Gwen McCrae, the American soul singer, began performing in local Florida clubs as a teenager, and singing with local groups the Lafayettes and the Independants. In 1963 she met a young sailer George McCrae who she married, and began a recording career together working with Henry Stone's TK Records.
Signed to TK subsidiary, Cat as a solo artist, she found success on the U.S. R&B charts with her cover version of Bobby Bland's "Lead me On" in 1970, followed by "For Your Love". Following husband George's unexpected solo success with "Rock Your Baby", Gwen went on to have a major hit of her own in March 1975 with "Rockin' Chair", a #1 R&B hit which also reached #9 in the U.S. Billboard hot 100.
