•FINLEY QUAYE

60 Minute Live Solo Acoustic set

Finley Quaye now based between London and Paris, describes his new album ‘Faux Naïf’ as Glam Doom. Finley is the son of Jazz and Bebop singer and multi-instrumentalist Augustus Kwamlah Quaye also known as Cab Kaye. Finley is half Scottish and half English and of Ghanaian (Ga/Jamestown, Accra) descent. Finley recorded and co-produced his debut album, Maverick A Strike, in Sheffield with Comsat Angels Kevin Bacon and Jon Quarmby. Maverick A Strike was released on Epic Records in 1997. Sunday Shining was a world wide hit that featured in the US TV series Beverly Hills 98210. Three years after his critically acclaimed debut, Finley resurfaced with Vanguard; a new outlook and musical vision were well rounded and a maturation marked the result. Vanguard was recorded again in Sheffield and released in 2000. Much More Than Much Love was recorded at RAK in London, released in 2004 and included the single “Dice”. The song featured contributions from Beth Orton and William Orbit became a minor hit due to it's inclusion on the OC cult TV series. Although it would be another eight years for a follow-up album, 2008 saw Pound For Pound which was recorded in Brixton and folk album Straight from Country written and recorded in Powys, and a greatest hits package, The Best Of The Epic Years. A release on the French label Sakifo titled 28th February Road was released in France in 2012, followed two years later by a reggae LP called Royal Rasses, which saw Finley working once again with Norman Grant of the long tenured Jamaican act the Twinkle Brothers, Lloyd Parks, Sly Dunbar and Little Roy. Faux Naïf was written, recorded and produced solely by Finley, between Paris, Nimes, Bucharest, London, Manchester and Amsterdam and was released April 2019 as an exclusively digital release. Currently working a new EP and new Album which is scheduled for release this summer 2020. Stay tuned for updates. Thanks for the support !

• SOLO BANTON

Stocky sound-system chanter Solo Banton has taken his time in launching a recording career. But his debut album for Reading-based producer Kris Kemist's Reality Shock label is well worth the wait.

A producer, sound-system selector and emcee since the 80s, Banton was persuaded to come from behind the desk and vocalise in the booth by session-guitarist Kemist. Kemist’s own productions strike a neat balance between British roots music’s present and past: heavy enough for the UK dub rigs yet melodic enough for home listening.

Solo’s gruff delivery, irrepressible personality and fiercely intelligent lyrics may draw a superficial comparison with didactic roots-ragga pioneer Macka B. The rhythms he rides, produced mainly by Kemist with contributions from the UK’s Mafia & Fluxy, Denmark’s One People Production, and Switzerland’s Hugo Wolf, create a patchwork of dancehall, roots and dub without a single audible stitch.

• DA FUCHAMAN
