Takes a special kind of songwriter on a special kind of record to present yourself just on the piano with your voice and your heart on the line but luckily Liam Hayes as Plush on 'More Becomes You' is a special record. Raw but heart warming and with the kind of melodies that Nilsson would spend his whole life striving for. 

Described by Uncut magazine as “One of the most charismatic and eccentric pop craftsmen of the past twenty years”, Liam Hayes has been making critically acclaimed records since the 90’s. His first single “Three-Quarters Blind Eyes b/w Found a Little Baby” released under the moniker Plush, was cited by the NME as being “ of those rare records - and incredibly rare debuts - that instantly seems a classic..” Although he emerged from the Chicago indie-rock scene, Hayes is often compared with artists such as Jimmy Webb, Brian Wilson, Laura Nyro and Harry Nilsson. Like some of the best folk-pop or soft soul from the 1960’s and 1970’s there is a timeless quality to his music.
Re-release of debut album More You Becomes You is remastered from the original analogue tapes by Jason Hillier and recut for vinyl by Bob Weston, who also remastered the CD and Streaming formats.

A deluxe 12 page full size booklet comes with the LP version (which also comes packaged as close to the original as possible, with a printed outer envelope/bag) and a 20 page booklet comes with the CD version put together by Liam and Jason Harvey, with Sleeve Notes by John Mulvey.

Since his first single, Liam has released six long players. Here are some of the notices for those records: “More You Becomes You” (1998) “Seemingly from another time, eminently perfect ballideering” (Melody Maker), “Fed” (2002) “a soulful symphonic masterpiece” (Rolling Stone), “Bright Penny” (2009) “a lovely collection of blue-eyed soul” (Q), "Korp Sole Roller" (2014) “…sun-warped take on classic pop…gorgeous, seductive creations…” (Uncut), "Slurrup" (2015) “In short: Talented songwriter releases quality album loaded with quality tunes.” (Pitchfork), "Mirage Garage" (2018) "...a devastating one-two punch..." 8/10 (Uncut), " of Hayes' best ever sets.." (MOJO), "...a genuine triumph." ***** (Record Collector)
