Quaye to the Cities - Finley Quaye announces Summer/ Autumn 2010 UK dates
He is a singer-songwriter who burst onto the UK music-scene in the late 90s with two classy hit singles in 'Even After All' and 'Sunday Shining', but promptly dropped from favour just as quickly, despite a trio of competent albums on Sony between 1997 - 2004, the biggest was 'Maverick a Strike' (his debut).
Finley Quaye may be a forgotten man (in the UK anyway, they love him across Europe) but he soldiers on with another raft of dates, many at under a tenner. If you fancy seeing and hearing the sweet tonsils of a man who mixes it up with soul, blues, jazz and reggae, then check out the 2010 line-up so far.
He has a host of unplugged June gigs beginning in Notting Hill (5th), Crewe (11th), Carrick-on-Shannon, Leitrim (17th), Edinburgh (18th), Glasgow (19th), Birmingham (20th) and Southampton (21st). Even armed with just an acoustic guitar, he can charm the birds in the trees.
After gracing the Portuguese shore-line, he returns to the UK for one date with a full band at Canterbury's Farmhouse venue on 11th July before heading off to the States. Upon his return again, he plays more 'full band' gigs at the London Troubadour in August (6th and 7th) as well as Belfast on the 14th. In September, he plays the Capital yet again (unplugged) at the Charlotte Street Blues Bar on the 19th, before hooking up with his band of musicians for a one-off at Manchester's Moho on 19th November.
Much like this year's concerts, Quaye's recording career has certainly deviated in recent years with collaborations with songstress Beth Orton, reggae-master Sly Dunbar, experimental hip-hopper Tricky and Spanish-chanteuse Cathy Claret. He plans to issue no less than THREE solo albums in 2010 - a roots, a blues and a country album which might go some way in explaining his diverse venue choices!
