Hue and Cry

Brothers Patrick and Gregory Kane formed Hue and Cry in 1983 and the duo made a huge impact in the late 80s with the albums Seduced and Abandoned and Remote, as well as massive hit singles such as Labour of Love. Albums like Stars Crash Down and Jazz Not Jazz ensured Hue and Cry’s continued triumph in the 1990s, while the release of the hugely applauded Open Soul in 2008 brought them firmly back into the limelight. The release of their seasonal album Xmasday (2009) and live album Bitter Suite, Again (2010), preceded the release of Hot Wire (2012) which received rave reviews.

To date, Hue and Cry have sold in excess of two million records worldwide.

2014 signalled the 25th anniversary of the seminal album Remote, released to not only huge acclaim but to multi-platinum success, spawning the singles ‘Ordinary Angel’, ‘Violently’ and ‘Looking for Linda’. To mark this milestone, Hue and Cry released ‘Remote: Major to Minor’ a multi-media celebration of ‘Remote’ which comes as a limited edition 48 paged book containing four discs, including a re-worked and re-imagined version of the original album.

In 2015, the brothers returned to the live scene with both their stripped format and full live band. 2015 also marked the centenary of Frank Sinatra’s birth, an artist whose career has been a huge influence on Pat and Greg’s musical style. To celebrate they recorded September Songs, a covers album dedicated to the original ‘Chairman of the Board’.

2016 was a busy year for the band, especially on the live scene with performances throughout the UK. The duo embarked on a winter tour with Paul Young and were invited to join Bros singer Matt Goss on two dates of his solo Christmas Tour. To end the year on a high, the band were special guests as part of BBC One Scotland’s live television broadcast for Hogmanay. In 2017 the band released their long-awaited 12th studio album Pocketful Of Stones to critical acclaim, gaining 4/5 stars in both the Sunday Express and The Scotsman.

2018 was a very busy year for Hue and Cry who played headline shows and festivals throughout the UK and Ireland, including a British tour with fellow legendary band The Christians.

Hue and Cry have continued their stellar form into 2019, selling out their ‘Summer Nights at the Bandstand’ show at Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Bandstand within 48 hours. As well as playing live shows up and down the country the guys are currently in the studio working on a brand-new album.
