With the unmistakable voice of Heather Small joining Paul Heard, Shovell and founder Mike Pickering, M People released almost 20 Top 40 UK singles. 10 of these were Top 10’s including inspirational national anthems like ‘Sight for Sore Eyes’, ‘Moving On Up’, ‘Search For The Hero’ and ‘One Night In Heaven’.
M People’s first album the acclaimed ‘Northern Soul’ was released in 1992 and was hailed as one of the best dance albums of that year The album featured their first top 10 single ‘How Can I love You More’.
The following year, the percussionist Shovell joined the group and the band’s line up was complete. That year M People went onto win a Brit Award and the prestigious Mercury Music Prize with their second album ‘Elegant Slumming’.
Their third album, ‘Bizarre Fruit’ (1994) stayed in the UK chart for two and a half years. It saw the band win another Brit Award and play the main stage at Glastonbury Festival that same year.
This October will be M People’s first full tour in eight years following their Ultimate Collection arena dates in 2005 and sees Heather Small, Paul Heard and Shovell take on 14 dates across the country including just one show in Glasgow’s Clyde Auditorium.
