Nottingham's Liam Bailey has got soul.
The audiences on Imelda May's huge nationwide tour know all about that - he supported her, and night after night gave his all onstage.
Already revered by his fellow musicians, Liam Bailey's look set to end 2018 on a high, with a storming new single and a headline date in London.
New single 'Brother, Why You Gotta Love Her' is a plea from the heart, with that incredible vocal set alongside a snappy bass line and those funky drums.
It makes you move, but the lyrics seep down inside you, with Liam Bailey's plea for love and self-worth connecting on a deeper level.
He explains: “I was inspired to write the song after getting out of a long and painful situation that I was in with someone. We loved something other than ourselves and it led to a toxic place. I didn't mean to write the song, I just let things go in the studio and see what happened. I have known and worked with Maverick Sabre for years, and it was a blessing to work with him on this record...”
Tune in now.
Catch Liam Bailey at London's Omeara on September 29th.
