Finley Quaye Unplugged at Talleyrand
Finley Quaye unplugged, a unique acoustic set at Talleyrand.
Finley Quaye's reputation was established by his multi award winning debut album, Maverick A Strike, released in September 1997. It went gold less than three weeks later, and led directly to BRIT and MOBO Award victories. The album is now certified multi platinum. Since then he has created six more studio albums and describes his latest release, ‘Faux Naïf’ as Glam Doom.
He also lived in Manchester for many years here in Levenshulme (see below for his quote on his time here) and is based between London and Paris. We're delighted to have him at Talleyrand for a unique and rare unplugged acoustic gig.
Finley on his time in Levenshulme
"Maverick A Strike; I Need A Lover, Your Love Gets Sweeter, It's Great When We're Together, Even After All & Sunday Singing were all written and recorded by me in 1992 at Osbourne Road, Levenshulme which was my Aunt Sal's house and our family house until she moved to Wales. I lived there between the ages of 11 and 19 when I did a music course called Pop Music & Sound Recording at Arden Music College. I played a lot of the drums originally, I did the percussion and vocals, and bass was either done by me Chris Shaw who had married my aunt after my Uncle on my Mother's side moved on from Manchester. Tom Greenwood did the rhythm guitar on Your Love Gets Sweeter and Stuart Stalwart who was a friend of the family did some Saxophone on Your Love Gets Sweeter. I did the backwards guitar on I Need A Lover as well as the guitars on Sunday Shining both rhythm and lead.
