It was old school friends Jan Kincaid, Simon Bartholomew and Andrew Levy pursuing their near-obsessive love of soul music and 70’s funk that inspired them to form The Brand New Heavies. In 1994, the Heavies – with Grammy Award-nominated American R&B/soul singer N’Dea Davenport as the band’s vocalist – released Brother Sister, which went platinum in Britain. The latest album Get Used To It marks the return of singer N’Dea Davenport, who after the release of Brother Sister left the band to pursue a solo career. The amazing sound of Get Used To It shows that Davenport and the other band members still have a unique musical chemistry together.
