Morcheeba are a British band that mixes influences from trip hop, rock, rhythm and blues and pop. Their most popular albums include debut Who Can You Trust? and Big Calm. They are primarily known for the single “Rome Wasn’t Built in a Day” . The group released their sixth studio album Dive Deep in February 2008.
The group has sold around 6 million copies of their albums worldwide. Sometime in the mid-1990s, the Godfrey brothers (DJ Paul Godfrey and multi-instrumentalist Ross Godfrey) recruited Skye Edwards as vocalist, during a chance meeting at a party in which both brothers were introduced to Skye. This led to formation of Morcheeba. Five albums later in 2003, Edwards was asked to leave the band by the Godfrey Brothers. In 2005 they recorded another album, The Antidote, and recruited Daisy Martey (formerly of the band Noonday Underground) to replace Edwards on vocals. Martey was fired from the band in 2005. Later, the Godfrey brothers replaced Martey with another singer – Jody Sternberg – for their live performances, but their tour in support of Dive Deep was with French singer, Manda, on lead vocals. Their lastest studio album Dive Deep was released in February 2008 in Europe and the UK. This album, produced by Paul and Ross Godfrey, featured several guest vocalists including Judie Tzuke, Thomas Dybdahl, Cool Calm Pete, and Manda.
