Bluey - Leap of Faith
After 15 albums with Incognito the band’s driving force Jean-Paul ‘Bluey’ Maunick has recorded his debut solo album. Very rarely featured as a singer on any of the band’s albums, Bluey impresses on “Leap of Faith”. Co-produced and co-written with one of his long standing collaborators Richard Bull, the album ranges from dance anthems to funk (“Live Like A Millionaire”) to modern soul classics such as lead single “Got To Let My Feelings Show”.
His solo debut is both a surprise and a delight, featuring as it does both lead and backing vocals from this most reluctant of singers. “I have always felt comfortable leading from the back – guiding others and bringing out the best of their artistry,” he says. “This past year was the first time I felt a compelling desire to bare my soul in this way with what one of my friends called my musical autobiography.”
Bluey has fashioned a truly impressive, soulful album, with stunning falsetto performances and stand-out house tracks “Ain’t Nobody’s Business” and “Why Did I Let You Go?” – co-produced by Ski Oakenfull and Simon Grey respectively - as well as the laid back jazzy soul of “Take A Chance On Me and “Stronger”.
