Ten City (derived from intensity) was a Chicago, Illinois-based R&B and house music act that enjoyed a number of club hits and Urban radio hits in the late 1980s and early 1990s and was one of the first exponents of deep house.[1] Formerly known as Ragtyme, the group comprised vocalist Byron Stingily, guitarist Herb Lawson and keyboardist Byron Burke and were augmented by producer Marshall Jefferson.[2] The group was signed by Atlantic Records and released the album Foundation[3] in 1989, which became the group's only album to cross over, peaking at No. 49 on the US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.

Ten City is best known for the singles "Devotion", "Right Back to You" and "That's the Way Love Is,"[1] which hit No. 1 on the US dance chart and No. 8 on the UK Top 40 in 1989.[4] Stingily, who left the group and became a successful solo artist, re-recorded the song and brought it back to No. 1 on the US dance chart in 1999.
