American vocal and instrumental duo The Carpenters were made up of the late Karen Carpenter and Richard Carpenter. Their style was known for being soft and it combined Karen's contralto vocals with Richard's strong skills in arranging and composing music. Their career together spanned fourteen years and numerous hits. In that time they recorded ten albums, enjoyed many singles and even featured in a number of television specials. Karen and Richard were born in New Haven, Connecticut and grew up in California. The first time the siblings performed together as a group was in 1965, when they formed the Richard Carpenter Trio, a jazz-oriented group. They signed to A&M Record in 1969 under Carpenters, and their first major success came just a year later. Their first hits included "(They Long to Be) Close to You" and "We've Only Just Begun". They broke the American Top 40 charts and topped the game in the easy listening and soft rock genres. To date, they have sold more than 100 million records globally, which renders them one of the best-selling musical acts of all time. During the 1970s, the duo were constantly touring, and this put their personal lives under strain. While Richard developed an addiction, Karen began to suffer from anorexia nervosa.
