Biography

1.Melodic Straight Edge on REACT! Records, a la 7 Seconds, Dag Nasty, etc. http://searchforthesun.blogspot.com/

2.Praise (formed in 1991 in London, England) were a new-age music group, comprising Geoff MacCormack, Simon Goldenberg and Miriam Stockley as lead vocalist.

Praise released one self-titled album in 1991, reaching number 2 in the UK album charts. Praise mixes European dance beats with a variety of traditional world samples and styles, in a manner very similar to that of its contemporary peers such as Enigma. The tracks are “run together”, linked with elements of a soundscape mixed in Qsound virtual surround sound. MacCormack and Goldenberg arranged and performed many of the instrumental parts, the latter providing the necessary computer programming. Stockley arranged and performed the lead and many backing vocals. All three have writing credits for Praise, and were supplemented by many other more specialised world performers.

Only You, track 10 from Praise, was used for a commercial for the Fiat Tempra. It was subsequently remixed by producers Andreas Georgiou (cousin of George Michael) and Peter Lorrimer, and went on to become a hit single that still features in “new-age” compilations today. Stockley’s vocals for this track are sampled extensively in the dance track Fiji by Atlantis.

    It is interesting that Only You (by the Miriam Stockley band) is by far the most popular. I recommend Brand New Day and Love.
