Victor Haynes is one of the most respected names in UK soul music. A smooth and sophisticated vocal style that merges soul and jazz classics with original compositions. Timeless … or modern. Slow, easy listening backgrounds of laid-back soul … or faster, up-tempo dance sets.
Victor Haynes’ versatile body of work made him a ‘one-call’ when artists like Edwin Starr, The Drifters, Curtis Mayfield, The Temptations, The Real Thing and The Crusaders needed the perfect support act for their UK shows.
His international reputation for urbane style has built over three decades of performing at premier concert venues like Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall, clubs, hotels, restaurants, corporate events, private parties and residencies. His versatile professionalism switches comfortably from solo gigs to singing with sax player Dean Houston or his up-tempo Motown-influenced ‘Mainstreet’ band.
Since then Victor has polished his relaxed interpretation of classic American jazz, swing and sweet soul music from Al Green, Marvin Gaye, Nat King Cole and Duke Ellington through to Luther Vandross and George Benson. There’s likely to be some edgy blues too. Even touches of reggae.
Victor’s albums have climbed the UK soul charts and his work, at home and abroad, has included appearances in New York, France and Italy. He’s rubbed shoulders with the Rothschild family, the Duchess of York, Nigella Lawson, Dannii Minogue, Mel B and sporting legends from Mike Tyson and Wayne Rooney to Chris Eubank and Frank Bruno.
A man for all reasons.
