SWV formed in 1992 with three childhood friends, Cheryl Gamble, Tamara Johnson, and Leanne Lyons. After sending Teddy Riley a five track demo, they earned a recording contract with RCA Records who helped produce their debut album. Released in 1992, It's About Time, featured five hit singles including the #1 single "Weak", and earned SWV a nomination for Best New Artist at the 1994 Grammy Awards. The album was certified triple-Platinum and SWV was the flyest R&B group on the soul scene. They followed up with their sophomore album, New Beginning, which was equally formidable. Their third album, Release Some Tension, was released in 1997 and featured collabos with Puff Daddy, Missy Elliot, and Snoop Dogg. After releasing a Christmas album in 1997, the girls disbanded and focused on side projects.
In 2005, the girls announced a plan to reunite and release new material. Since then SWV tour dates and concert performances have been scheduled periodically. They have performed at the 2008 BET Awards and in 2010 at the Mo'Nique Show. They signed a record deal in 2011 and have been busy working on their comeback album. SWV tour dates are scheduled periodically throughout 2011. Stay on top of the SWV concert schedule and use Eventful for locally scheduled SWV tour dates.
