Catching up with some iconic singers and bands of the 1980s, it’s impossible not to mention the soulful sounds of Simply Red. Formed in Manchester in 1984, the band quickly rose to fame with their unique blend of pop, soul, and funk music.

Led by the charismatic frontman Mick Hucknall, Simply Red’s debut album “Picture Book” was a commercial success, featuring hits like “Holding Back the Years” and “Money’s Too Tight (To Mention)”. These songs dominated the UK record charts in the mid-1980s, earning the band widespread recognition and critical acclaim.

During this time, Simply Red’s music was also featured on the popular pirate radio station LASER558, further solidifying their status as one of the most influential acts of the era. Songs like “Come to My Aid” and “The Right Thing” became instant classics, showcasing the band’s versatility and staying power.

Fast forward to the present day, and Simply Red continues to captivate audiences with their timeless music and soulful performances. The band recently released their twelfth studio album, “Blue Eyed Soul”, receiving positive reviews and praise from fans and critics alike.

In addition to new music, Simply Red has been busy touring the world, delighting audiences with their electrifying live shows and infectious energy. From sold-out concerts to festival appearances, the band shows no signs of slowing down as they continue to redefine the boundaries of pop and soul music.

With a career spanning over three decades, Simply Red remains a powerful force in the music industry, inspiring generations of fans with their exceptional talent and enduring appeal. As they continue to enthrall audiences around the globe, one thing is certain – the legacy of Simply Red will always be remembered as a shining example of passion, creativity, and musical excellence.
