Artist Info

Powered by Audioscrobbler™There are 2 artists known as Spice:

1. Jamaican dancehall recording artist, singer, and songwriter Grace Latoya Hamilton (born 6 August 1982), known professionally as Spice. Referred to as the "Queen of Dancehall", Spice is recognised as one of the most prominent dancehall artists in the world.
Beginning her career in the early 2000s, Spice had her first major success with the controversial single "Romping Shop" with Vybz Kartel in 2009. She subsequently signed with VP Records, and released her debut EP, So Mi Like It (2014), which was preceded by the single of the same name. In 2018, Spice joined the cast of VH1's reality television series Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta in season seven, after appearing as a guest star in season six.
Spice's first full-length project, a mixtape titled Captured (2018), was released independently and debuted at number one on the Billboard Reggae Albums chart. It was preceded by the single "Black Hypocrisy", which addresses the issue of colorism in the black community. Captured was released following a dispute with Spice's record label over the release of her long-delayed debut studio album, Ten (2021).

2. L.A. based indie band Spice, formed in 2018 and based across California, each members’ roots are in the North Bay of San Francisco. Comprised of Ross Farrar (vocals) and Jake Casarotti (drums), both of Ceremony, along with Cody Sullivan (bass), Ian Simpson (guitar), and Victoria Skudlarek (violin), Spice’s sound pulls from the sense of melody and drive inherent to Bay Area pedigree, peppered with modernity and awash with an anthemic haze.

3. Spice were a British pop rock and rhythm and blues band featuring David Byron (vocals), Mick Box (guitar), Paul Newton (bass guitar), Alex Napier (drums) and Colin Wood (keyboards). (Napier was a replacement for drummer Nigel Pegrum; Pegrum would later join the folk rock band Steeleye Span).

In late 1969, organist Ken Hensley, formerly of The Gods and Toe Fat joined. The band's last concert was on 21. February 1970 at St Mary's College in Twickenham, supporting Deep Purple - the band changed its name to Uriah Heep shortly after. The first concert as Uriah Heep was on 20 March at the Technical College in Salisbury.
Spice released one single, "What About The Music" (b/w "In Love") in 1968, eventually transforming into Uriah Heep during the recording of their first full-length album. Songs recorded under the Spice name and line-up have surfaced on:

The Lansdowne Tapes (compilation of recordings by Spice, and outtakes from the first three Uriah Heep albums) - Recorded 1968-1971, released 1994
A Time of Revelation (four-disc anthology of Uriah Heep material, including recordings by Spice) - Recorded 1968-1995, released 1996
Spice recordings on these compilations consisted of "Astranaza", "Born In A Trunk" (vocal and instrumental versions), "Celebrate", "I Want You Babe", "In Love", "Magic Lantern", "Schoolgirl", and "What About The Music". Additionally, two of the songs released on the first Uriah Heep album were recorded by the Spice line-up before Hensley's inclusion, with Colin Wood appearing on keyboards ("Come Away Melinda" and "Wake Up (Set Your Sights)").
