Skylark recorded only a self-titled debut album in 1972 and a second album two years later. Three of the band's members later began solo careers: vocalist Donny Gerard recorded several singles in the mid-'70s and percussionist Carl Graves had two hits in 1975, but the most popular of the band's graduates is keyboard player David Foster. He scored St. Elmo's Fire and recorded "Man in Motion" for the soundtrack. Foster's albums include a self-titled debut in 1986, The Symphony Sessions in 1988 and The David Foster Christmas Album in 1993. Besides Foster, Graves and Gerard, Skylark's lineup comprised vocalist Bonie Cook, drummer Duris Maxwell, guitarist Norman McPherson and bassist Steven Pugsley. ~ John Bush, Rovi
