Purportedly the uncle of Tricky and the brother of prominent guitar sideman Caleb Quaye, Finley Quaye could definitely have relied on nepotism to get himself a recording contract. Fortunately, his sweet voice and feel for a soul groove were the leading indicators in his signing to the Haiku label. After collaborating with A Guy Called Gerald and becoming friends with Iggy Pop, Quaye recorded his debut album, Maverick A Strike, and released it in 1997. He then began recording vocals for Tricky's third album Angels With Dirty Faces. Four years after his critically acclaimed debut, Quaye resurfaced with Vanguard; a new outlook and musical visions were well rounded and a maturation marked the result. Much More Than Much Love followed in 2004. ~ John Bush
