Past members

The Pozo-Seco Singers were an American folk band during the 1960s.

Group members Don Williams and Lofton Kline were playing together under the name The Strangers Two when Susan Taylor (aka Taylor Pie) heard them at a Circle K hootenanny held at Del Mar College in Corpus Christi. She asked the two if they'd like to form a trio, which became the Pozo Seco Singers.

Taylor, a student at W.B. Ray High School at the time and charter member of the local folk music society, introduced them to Paul Butts, their first manager. "Time," written by Michael Merchant, was the group's first recording for a local label, Edmark Records, and it was an instant regional hit. Columbia Records then signed the three and nationally released the song, which became the title song on their first album. Two more albums followed on Columbia. They subsequently signed with Albert Grossman management, and Kline was later replaced by veteran folk singer Ron Shaw.

When the group disbanded in 1970, Taylor focused on songwriting for JMI Music and had songs recorded by artists such as Tanya Tucker, The Lewis Family, John Conlee, The Forester Sisters, Mickey Gilley, and Bette Midler.[1] Shaw, with brother Rick, helped form the popular commercial folk group, The Hillside Singers, famous for their song, "I'd Like To Teach the World to Sing," and Williams went on to a highly successful solo career in country music.
