Retro-soul vocal duo Myron & E are Myron Glasper and Eric Cooke. South Central Los Angeles native Glasper has been active since the early '90s, when he danced in episodes of In Living Color and worked as a background vocalist during sessions for MC Lyte and CeCe Peniston.
Cooke, from Newark, New Jersey, came up as a DJ and producer. The two crossed paths while touring with Blackalicious but didn't form their duo until Cooke asked Glasper to help him write and sing over instrumentals recorded by Finnish retro-soul band the Soul Investigators. As Myron & E, they debuted on the Soul Investigators' Timmion label in 2008 with the "Cold Game" single. Stones Throw subsidiary Now-Again licensed the 7" for release in the U.S. "It's a Shame," "On Broadway," and "Pot Club" -- the last of which was issued on Timmion offshoot Nite Club -- came out in 2010. Myron & E, still backed by the Soul Investigators, then recorded an album, Broadway, released in July 2013 on Stones Throw. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
