Simon Law - Look to the Sky
A familiar sound returns….like an old friend. The gorgeous vocals of Caron Wheeler and the rhythmic vibe of Simon Law…
Simon was a key member of Soul II Soul from the very beginning, co-writing their two Grammy-winning songs “Back To Life (However Do You Want Me)” and “African Dance”. He has worked on all their albums except one, producing and co-writing many of their hit singles. He still performs regularly with the band at festivals and on major TV appearances.
On his debut solo album ‘Look To The Sky’ - released June 23rd, 2017 on Dome Records. Simon Law reunites with Soul II Soul’s Caron - on the uplifting lead single “Morning Love” - as well as with Jazzie B and Chante Moore. Maxi Priest guests on two tracks, - the gentle reggae of “Sunshine Girl” and “When You Love Someone”, which features contributions from legendary Jamaican rhythm section Sly and Robbie.
His main writing collaborator, who sings lead vocals on the hooky “Rocket Ship”, “Fire On Fire” and a number of other tracks, is Lain Gray, originally a member of UK vocal group Nu Colours. Jamaican singer Nadine Sutherland, a Bob Marley discovery who was the first signing to his Tuff Gong label at the age of 11, turns in an outstanding performance on “Love Comes Back To You”.
Mixed by Sting’s longtime sound engineer Donal Hodgson and mastered at London’s Abbey Road studios, this is an album that is at turns funky, ethereal and majestic, with a strong rhythmic vibe throughout.
