Biography

H-Town formed in Houston, Texas and consists of members Keven 'Dino' Conner, his fraternal twin Shazam and their friend Darryl 'G.I.' Jackson. For a long time, H-Town failed to find a break. They performed all kinds of gigs and even had the help of a local producer but still were finding things difficult.

H-Town finally had their chance when Luther Campbell heard their demo tape. Unfortunately, he wasn't impressed. However, the group's producer didn't give up and made Campbell miss his flight so that he would hear the group sing live. After hearing them in the studio, Campbell signed H-Town and had them start work on their debut album.

Their first album, Fever for Da Flavor came out in 1993 and had the big hit 'Knockin the Boots.' the single went to #1 on the R&B charts and #3 on the Hot 100. H-Town also performed on the track 'You Will Know' with other singers under the name Black Men United.

In 1994, H-Town released their sophomore album Beggin' After Dark which performed poorly on the charts. Its single 'Emotions' had moderate success, reaching #11 on the R&B charts but did not establish itself well.

Between their second and third album, H-Town underwent serious rearrangements. After putting out the hit single 'A Thin Line Between Love and Hate' from the movie soundtrack of the same name, the group changed their style. They left Campbell, became religious and focused on respect for women. This alteration was seen on their album Ladies Edition, Woman's World that came out in 1997. The album featured women help lines on the back and was dedicated to 'all the women of the world.'

In 2000, hinting at rivalry, Shazam released a solo album, Bringing the Heat. The album was an effort to show that he could sing and perform just as well as his brother Dino.

While working on their fourth album, H-Town was devastated by a tragic accident. While leaving the studio, Dino and his girlfriend's vehicle was struck by a SUV that ran a red light. Both died as the people in the SUV fled.

The album has since been released, coming out in late 2004 and was called Imitations of Life.
