Liam Bailey Visits NPR's 'Morning Edition', mtvU's 'The Freshmen'
UK soul/rock singer Liam Bailey sings with a raw expressiveness that has drawn comparisons to Jimi Hendrix, Jack White, Queens of the Stone Age and Cody ChesnuTT. Co-written and produced by Bailey, and Executive Produced by Flying Buddha label head and Executive VP of A&R Salaam Remi (Kendrick Lamar, French Montana, Nelly Furtado), his debut album Definitely Now is out now via Flying Buddha/Sony Masterworks.
Bailey marked his US TV debut on CBS Saturday: This Morning last weekend (8/23) showcasing his style, woven together by raw guitar that perfectly frames his lyrical and vocal passions. Check out his live TV performance of "On My Mind" and "Summer Rain". NPR's Morning Edition + "Heavy Rotation" is featuring album track "Stun Me" which is available as a free download for a limited time. The "On My Mind" video is currently featured on mtvU 'The Freshmen' and in the running for on-air programming. Check out the video and vote for Liam Bailey's "On My Mind" (open thru 9/5) HERE.
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. Definitely NOW was recorded in New York, Miami and London.
