1989 Waterfront – Cry

1989 Waterfront – Cry  

Phil Cilia and Chris Duffy were two singers from Wales who were members of the Cardiff band The Official Secrets. When that band collapsed, the duo joined forces and began recording as Waterfront.

They signed with Polydor Records and released their first album in 1989. Chris and N Henry co-wrote the song Cry, and Glenn Skinner produced the single. It reached #17 in the UK and #10 in the US Hot 100.

The single nearly reached the top of the Adult Contemporary chart but stalled at #2. 

A few months later that year, the single Nature Of Love peaked at #63 in the UK, #70 on the Hot 100, and only #44 on the AC chart.

The band appears to have broken up shortly after. Chris released a solo album in 1992 that even contained three songs co-written by Phil.

The band reunited for public performances a few times before recording a new album in 2009.

The band announced that they finally had regained control of their catalog of recordings in 2018.
