Founded in the early 80's as a band, Simply Red gradually developed into a solo act of the lead singer & songwriter Mick Hucknall. Their biggest hits are "Money's Too Tight (To Mention)", "Holding Back The Years" (1985), "The Right Thing" (1987), "It's Only Love", "If You Don't Know Me By Now" (1989), "Something Got Me Started", "Stars" (1991), "Fairground" (1995) and "Sunrise" (2003).
Hucknall retired the Simply Red name after a farewell tour that ended in 2010. However, in 2014 another tour was announced to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the band in 2015.
