Assorted Phlavors

Assorted Phlavors was an R&B group consisting of members Tiffany Phinazee, Antonia Bryant (born and raised in Yonkers, New York), LaKisha Johnson and Julia Garrison. The group formed in the early '90s while they were still in high school.

Julia performed in church and high school. She met Antonia who's been singing and performing since she was 12 years old. LaKisha graduated from the Westchester Conservatory of Music.

With the addition of Tiffany and LaKisha, the group was formed. The group won a talent show under the name Essence.

After signing with record label Hall of Fame Records, the group's name was changed to Assorted Phlavors.
In 1997, the group released their self-titled debut album which didn't chart on the Billboard 200 at all.
The first single "Make Up Your Mind" (featuring rapper Big Daddy Kane) peaked at #58 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 11 weeks.
The follow-up single "Patience" failed to make the charts at all.

After that, it seemed that the group has faded into obscurity. Nothing has been heard from the group since.
