Maze is a critically-acclaimed purveyor of R&B, soul, and funk. Emerging from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1970, the band has grown into one of North America's most well-known funk bands. They initially called themselves Raw Soul, a testament to the type of music they deliver. They were discovered by the legendary soul singer Marvin Gaye, which resulted in Raw Soul becoming Gaye’s support act in one of his shows. The music legend suggested that the band change their name. Thus, band founder Frankie Beverly and his mates changed the name to Maze.
Maze moved on to release eight studio albums in a span of 16 years. All their studio efforts entered the Top 10 of Billboard’s R&B chart – two of which went to number 1. They also released two live albums in 1981 and 1986 and seven compilation albums. The band has nine gold certifications, seven of which were earned by their studio efforts, while one went to their 1981 Live album, Live in New Orleans, and another was earned by their 1996 compilation album, Anthology.

The funk and soul powerhouse has released numerous hits, including the Grammy Award-winning song “It’s Your Thing,” “Shout,” “Twist and Shout,” and “This Old Heart of Mine (Is Weak for You).” Since emerging in the ‘50s, the band has released 16 top-selling albums and sold over 18 million copies in the U.S.
In 1970, the band received their first Grammy Award for their single, “It’s Your Thing.” The song won Best R7B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group.
