Biography

James Grant left his backseat role in Friends Again in 1984 and took his guitar and vocals to form Love and Money in 1985. It became the outlet for his developing songwriting skills. Love and Money released the single ‘Candybar Express’ in 1986 (UK 56) receiving airplay on new wave radio stations with its mix of jazz, soul, and funk. This debut album however seemed to go unnoticed and did not chart.
Their second album “Strange Kind of Love”, produced by legendary Steely Dan producer Gary Katz, achieved silver disk status and great critical acclaim, and is now recognised as a classic.

Third album “Dogs in the Traffic” spawned some minor singles success, but they would eventually break up in 1994 after releasing a fourth album “Little Death”. James Grant himself went solo but despite positive critical reviews is still searching for commercial success.

    'Strange Kind of Love' is an amazing album. Staggeringly underrated, and underappreciated. Nice to hear they still perform
