The Jaded Hearts Club is a brand new Northern Soul style band formed in 2017 with an all star line up consisting of frontmen Miles Kane (The Last Shadow Puppets) and Nic Cester (Jet), guitarists Graham Coxon (Blur) and Jamie Davis, plus Matt Bellamy (Muse) on bass and drummer Sean Payne (The Zutons).
The band was put together by Jamie Davis a British guitarist living in Los Angeles who previously ran Coxon’s Transcopic Records label, when he couldn’t find a Beatles tribute band to play his birthday party. “I realised I knew a bunch of half decent British musician friends living in L.A. so I thought I’d ask if they’d come together to form an early ‘60s Cavern-era Beatles band.” said Davis
With there first gig being an huge success they where invited to play at Stella McCartney’s fashion show in Los Angeles in January 2018 the audience for this show included Katy Perry, Quincy Jones, James Corden and Ringo Star. “And then things took a turn for the unbelievable. Paul McCartney strolled on stage, winked at Davis and led the Hearts through ‘I Saw Her Standing There’ and ‘Helter Skelter’. In the space of just two gigs, The Beatles covers band had effectively become the surrogate Beatles”
After the success of the live shows the band wanted to develop even further and decided to record an album of mostly northern soul classics and put there own modern twists and take’s on each song.
The first song the band released is ‘Nobody but Me’ originally recorded by The Isley Brothers in 1962 and then The Human Beinz in 1968 the band decided to take more inspiration from The Human Beinz cult version when recording the song.
The song jumps right in with bass, drums and guitar coming together to produce a high energy toe-taping rhythm that leads perfectly into the fun up- beat vocals coming from the one and only Miles Kane – this song is definitely one that will get you singing along. With such a talented and star studded line up this song is perfection in every way from the drums and bass that keep the high energy rhythm going through out to the raucous guitar solo from Graham Coxon if you haven’t listened to this cover of ‘Nobody but Me’ you are really missing out on some amazing music.
