Biography

LFO (an acronym for Lyte Funkie Ones) formed in 1996 in the boy band mecca of Orlando, Florida. There, singer Rich Cronin befriended aspiring model Brad Fischetti, and the duo spent the next two years honing their vocal, dancing, and songwriting skills. With the addition of third vocalist Devin Lima, LFO's lineup was complete, and the trio toured in support of the Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC before releasing a self-titled debut album in 1999. The breezy, lighthearted pop song "Summer Girls" -- which referenced the teen-based clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch in its lyrics, thus enhancing the song's appeal with LFO's teenaged audience -- became a Top Five single that summer. The follow-up single "Girl on TV" enjoyed similar success, and LFO remained on the road for the bulk of two years, performing alongside the likes of Britney Spears while their debut climbed to platinum status. The trio returned to the recording studio in 2001, looking to chart more hits with the release of Life Is Good, but the album failed to yield another Top 40 hit. By the following year, the group had broken up, and a brief reunion in 2009 failed to ignite much interest. Cronin died in September 2010 after a five-year battle with leukemia. Fischetti and Lima relaunched LFO in 2017, but a projected tour was canceled late that year when Lima was diagnosed with cancer. Devin Lima died on November 21, 2018. ~ Jason Ankeny
