After a complete sell out in Dublin's Whelans back in April, Finley Quaye makes a triumphant return to the Capital to play the Village Venue on Dublin's Wexford Street.

In 1997 Finley Quaye released his debut album "Maverick A Strike", which included the hits "Sunday Shining" and "Even After All", sold over five million copies world wide. That same year Finley scooped 'Best Male Singer' at The Brit Awards and play every major festival in The UK and Europe. He was the opening act for Oasis in Slane the same year.

Finley is currently busy finishing his new album which will be released in 2010 and starts a major UK / Ireland Tour in September.

Maverick, now there's an overused word. Restless Finley Quaye fits the bill perfectly with a multifaceted, multi ethnic catalogue of music that somehow mashes pure pop to the underground. He scored a solo record deal with Polydor Records 1994. He began working with Epic/Sony in 1996 and in 1997 he reached the UK Top 20 twice with 'Sunday Shining', and 'Even After All'.

‘Sunday Shining' was classic Finley with its bizarre cross section of influences of Tenor Saw, the Breeders and the Zombies mashed together.

His debut album Maverick A Strike is a masterpiece capturing the sunshine vibe of primetime Marley but placing it firmly in the concrete of mid nineties bohemian Britain and making it pure pop. Finley's following two albums are even more musically satisfying and challenging and were released on Epic, Vanguard (2000) and Much More Than Much Love (2004). Quaye is readying several albums. ‘Pound for Pound' and ‘The Best Of The Epic Years' on Sony/BMG are both out this year.

'Straight From Country' a country album and also 'Pinnacle' which are both prepared for release in 2009.

He is currently living between London and Miami.
