Info: Soul first entered the public eye when he made several appearances on The Merv Griffin Show in 1967 as the mysterious "Covered Man." Although on the program he told the audience he wanted to be known for his music, he made his film debut the same year in The Secret Sharer. He made television appearances on the shows Here Come the Brides and Owen Marshall: Counselor at Law before winning the role that would gain him superstar status.

Portraying Detective Ken "Hutch" Hutchinson on Starsky and Hutch from 1975-79, Soul found the success he needed to pursue other roles, as well as follow his ambition to be a singer/songwriter.

He went on to make several guest appearances on popular shows such as I Dream of Jeannie, McMillan & Wife, Cannon, Gunsmoke, All in the Family, Star Trek, The Streets of San Francisco and the TV miniseries World War III. On the big screen, he had roles in the 1971 film Johnny Got His Gun and as a vigilante cop in Magnum Force (1973) alongside Clint Eastwood.

During the mid 1970s, he released several hits as a pop singer, including Don't Give Up On Us, Going In With My Eyes Open; Silver Lady; Let's Have A Quiet Night In and It Sure Brings Out The Love In Your Eyes. He also had four top 10 singles and two top 10 albums in the UK around this time.

His career dwindled somewhat during the 1980s, with him only making some small appearances on television and in film. He starred in the television adaptation of Ken Follett's wartime drama The Key to Rebecca (1985), and as the infamous Florida robber Michael Platt in the TV film In the Line of Duty: The FBI Murders (1988).
