We’ve been championing rising Nottingham soul star Liam Bailey for some time now here at Spotify, ever since he released his first 2 EPs on Amy Winehouse’s Lioness label last year. Blown away by his impressive pipes and raw talent, we asked him to play for us at Koko on Sept 2010
Since then, he’s had Top 5 success on the massive Chase & Status hit Blind Faith which he co-wrote with the band, and has toured with not only Chase & Status, but has also hit the road since with both Plan B and Jessie J.
Liam now releases his new stunning 4 track EP It’s Not The Same. The accompanying video for the lead track was shot in Cuba, and is available to watch below, along with other great clips, such as a spine-tingling acoustic version with cello of Blind Faith (also on the EP), plus other live and acoustic clips of Liam. There’s also a brilliant clip of Liam record shopping in his hometown of Nottingham, where he talks of early inspirations from Michael Jackson to John Martyn.
