Bereits als kleiner Junge fing er mit dem Klavierspiel an. Nach eigenen Angaben begann seine Karriere 1979. Begleitet wurde er damals von seinem Onkel Bill Roachford, einem bekannten Jazz-Saxophonisten. Während der 90er-Jahre war er die treibende Kraft der Band Roachford, mit der er 1989 den größten Erfolg erzielte, als die Single Cuddly Toy Platz vier in den britischen Charts belegte. Sein erstes Soloalbum Heart of the Matter veröffentlichte er im Jahr 2003. Im Jahr 2005 folgte das Album Word of Mouth, welches von Mousse T.’s Peppermint Jam Label produziert wurde.

    Just heard a Roachford song for the first time ('Cuddly Toy') in Alan Partridge (the movie) and thought it was great. Will have to have a listen to his other work sometime.

    v Same here. My dad's a huge fan of Roachford, so I've been listening to his songs since I was very young. Pretty fortunate there.

    He did an impressive job singing for (and touring with) Mike and the Mechanics, so i got curious about his own stuff. Seen him yesterday for the first time at a solo gig and loved it !

    ”Cuddly Toy” = THE #1 tune when on the move and in a hurry, still — and when I need that extra smile on my face. Played much AR in clubs in the −80`s and have heard EVERYTHING he ever did broadcast! Not much lately — is he still alive??

    Not my type of music generally - but "Permanent Shade of Blue" is one of all my all time fave albums !! Great crossover appeal.

    Oh no! Your show with John McKeown at Madame JoJo's is sold out! That's going to be such a great one.

    I've loved Roachford since I was a kid, fav song has to be 'get ready', I never get tired of hearing it!

    Totally underrated. Forget Cuddly Toy and Familiy man. This is an artist that has grown so much since the 80's. Check out 'A Permanent Shade of Blue' and 'Feel'. You won't be disappointed.

    Roachford jumped up on stage at a Larry Graham gig years ago (Jazz Café London) and sang “Family Affair”: fantastic so it was!

    Re-written by a true fan. Permenant shade of blue is a stone cold classic.
