Liam Baily

 

Born in Nottingham to an English mother and Jamaican father, Bailey grew up listening to his parents’ Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder, and Jimi Hendrix records. After moving to London, his emotive and heartfelt brand of acoustic guitar-driven soul soon attracted the attention of Amy Winehouse, who tracked him down after hearing one of his tracks through a mutual friend. Bailey has put out records with some of the most notable producers in pop music and lent his unmistakeable sound to a few genres. Coming full circle now Liam recently signed to Brooklyn’s Big Crown Records and is back in the studio recording his debut for the label with producer Leon Michels. The two met some 12 years ago when Liam was sent over to NY to do some writing sessions with Michels. Finally, the time has come for them to have the opportunity to do a full length record together without the pressures of major label opinions and agendas. Letting the music speak for itself and the title of the first single “Champion” be the hammer that hits the nail on the head, it looks as though all things have lined up now to let him get his proper and overdue accolades.
