About Finley Quaye

Finley Quaye is the brother of prominent guitarist Caleb Quaye. After
collaborating with A Guy Called Gerald in Manchester, 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. 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. Although it would be another eight years for a follow-up
album, 2008 saw the release of both a new EP, Pound For Pound, 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 with Norman Grant of the long tenured
Jamaican act the Twinkle Brothers, Lloyd Parks, Sly Dunbar and Little
