Liam Bailey - It's Not The Same EP out 19th June on Polydor

Liam Bailey

'It's Not The Same' is the new EP from rising star Liam Bailey.

Lead track "It's Not The Same" has a classic soul feel, given a contemporary twist by Salaam Remi's production and by Liam's rich, distinctive voice.

Having first captured the attention of the record buying public with his blistering guest vocal on Chase & Status's recent hit "Blind Faith," Liam has recorded a spine-tingling acoustic version for the EP.

EP track listing:
1. It's Not The Same
2. Blind Faith (acoustic)
3. Older than the Sun
4. It's Not The Same (Salaam Remi mix)

Originally from Beeston, a suburb of Nottingham, Liam Bailey's early musical influences included Michael Jackson and R Kelly but it was Oasis that gave him the belief he could make it as a singer.

Liam has retained his namesake Gallagher's swagger, combined with a uniquely English soulful, singing voice that nevertheless has been compared to legendary artists Otis Redding, Sam Cooke and Bob Marley.

It's this stunning voice that convinced Salaam Remi to abandon plans to take a break after working on a string of hit albums, including Amy Winehouse's 'Back To Black,' and instead produce Liam's debut album as a labour of love.

The result is 'Out Of The Shadows', due to be released in September.

Following support tours with Plan B and Jessie J, and guest appearances on Chase & Status' tour, Liam will play a headline show at Water Rats Theatre on 16th June.

Thurs 16th June 2011 London Water Rats Theatre WC1
