Ashford & Simpson were an American husband-and-wife on team and recording duo of Nickolas Ashford (May 4, 1941 – August 22, 2011) and Valerie Simpson (born August 26, 1946). Ashford was born in Fairfield, South Carolina, and Simpson in the Bronx, New York City. Ashford & Simpson recorded the album Been Found with poet Maya Angelou in 1996. Around that time, they were also featured disc jockeys on New York radio station WRKS. On August 16, 2006, Playbill Online reported that they were writing the score for a musical based on E. Lynn Harris's novel Invisible Life. In January 2007, they, along with Tina Turner, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Sidney Poitier, director Spike Lee, and comedian Chris Rock accompanied Oprah Winfrey when she opened her Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa.

The album features the song "Solid", which became the songwriting duo's biggest hit as performers. The album peaked at No. 1 on the US R&B albums chart. It also reached No. 29 on the Billboard 200. The album's title track peaked at No. 1 on the Hot Black Singles chart, No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 3 in the UK Singles Chart.

This album from 1983 is Ashford and Simpson perfection. A perfect mix of uptempo tracks with some glorious ballads. The title track HIGH RISE is a sublime dance trace with an irresistible beat and of course the glorious harmonies of our married duo. They seem to be having so much fun. SIDE EFFECT and IT'S MUCH DEEPER are also uptempo standouts. For me though the true magic on this album comes from the superb ballads. EXPERIENCE (LOVE HAD NO FACE) and I'M NOT THAT TOUGH are songs with deep meaning and are sung with heartfelt conviction

Simpson still sang effectively, and Ashford harmonized and contrasted her nicely, but they'd stated and restated both their own situations and any variations on it four albums before. As a result, the feeling that you've heard it all once too often permeates this album. Not that their fans wouldn't want to listen once more, nor that what they had to say wasn't at times compelling; it's just that it no longer was special. 1 High-Rise Ashford & Simpson 5:30. 2 Side Effect Ashford & Simpson 4:6. 3 Experience.
