Check out the new Brand New Heavies video for their first single “Sunlight” (featuring N’Dea Davenport) from their forthcoming Shanachie Entertainment debut “Forward,” out May 21st.
When The Brand New Heavies burst onto the scene in the late 80s via London?s rare groove circuit, it was clear they were trailblazers. Their spirited mash-up of R&B, jazz, funk and soul spawned a new movement in music called Acid Jazz and it was not long before they became a musical institution.
Two years shy of their Silver Anniversary and seven years since their last release, the multi-platinum selling super-group are back with “Forward,” their debut on Shanachie Entertainment. The Heavies re-emerge triumphant and in top form with original collaborator N?Dea Davenport and new British vocalist, Dawn Joseph, picking up the baton on several tracks.
Founding member, drummer and keyboardist, Jan Kincaid, also graces us with his vocals as well as stirring up The Brand New Heavies potent instrumental elixir with fellow founding members, guitarist Simon Bartholomew and bassist Andrew Levy.
