Biography

Jamiroquai

After a career lasting an era-defying two decades, 30 million albums sales and over 20 hit singles; a shelf-full of awards, including five MTV gongs, an Ivor Novello and a Grammy to name a few, it’s fair to say that Jay Kay, the charismatic quick stepping Londoner professionally known as Jamiroquai, is one of the UK’s greatest musical exports of the last 20 years.

Jamiroquai

After a career lasting an era-defying two decades, 30 million albums sales and over 20 hit singles; a shelf-full of awards, including five MTV gongs, an Ivor Novello and a Grammy to name a few, it’s fair to say that Jay Kay, the charismatic quick stepping Londoner professionally known as Jamiroquai, is one of the UK’s greatest musical exports of the last 20 years.

Emerging from the ashes of the faltering early 90s Acid Jazz scene and inspired by the soul, funk and jazz he listened to growing up, providing a funky alternative to the Beatles referencing Brit Pop of the same era, Jay Kay was a new genre-defying type of pop star. Whatever detractors said about the hats, the dancing, the loose-limbed funk or the save-the-planet message, Jamiroquai’s fans always had the louder voice, making ‘Emergency On Planet Earth’ the year’s biggest selling debut album as it entered the charts at Number One two decades ago in Spring 1993.

A year later in 1994, Kay & co continued to carve their own very distinct niche with second album, ‘Return Of The Space Cowboy’. Through a haze of drugs and frustration its darker grind and jaded inner-city social commentary established Jamiroquai as the face of British Urban music. Still to this day the song ‘Return Of The Space Cowboy’ is Kiss FM’s most played track of all time, with the Morales Mix attaining all time legendary status in Ibiza and beyond.

It was down to third album, 1997’s ‘Travelling Without Moving’, to truly take Jamiroquai to the global masses, selling nearly 10 million copies alone. Resulting in funk- pop classics like the intergalactic boogie of ‘Cosmic Girl’ and ‘Virtual Insanity’, an irresistibly catchy warning against genetic engineering, accompanied by a seminal mind-bending video which captured the imagination and took Jamiroquai global.
Released in 1999, ‘Synkronized’ is the fourth studio album, is known for being the last Jamiroquai album featuring the band's more traditional line-up and sound. The final song on the album "King For A Day", is a regal rock-operatic excursion embellished with fully orchestrated piano and strings, with lyrics relating to Stuart Zender, the band's bass player for their first three albums, who left the band during the making of ‘Synkronized’. Although not the most successful album they released, it marked a turning point in the band’s career, both sonically and in the lineup.
Combining features of disco, funk and electronica, the release of the ‘A Funk Odyssey’ represented the peak of international commercial success for Jamiroquai, and in the ensuing world tour the group became a household name in many countries. The album marks a departure from the band's previous acid jazz sound; the band find themselves in a disco funk vibe, and is also very focused on an electronica sound, evident especially in "Twenty Zero One" and "Stop Don't Panic"
‘Dynamite’ was released on 20 September 2005. The album was released after the 2004 hit movie Napoleon Dynamite featured the Jamiroquai song "Canned Heat" in its climactic dance scene. "Feels Just Like It Should" was the first single, reaching #8 in its first week on the UK charts. It has since become a No.1 hit on the Billboard dance charts in the United States. The single was also certified Gold in Japan for selling 100,000 copies. The album bowed at No.3 in the United Kingdom, becoming the first Jamiroquai album to chart outside the top two spots.
The latest album, ‘Rock Dust Light Star’, is the seventh studio album released by Jamiroquai. The album was released on November 1, 2010. The album was recorded at Jay Kay's home studio in Buckinghamshire, as well as Hook End Manor in Oxfordshire, and Karma Studios in Thailand. The album is written entirely by the band, and produced by first time collaborators Charlie Russell and Brad Spence.
