Who is Liam Bailey?

“He is a Nottingham lad. Maybe soon to be a man.”

Drawn to “the sound, the heart, the lyrics the history [and] the songs” of soul music, new singer/songwriter on the block LIAM BAILEY fell in love with music – particularly Reggae, Rock and Soul – and began making his own on the eclectic Nottingham scene.

Liam’s debut album is being produced by Sex & The City musical director and versatile producer (Nas, Amy Winehouse) Salaam Remi – and, from what I’ve heard of it so far, the pair are crafting an instant classic. The album is due in January 2011 – in the meantime, look out for Mr Bailey’s single coming this September.
