Finley Quaye (born on 25 March, 1974) is a British musician. He won the 1997 Mobo award for best Reggae act, and the 1998 Brit Award for Best British Male Solo Artist.
Quaye was born in Stockbridge, Edinburgh. He is the son of Cab Quaye and the brother of noted guitarist Caleb.
Quaye made his recording debut in 1995 on A Guy Called Gerald's "Finley's Rainbow". He made a solo deal with Epic Records, and, in late 1997, reached the UK Top 20 twice with "Sunday Shining", and "Even After All". His reputation was established by Maverick A Strike, an adventurous but accessible album released in September 1997, which sold gold less than three weeks later and led directly to the Brit Award victory.
In 2004 the song "Dice", in collaboration with William Orbit, and featuring Beth Orton was a minor hit, helped in part by its inclusion on The O.C. soundtrack.
