One of the UK’s finest Rhythm’n’Blues bands, Nine Below Zero formed in 1979 and named themselves after the famous Sonny Boy Williamson song.
In 1980 they signed to A&M Records, released the seminal “Live at the Marquee” album and by the end of that year had moved from selling out the Marquee to selling out the Hammersmith Odeon.
Their first studio album 1981’s “Don’t Point Your Finger” saw the band appearances on the Old Grey Whistle Test and the South Bank show.
A year later, they appeared on “The Young Ones” with the track “Eleven + Eleven” before releasing arguably their finest album “Third Degree” which features such tracks as “Wipe Away Your Kiss” & “You Can’t Say Yes And You Can’t Say No”. The album’s iconic image was taken by none other than David Bailey.
Nine Below Zero have shared stages over the years with Chuck Berry, The Kinks, The Who, Eric Clapton, & Squeeze.
2019 saw the release of their brand new 12 track studio album 'Avalanche'.
