    Howard Jones

    It was in 1983 that Howard Jones first burst upon the contemporary music scene with his very English songwriting, pioneering synthesizers and thought provoking lyrics. He has sold over 8 million albums with songs like “Everlasting Love,” “No One Is To Blame,” “Things Can Only Get Better,” and “What is Love?”

    English Beat

    The English Beat achieved great success beginning in 1979 with the British Two-Tone Ska movement and their songs of love and unity set to a great dance beat including “Hands Off…She’s Mine,” “Twist And Crawl,” “Save It For later,” and “I Confess.”

    Modern English

    Formed in 1979, the British post-punk/pop band, Modern English, might be best remembered for their song “I Melt with You.” With the release of their 2016 album, Take Me To The Trees, the original band members are touring the US in 2017!

    Men Without Hats

    The new wave synth pop collective Men Without Hats were formed in 1980. The single “The Safety Dance” became a major hit, peaking on the American charts at number three in 1983. Driven by an insistent three-chord synthesizer riff, the song was one of the biggest synth pop hits of the new wave era. 1987’s “Pop Goes the World” was a bigger success.

    Paul Young

    British pop singer, Paul Young, hit the charts in the summer of 1983 with a cover of the Marvin Gaye classic “Wherever I Lay My Hat (That’s My Home)” when it hit No. 1 in the UK for three weeks. His follow-up single “Come Back and Stay” reached No. 4, but his biggest worldwide hit was a version of Daryl Hall’s “Everytime You Go Away” in 1985. The song reached #1 on the U.S. pop charts. “Oh Girl” peaked at #1 on the U.S. Billboard Adult Contemporary Chart in the Autumn of 1990.

    (ex-Katrina & The Waves)

    American Katrina Leskanich provided the powerful vocals for American-British band, Katrina and The Waves, who were best known for their evergreen, step-lightening 1985 hit single “Walking On Sunshine.” Katrina and The Waves had their first big break in 1984 when The Bangles covered their song “Going Down To Liverpool.” This drew attention to the group and lead to their international success.
