Written-By – Finley Quaye



A 23-year-old singer of mixed heritage--he's part Scottish, part Ghanaian--Quaye can bust a smooth groove like Al Green or offer a straight reading of roots reggae (listen to his jaunty arrangement of "Your Love Gets Sweeter"). "It's Great When We're Together" skirts too close to Green in sentiment and sound, but the blues guitar and deep bass rumble of "Ultra Stimulation" goose an otherwise conventional reggae number. Still, Quaye isn't afraid to explode convention completely.


Despite its hippy-dippy title, "Ride on and Turn the People On" is a thrilling duel between Quaye's elastic wordplay and a hyperactive bassist (who goes uncredited but deserves star billing throughout). Quaye is best when he takes all the music he's heard and fashions a new pastiche that doesn't sound like one. His take on Marley's "Sunday Shining" is one such marvel, a glorious smear of slide guitar, Rastaman imagery, '60s soul horns, and a rhythm track that belongs squarely to the '90s. It may be the brightest light on Maverick a Strike, but this 13-track album never really dims much.


This album extends the role of reggae and R'n'B in the pop area. Finlayes amazing grace in singing has broken though, calmed by mellow dub and sarcastic lyrics.
This album is, and may remain one of the best this decade. Irrespective of the relation between Tricky and Finlaye, you can not help but notice hot related their music is. Finlaye mixes the traditional reggae sounds filters them with r'n'b vibe and adds some interesting dub, that sounds very much like Jah Shaka or Mad Professor.

Finley Quaye - Your Love Gets Sweeter

A lovely little song by Finley Quaye taken from his excellent, and in my opinion slightly underrated album 'Maverick A Strike' - Not because it has a reggae flavour... but the song is very much like a Bob Marley song (lyrically)....
