One Way is an American funk/R&B band that was popular during the 1970s and most of the 1980s.

The band also included keyboardists Jack Hall and Jonathan “Corky” Meadows, drummers Theodore Dudley and Gregory Green and guitarist Cortez Harris. They recorded several singles for Atco Records before signing with ABC Records and released  their debut album “Especially For You” in 1977. They released their follow up effort “Cherish” that same year and released their third effort “Spreading Love” in 1978. By that time ABC was in the process of being purchased by MCA Records and singer Alicia Myers joined the group. In 1979, they released the album “Happy Feeling” as Al Hudson and the Soul Partners.
