A redefined, new alternative funk era has arisen out of an established band formerly known as The Family. One Family album equaled a passionate fan base hungry for album two. In 2011 the long wait was over, Family fans met fDeluxe. The Family was a Prince instigated Warner Bros release that received critical acclaim, included a top 10 R&B hit, Screams Of Passion and introduced Nothing Compares 2 U which was famously covered by Sinead O’Connor. The band disbanded after one concert - a sold out show at Minneapolis’ famous First Avenue - and, while they remained in friendly touch with each other, the members forged careers down separate paths.
