Lester Chambers

Lester Chambers was born and raised with his twelve siblings in Lee County Mississippi. His Baptist parents encouraged all thirteen of their children to sing in the local church choir. This early passion for music continued when the family moved to Los Angeles in the early 1950's.

Around the time the Beatles left England for America Lester and his brothers ventured into LA's fabled Ash Grove coffee house and began singing their special blend of gospel/folk music. An old guitar, bass and those heavenly voices led by Lester on harmonica and cowbell soon had folks lined up down Melrose in West Hollywood. Eventually leading them to New York City. Along the way Lester recalls seeing hundreds of colorfully dressed, long haired kids hitchhiking away from their homes. This Hippy exodus inspired his brother Joe to pen the words to Time Has Come Today:

Time has come today
For young hearts to go their way
Can't put it off another day
They say we don't listen anyway
Time has come today

New York was quick to embrace this unique psychedelic, rock 'n' roll, gospel group and Columbia Records scored a huge pop hit with a first ever 11-minute single. Time Has Come Today, the title track became an anthem of the era. Like their good friends, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Sly and the Family Stone, they were filling arenas with both white and black kids for the first time.
