Biography

There are multiple artists called Blaze: two British heavy metal bands, an American house band, an American MC, a Japanese hardcore band.

1. For the heavy metal band started by the former Iron Maiden singer, see Blaze Bayley. Blaze (sometimes written as B L A Z E for disambiguation) was the former name of Bayley’s solo project until 2007.

2. Blaze (New Jersey, USA), a band from 1984 onwards.

It was formed by Josh Milan, Kevin Hedge, and Chris Herbert, when Herbert introduced Milan, a member of his church choir, to Hedge, his childhood friend. Ironically, Herbert was the one who left the group in 1991, leaving Milan and Hedge to keep working together.
The group’s output consists mainly of house-music tracks with heavy gospel, soul and afrobeat influences (sometimes referred to as gospel house). When the group started, Herbert was the singer, with Milan playing the piano, and Hedge on production. After Herbert left, both Hedge and Milan started to share production duties, vocals, and playing most of the instruments of the group’s tracks and albums. The group achieved notoriety with its remix of Lisa Stansfield’s “People Hold On” in 1989, after signing with the Motown/MCA Records.
Blaze released its debut album, 25 Years Later, in 1990, after which Herbert decided to move to a more R&B-oriented career, while the two remaining members invested in the emerging club culture, opening a nightclub called Shelter.
