112 is an American R&B quartet from Atlanta, Georgia currently consisting of Quinnes “Q” Parker, Daron Jones, Marvin “Slim” Scandrick and Michael Keith.

The beginnings of the band 112 can be traced to the members meeting at high school. Daron Jones, Michael Keith & Reginald Finley sang together while Jones & Keith were in middle school & Finley was in high school. A close friend of Finley’s, Aldon Lagon was recognised for his deep bass voice and added to the line up along with high tenor vocalist Marvin Scandrick who the boys sang with in the school chorus. They changed their name to 112 after a move to New York in 1996, before this they were performing at local events as Forte.

They recorded their debut album in 1996 and it was released in late August to moderate chart success in the US. It peaked at #37 on the US Billboard Charts and has now sold over two million copies in the States achieving double platinum certification. Their rise to fame really began in the following year when two of the singles from second album ‘Room 112’ charted within the top 20 of the US charts and ‘Love Me’ was certified as gold selling.

The band had the incredible opportunity to support Whitney Houston on the ‘My Love Is Your Love Tour’ in the summer of 1999 whilst promoting their first record, understandably their fan base grew substantially. The group’s third albu, ‘Part III’ was released in 2001 and including the hit ‘Peaches & Cream’ which earned the group their first Grammy nomination in the Best R&B Group or Duo category. It received a lot of radio publicity ahead of the release and charted at #2 on the US chart, which still remains the band’s highest chart placing to date. The band then got another fantastic deal supporting another renowned R & B vocalist, this time it was Janet Jackson on her U.S ‘All for You’ World Tour.

The band released two albums on Def Jam after a split with long term record label Bad Boy. In 2008 Michael Keith decided to leave 112 and go solo before reconciling with the group in 2010. The ‘For The Fans’ Tour which kicked off in the summer of 2012 and is still going to date, there are no signs of a new album release yet.
