Finley Quaye full band show + support

Finley Quaye is the son of Jazz and Bebop singer and multi-instrumentalist Augustus Kwamlah Quaye also known as Cab Kaye.

Finley recorded and co-produced his debut album, Maverick A Strike, in Sheffield with The Comsat Angels which 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 Quaye, between Paris, Nimes, Bucharest, London, Manchester and Amsterdam and was released April 2019 as an exclusively digital release.
