“a psychedelic stomper that sounds something like Hendrix covering a White Stripes track.”
– Entertainment Weekly
“His vocals… parallel Bob Marley with guitar riffs that bring to mind the likes of Gary Clark, Jr.”
“… threads together blues, garage rock, and soul, finding a sweet intersection between all three.”
UK soul/rock singer Liam Bailey will release his debut album Definitely Now on Flying Buddha/Sony Masterworks. The album will be released August 19th 2014 and is now available for pre-order with single “On My Mind” offered as an instant-grat download upon purchase. Bailey’s smooth seductive croons pack a punch over frenzied guitar on the explosive rock ‘n roll soul banger “Villain”. Offering another taste of the record, “Villain” premiered with Entertainment Weekly and is available to post & share HERE.
Liam Bailey sings with a raw expressiveness that has been compared to Bob Marley and Sam Cooke, while his songwriting style is liable to reference post Punk bands like The Smiths and Oasis. Everything is woven together by a lean guitar-driven instrumental sound, perfectly framing Liam’s lyrical and vocal passions. He will make his US TV debut on CBS This Morning’s Second Cup Café on August 23rd and will perform a stint of dates in NYC and LA including NYC’s Central Park SummerStage and School Night.
The Nottingham, England native got his initial introduction to the music business via his friend, producer Salaam Remi. Remi introduced Bailey to the late Amy Winehouse, who was so impressed with his music that she signed Bailey to her Lioness Records imprint and recorded 2 EP’s with him – So Down Cold and 2AM Rough Tracks. Bailey has collaborated with a wide variety of artists including Rita Ora, Tom Odell and Shy FX. He co-wrote the Chase & Status hit “Blind Faith” which debuted in the top 5 of the UK Singles Chart.
Definitely NOW was recorded in New York, Miami and London. It was co-written and produced by Bailey, and Executive Produced by Flying Buddha label head and Executive VP of A&R Salaam Remi.
