One of the most successful acid jazz/UK funk groups of all time. Lead vocalists over the years include Linda Muriel, Jay Ella Ruth, N’Dea Davenport, Siedah Garrett, Carleen Anderson, Nicole Russo, Honey Larochelle, Dawn Joseph and Sulene Fleming. All but the last two have appeared on lead vocals on the group’s records. The group enjoyed the most success with N’Dea Davenport in the first half of the 90s. Davenport returned to The Heavies for the “Get Used To It” and “Live In London” albums, after which the latest vocalist Dawn Joseph gradually took over lead vocal duties.
