The sister of flutist [a=Hubert Laws], saxophonist [a=Ronnie Laws], and vocalist [a=Debra Laws], Eloise Laws was born November 6, 1949, in Houston, Texas, USA. She began recording for [a=Holland-Dozier-Holland]'s Music Merchant label and had a couple singles released in 1972-1973: "Tighten Him Up" and "Love Factory." When the famous songwriting team folded Music Merchant, they signed Laws to Invictus. They released a few singles and her first LP, 1977's [i]Ain't It Good Feeling Good[/i]. Due to mismanagement, Invictus folded and Laws jumped to ABC to record [i]Eloise[/i], released later that year. [a=Linda Creed], who co-produced the album, produced 1980's [i]Eloise Laws[/i], released on Liberty. [i]All in Time[/i], for Capitol, followed two years later. During this phase of her career, she was also featured on a number of albums by her contemporaries, including Harvey Mason's [i]Funk in a Mason Jar[/i], Aquarian Dream's [i]Fantasy[/i], Lee Oskar's [i]Before the Rain[/i], Ahmad Jamal's [i]One[/i], and several releases by her siblings. She went inactive as a solo artist until the late '90s, when she released [i]The Key[/i] (1999) and [i]Secrets[/i] (2003) on her brother Hubert's Scepterstein label. She spent part of the time away from the studio establishing herself in the theater, even co-writing and taking the original lead role in the Tony-nominated "It Ain't Nothin' But the Blues".
