Eddie Lee Floyd is an American soul/R&B singer and songwriter, best known for his work on the Stax record label in the 1960s and 1970s and the song Knock on Wood.
Biography,Floyd was born in Montgomery, Alabama, and grew up in Detroit, Michigan. He founded The Falcons, which also featured Mack Rice. They were forerunners to future Detroit vocal groups such as The Temptations and The Four Tops. Their most successful songs included Youre So Fine and later, when Wilson Pickett was recruited into the group as the lead singer, I Found a Love. Pickett then embarked on a solo career, and The Falcons disbanded.Floyd signed a contract with the Memphis-based Stax Records as a songwriter in 1965. He wrote a hit song, Comfort Me, recorded by Carla Thomas. He then teamed with Staxs guitarist Steve Cropper to write songs for Wilson Pickett, now signed to Atlantic Records. Atlantic distributed Stax and Jerry Wexler brought Pickett from New York City to work with Booker T. & the MGs. The Pickett sessions were successful, yielding several pop and R&B hits, including the Floyd co-written Ninety-Nine and a Half (Wont Do) and 634-5789 (Soulsville, U.S.A.).In 1966, Floyd recorded a song initially written for Otis Redding. Wexler convinced Stax president Jim Stewart to release Floyds version. The Steve Cropper-Eddie Floyd Knock on Wood launched Floyds solo career, and has been covered by over a hundred different artists from David Bowie to Count Basie. Eventually, Redding would cut an R&B hit version of the song in 1967 as a duet with Carla Thomas. It became a disco hit for Amii Stewart in 1979.Floyd was one of Staxs most consistent and versatile artists. He scored several more hits on his own, including Ive Never Found a Girl (To Love Me Like You Do) and Raise Your Hand, which was covered by both Janis Joplin and Bruce Springsteen.The song Big Bird (featuring Booker T. Jones on organ and guitar, Al Jackson, Jr. on drums, and Donald Duck Dunn on bass) was written while Floyd waited in a London airport for a plane back to the United States for Otis Reddings funeral. Although not a US hit, it became an underground favorite in the UK, was later covered by The Jam, and was featured on the video game Test Drive Unlimited.Floyds career did not keep him from being one of the labels most productive writers. Almost every Stax artist recorded Floyd material, often co-written with either Cropper or Jones, including Sam & Dave (You Dont Know What You Mean to Me), Rufus Thomas (The Breakdown), Otis Redding (I Love You More Than Words Can Say), and Johnnie Taylors Just the One (Ive Been Looking For). The latter played during the opening credits of director Harold Ramiss film Bedazzled.Floyd, in 1980, also released material on the UK record label I-Spy Records owned and created by the UK band Secret Affair. He joined old Stax collaborators Cropper and Dunn, and fronted The Blues Brothers Band on a series of world tours, and in 1998, Floyd and former Falcon Wilson Pickett appeared on screen dueting on 634-5789 in Blues Brothers 2000.As well as singing with The Blues Brothers Band, Floyd has been the special guest with former Rolling Stone Bill Wymans Rhythm Kings on several dates in the US and the UK.In 2008, Floyd returned to Stax Records, which is now[when?] owned by Concord Music Group. His first new album in six years, Eddie Loves You So, was released in July 2008. In December 2012, Floyd released a new album at Christmas time. Eddie also has a son, Anthony Floyd, that also sings with him. In July 2013, Eddie Floyd released Down by the Sea.He was named to the Memphis Music Hall of Fame and received a brass note on the Beale Street Brass Notes Walk of Fame in 2016.
