Wright is the sister of the legendary Darlene Love and the lead singer with Honey Cone, who recorded the hits "Want Ads" and "Stick Up" for Holland-Dozier-Holland's Invictus/Hot Wax labels.  After the group's demise in 1973, Wright worked as a background vocalist before recording her only solo album in 1976.  Released on RCA, Oops! Here I Go Again was produced by husband Greg Perry, who infused the album with his signature smooth soul style. The title cut became known as a steppers' favorite and propelled the album to cult status, particularly after De La Soul sampled it for "Pass the Plugs." 

Wright continued to perform session work throughout the seventies.  She may be contacted via www.ednawright-honeycone.com.

Edna Wright's Deepest Groove

Oops! Here I Go Again (RCA, 1976)
The title cut is the main reason this album is sought after, but don't sleep on the ballads.  "Spend The Night With Me" recalls Chic with its string arrangement, " and "Nothing Comes To A Dreamer" is equally, well, dreamy.  There's a decent breakdown on "You Can't See The Forest For The Trees."
