about

Multi-talented singer, songwriter, producer, arranger, and label owner Lenis Guess was undoubtedly one of the most celebrated musicians known for his contribution to "The Norfolk Sound".

The self-taught vocalist and musician first started releasing 45s on Frank Guida's many labels before setting up his own D.P.G. label. After D.P.G. closed its doors, Guess, together with his new partner Dorsey "Brock" Brockington, opened up their own recording studio, Brockington & Guess, at 633 W 35th Street, Norfolk, Virginia. Their teen-aged house band, Raw Soul, matured into a tight unit and started backing some of Virginia's finest vocalists. 45s were steadily released but a substantial amount of material never saw the light of day. This collection will give you an impression of the artistry of Lenis Guess, pioneer of The Norfolk Sound.
