Biography

David Eldon Lasley (born August 20, 1947, in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan) is an American pop singer-songwriter, best known for his contributions as a background singer for such artists as Bonnie Raitt, James Taylor, Luther Vandross, Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick and Dusty Springfield.

Lasley started his music career in his teens, forming a singing group with his sister and achieving some success in the Detroit area. In 1970 he joined the cast of Hair, performing first in Detroit and then on tour. This led to a move to New York City, and performances on and off-Broadway.

Lasley started his career as a back-up singer at this time. Along with Vandross, he performed on many of Chic's and Sister Sledge's recordings.

In 1977 he began touring and recording with James Taylor. Other performers that he has worked with include Todd Rundgren, Melissa Manchester and Bonnie Raitt, who has recorded a number of Lasley's compositions.

Lasley's only hit song as a recording artist, "If I Had My Wish Tonight," reached #36 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1982.
