Liam Bailey

20 years into his career, Liam Bailey can finally be himself. Over the past two decades, the Nottingham-born singer-songwriter has lent his majestically powerful and affecting voice to enduring tracks as diverse as his 2010 lo-fi guitar and vocal breakout “I’d Rather Go Blind”, released on Amy Winehouse’s Lioness Records, the 2011 Chase and Status hit “Blind Faith” and 2013’s reggae stepper “When Will They Learn”. In 2015, he released his solo debut, Definitely Now, and has since been a sought-after collaborator, co-writing and featuring with the likes of singersVV Brown and Paloma Faith, as well as with dance floor-shaking producers like Shy FX and Break. Yet it’s only now, in 2024, that Bailey has created what he describes as “the album I’ve always wanted to make”: Zero Grace.

Across 12 tracks of tape-recorded analogue ingenuity, Zero Grace sees Bailey unveil a series of remarkable new guises for his iconic voice. From the baritone graininess and psychedelic guitars of “Winter Is Within Thee”, to the sprightly ‘60s Beatles references of “Holding On”,the soul-baring storytelling of his chaotic early childhood on “Disorder Starts At Home” and the infectious falsetto reggae of “Sekkle Down”, Bailey showcases a musical maturity that traverses all aspects of the soulful modern songbook. “I needed to grow to embody everything from The Stooges to Zamrock, Bowie and Peter Tosh,” he says. “I’ve been absorbing it all and now it’s coming out. It’s my finest piece of work.
