However, Horace is best known as the bass player with British seminal ska band : The Specials. A band that has just completed a tour in support of the their latest best selling album ‘Encore’. the latest album is eclectic in style mixing ska with dub funk and disco..

The stand out on the first 2 tracks is undoubtedly the dance bass that Horace provided. firstly on the cover ot the Equals funky classic : ‘Black skinned blued eyed boys’. It will be no surprise therefore that Horace’s musical influences go beyond reggae rhythms. Occasionally Horace can be found gigging, presenting his soul grooves.
It was following a recent gig that we caught up with Horace, and he kindly listed his personal Top 10 ‘Soul Grooves’:
1. Trampoline – Spencer Davis Group
