FINLEY QUAYE

 
 

Finley Quaye’s reputation was established by the album Maverick A Strike, released in September 1997 which led to winning the 1997 Mobo Awards for best reggae act. Furthermore the album went gold less than three weeks later, and led directly to the BRIT Award victory. The album is now certified multi platinum and in late 1997 he reached the UK Top 20 twice, with "Sunday Shining" and "Even After All".


In 1998, Quaye performed George Gershwin's "It Ain’t Necessarily So" for the Red Hot Organization’s compilation album Red Hot + Raphsody, a tribute to George Gershwin, which raised money for various charities devoted to increasing AIDS awareness and fighting the disease.


Two more albums were released on Epic, Vanguard (2000) and Much More Than Much Love (2004). "Spiritualized" became his last single to score a top 40 landing in the UK chart when it was released in September 2000, reaching number 26.


He released the EP "Pound for Pound" with Intune Records in 2008, with Norman Grant of the Twinkle Brothers featuring Sly Dunbar and Lloyd Parks. He recorded in 1998 with Buju Banton and Sly Dunbar in Kingston, Jamaica at Penthouse Studios and also recorded with Tricky and Iggy Pop at Sony Music Studios, in Manhattan, New York City.


Present and future for Finley will see him touring live in an acoustic solo format in 2019. The tour will promote the release of his new material, single and album, but will also include classic cult tunes from his previous albums like “It’s Great When We Are Together” to “Sunday Shining” to “Even After All” just to mention a few...Stay tuned!
