Loose Ends live performance at City Winery. Teo shows 6pm and 9:30. Loose Ends is a British R&B band that emerged in the early 1980s, known for their distinctive blend of soul, funk, and jazz elements. The group, originally comprising Carl McIntosh, Jane Eugene, and Steve Nichol, gained prominence with their smooth, sophisticated sound and polished production. Their breakthrough came with the release of the 1985 album “So Where Are You?”, which featured the hit singles “Hangin’ on a String (Contemplating)” and “Magic Touch.” These tracks not only topped the charts in the UK but also made significant inroads into the US market, making Loose Ends one of the few British R&B acts to achieve substantial success across the Atlantic.Loose Ends’ music is characterized by lush, melodic arrangements and tight, rhythmic grooves, which were innovative at the time and have since influenced a range of artists in the R&B and neo-soul genres. Their style seamlessly fused electronic instrumentation with traditional R&B sensibilities, creating a sound that was both contemporary and timeless. Despite lineup changes over the years, particularly with Jane Eugene and Steve Nichol’s departure, Carl McIntosh has kept the band’s legacy alive, continuing to perform and produce new music. Loose Ends’ enduring appeal lies in their ability to evoke nostalgia while remaining relevant, showcasing the timeless quality of their contributions to the music industry.
