The Brand New Heavies

The story of the Brand New Heavies goes back to 1985, when drummer and keyboardist Jan Kincaid, guitarist Simon Bartholomew and bassist and keyboardist Andrew Levy, all classmates from the London suburb of Ealing, combined their love of 1970s funk.

In the years that followed, the band was joined by a brass section, and the cherry on top was when they were joined by vocalist Jay Ella Ruth, which led to their self-titled debut album in 1990. They then signed to American record label Delicious Vinyl, which provided them with recognition on the American market as well. Ella Ruth was succeeded on the mic by N’dea Davenport, and they also re-recorded their debut for the American audience at the behest of the above-mentioned label. The rest, as they say, is history.
