'Nobody'.
