Royce Jones

Before Royce Jones joined Steely Dan, he shared vocal duties with Billy Pierce and Kathleen Warren during his time at 7-piece folk-funksters Odyssey (not to be confused with their namesake, the disco trio from NYC). On ‘Our Lives Are Shaped By What We Love’, Warren also plays piano and vibes, Warner Schwebke plays bass, Don Peake and Don Dacus play guitars and Gene Pello plays drums. In 1972, the song featured on their only album on Mowest, the commercially disastrous Californian arm of Motown. But this song is a classic rare groove.
