Lamont Dozier

Lamont Dozier, along with the brothers Brian Holland and Edward Holland, Jr, formed the songwriting team Holland-Dozier-Holland that was responsible for much of the Motown sound that dominated American popular music in the 1960s.

The trio wrote songs, and helped on record production, for a number of stars who recorded with Motown Records, including Heat Wave for Martha and the Vandellas, How Sweet It Is (To be Loved by You) for Marvin Gaye, and many hits for The Four Tops and The Supremes.

In all, they were responsible for 25 top-10 hit singles.
