Australia is about to be treated to a long overdue dose of Acid Jazz when Brand New Heavies tour in July and August with a newly activated Directions In Groove (D.I.G.) also on the bill.
Brand New Heavies had Top 20 albums in Australia with ‘Brother Sister’ (1994) and ‘Shelter’ (1997). One of their early UK hits was a cover of Maria Muldaur’s ‘Midnight At The Oasis’.
Brand New Heavies features the vocals of Angela Ricca, who has also worked with Kelis, Gary Barlow and Rita Ora. Founding members Simon Bartholomew and Andrew Levy continue to drive the band today.
Their last album ‘TBNH’ was released in 2019.
Andrew Levy from Brand New Heavies spoke with Paul Cashmere of Noise1.com.
