Brand New Heavies Bio Top
The Brand New Heavies are a British music institution whose unique mix of jazz, funk and soul has lit up the dance scene for well over two decades – and shows no sign of stopping.
When glamorous filmstar Demi Moore posed naked and pregnant for the cover of Vanity Fair magazine in August 1991 approximately 100 million people saw the cover. Anyone who delved inside would have seen a feature headlined ‘Funky and Chic’ about up-and-coming British band the Brand New Heavies. They were far from new-born, having been conceived in the London suburb of Ealing in 1985 – but they were about to deliver the world some unique music.
The founding and ever-present trio of Jan Kincaid, Simon Bartholomew and Andrew Levy on drums/keyboards, guitar and bass respectively had been influential in creating what became known as the acid jazz scene. They have since steered the Brand New Heavies into the current millennium, where they remain as influential and respected as ever.
