An R&B vocal group from Los Angeles, California, USA. In the wake of the success of Frankie Lymon And The Teenagers, many east coast groups emerged with a pre-teen lead sound. The Six Teens diverged slightly from the pattern by virtue of their west coast origin and the use of a female to sing the adolescent teen boy part. The members were Trudy Williams (lead), Ed Wells (lead), Richard Owens, Darryl Lewis, Beverly Pecot and Louise Williams. Their one hit was the fetching A Casual Look (number 7 R&B, number 25 pop), from 1956, on which Williams youth was most telling and appealing. The groups follow-up, Send Me Flowers, was a regional hit in Hawaii, and Only Jim and Arrow Of Love likewise achieved regional sales. The groups last recordings were made in 1958, and Owens became a member of the Vibrations.
