Biography
Teaming with husband Nickolas Ashford, Valerie Simpson co-wrote numerous soul hits before the pair began a fabulously successful performing career of their own in the early '70s. Ashford Simpson wrote for the likes of Chuck Jackson and Ray Charles before joining the production staff at Motown and creating hits for many of the company's top acts, notably Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell. They tallied their own first soul hit in 1973 for Warner, racking up a solid string of smashes that include Don't Cost You Nothing (1978), Found a Cure (1979), Street Corner (1982), and Solid, the duo's first RB chart-topper in 1984. ~ Bill Dahl, Rovi
