The Brand New Heavies

Funk royalty and pioneers of the 90s Acid Jazz scene, The Brand New Heavies have sold over 2.5 million records, achieved sixteen UK Top 40 singles and released two double Platinum-selling albums. Headed up today by founding members and principal songwriters Simon Bartholomew and Andrew Levy, the group are stronger than ever, continuing an incredible thirty-year run that’s seen them dominate pop charts the world over and inspire generations of later artists, including Jamiroquai and super-producer Mark Ronson, who named their debut album as one of the five records that changed his life.

Emerging at the forefront of London’s acid jazz scene, the Brand New Heavies transformed their love for 70’s funk grooves into a new and exciting sound that electrified clubs across the UK capital. Throughout an illustrious career that’s seen their line-up change several times, the group have released several albums with songs featuring in Hollywood movies Sliding Doors, American Pie and Happy Feet.

The band will release a brand new studio album in June 2019.
