Hue and Cry Music

Hue and Cry

Brothers Patrick and Gregory Kane formed Hue and Cry in 1983, the duo made a huge impact in the late 80’s with the albums ‘Seduced and Abandoned’ and ‘Remote’ as well as the 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 1990’s, whilst 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 Hue and Cry 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 Hue and Cry released ‘Remote: Major To Minor’ a multi - media celebration of ‘Remote’ which comes as a limited edition 48 page book containing four discs, including a re-worked and re-imagined version of the original album. In 2015 the brothers have returned to the live scene with both their piano & vocal format and their live full on band appearing as part of the Rewind Festival tour. This year is 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 have recorded ‘September Songs’ a covers album dedicated to the original Chairman of the Board.
