Brand New Heavies are Ealing’s primary exponents of acid jazz and a band who have had some 16 top 40 hits over their career. Not only that but they’ve managed to sell more than two million albums since they first got together over a shared love of funk and soul.

2013 sees the band back with a new album Forward, upcoming tour as well as working with new vocalist Dawn Joseph. Jan Kincaid, Simon Bartholomew and Andrew Levy (on drums/keyboards, guitar and bass respectively) are still at the helm of the Heavies steering their music into classic sounds and new territories.

You can watch two exclusive M sessions filmed at Gibson Studios here. Watch the band perform their new single Sunlight and their classic hit Dream on Dreamer.

M had the pleasure of quizzing the band about how they first got together, the music which inspired them and where the group’s name came from. Watch the interview below...
