Liam Bailey sings with a raw expressiveness that has been compared to Otis Redding. He plays guitar like the third Gallagher brother, showcasing a sharp ear for Beatlesque melodies even in the middle of a blazing solo. He writes songs that are barbed and revealing, as though he’s immersed himself in Pete Townshend’s full catalog.
But his greatest talent may be his ability to absorb, process, and integrate so many disparate styles and traditions into something fresh, singular, and exciting.
His long-awaited debut album, Definitely NOW (Flying Buddha/Masterworks) combines American R&B, down-home rock-and-roll, echoes of reggae sounds and vibrations, transportive psychedelia, and blistering blues riffs into a deft personal statement about battling your demons and finding life-affirming joy in music.
