Leon Sylvers first rose to prominence in the early 1960s as a member of The Little Angles harmony vocal group featuring his siblings (Olympia, Charmaine, and James).
The impresario Mike Curb signed them to MGM Records in 1971 and marketed them as The Sylvers. Leon wrote his first hit single ("Wish That I Could Talk to You") which was on their debut album called The Sylvers.

One song wrote and co-produced by Leon for The Whispers was the number one US R&B and US Dance hit "And The Beat Goes On" whichwould be one of Sylvers' biggest achievements.
This would be the year that Leon would be involved on projects outside of the SOLAR Records family such as his Gene Page single "Love Starts After Dark"and 7th Wonder's song "The Tilt".
