Andre Cymone is an American musician, singer, songwriter and record producer. Raised in Minneapolis, Cymone and his schoolmate Prince layed the groundwork for the revolutionary Minneapolis sound. After Prince signed a record deal he hired Cymone as bass player for his band, pre-Revolution. In 1981 Cymone left Prince’s band and began his own solo career, releasing 3 new wave/funk fusion albums that spawned several R&B singles, including 1985’s Prince-penned Top 10 hit “The Dance Electric.” Cymone also established himself as an in-demand producer, co-writing and producing songs for a diverse array of acts, including Jody Watley‘s “Looking for a New Love”, “Still A Thrill”, and “Real Love”. In 2014, Cymone ended a self-imposed 27-year recording hiatus with the album The Stone, that saw the artist emerge with some of the most accomplished and personal music he’s ever made. Andre Cymone’s highly anticipated new album titled 1969 is scheduled for release in September 2017.
