Biography

Ali Campbell has one of the UK’s most distinctive and recognisable voices.

As lead singer with the world-renowned group UB40, Ali Campbell has sold over 60 million records worldwide, toured across the globe, notched up four number No. 1 world-wide singles, over 40 Top 40 UK singles, released 18 studio albums and received an Ivor Novello Award for International Achievement. At this years Grammy awards UB40 were nominated for best reggae album, for their most recent album released in 2006.

A whole generation has grown up listening to Ali’s infectious vocals on classics like “One in Ten”, “Red Red Wine”, “Don’t Break My Heart” and “Can’t Help Falling In Love”. Ali has stayed true to his love of reggae and its ongoing capacity for innovation. The music that first inspired him has never lost its edge or vitality, and sharing this belief, there are still eight original band members of UB40 performing today.

Ali has recently completed a new solo album featuring special guest artists, with Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare, which is due for release in October 2007.

    Ali talks about the new word reggae-fied, I think the new word should be Ali- fied. Reggae-fied song + unique voice of Ali Campbell = Ali-fied. By the way, Ali, when will Purple Rain be released? Can´t wait to finally hear it...... After I heard the GBS Album ( and loved it of course) I think Purple Rain Ali-fied is going to sound great love Michelle

    Ali could sing a nursery rhyme and make it sound amazing. Without Ali UB40 are just a covers band. Hope he works things out though / families are hard work Reggae -rds Tina

    Happiness' from the 'Big Love album really should have been released as a single. I know it's a Stevie Wonder song and therefore a cover but I think it's quite scary that recordings like that never get the public seal of approval. It really is worth checking out.
