"Jamie Lidell, soul vocalist extraordinaire, is finally set to release his first solo recordings in five years! Erstwhile co-pilot in the digi-funk colossus Super_Collider (alongside Cristian Vogel), Jamie Lidell has spent the intervening period since 2001 conquering, nay, vanquishing, the stage with a blazing solo live show, (costume and live VJ enhanced), pitched somewhere between 'a 21st century reincarnation of Little Richard' with 'a soul voice fried in honey like Sly Stone or Prince, and a beatboxing talent to make Muhammad Ali quake in his Everlast,' delivering time and again 'a thrilling, visceral performance,' 'pure, visceral power: a scintillating display of demented musical and physical energy,' both 'exhilarating' and 'astounding,' A British soul vocalist beyond your wildest imagination, , Jamie Lidell has crafted a twisted R&B album with all the hallmarks of a vintage classic. Multiply is a refreshingly modern update that retains all the power, pop and emotion of singers like Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, Al Green and even peak period Michael Jackson, immersed in the energy and virtuosity of production masterminds like Quincy Jones or Herbie Hancock, done in inimitable Jamie Lidell style. Hold onto your hats, ladies and gentleman -- a new vocal star is about to take flight."
