Liam Bailey releases Definitely NOW / The Rock Rag New Releases announcement

Bookmark and Share

Liam Bailey, a singer from the United Kingdom, weaves a mellifluous tapestry of rock, reggae, and R&B. Previously signed by the late Amy Winehouse on her label Lioness Records, Bailey is now on Salaam Remi's (Nas, Kendrick Lamar) label Flying Buddha Records/Sony Masterworks. He and his group have created a strong and eclectic album. Definitely NOW bristles with the multicultural influences of the UK music scene as well as Bailey's Jamaican heritage. The album rocks as well as soothes.

With the help of executive producer Salaam Remi, Definitely NOW begins with the psychedelic garage shuffle "On My Mind." Heavy rock bass and drums with soaring guitar work give way to more in the same vein with "Breaking." The chemistry between the band's rugged sound and Bailey's smooth reggae tinged soul is refreshing and continues on through "Fool Boy."
