In 2001, Oli Lazarus founded Papa Records and simultaneously launched Reel People on to the soulful underground stage. Debut single Spiritual landed soon after. Its’ warm, engaging brand of soul-infused house clearly signalled Reel People’s potential. In 2002, talented musician and writer Mike Patto joined the project and, a year later, Reel People’s hugely acclaimed sophomore album Second Guess was released on Papa. Reel People subsequently went live, touring globally with highlight shows at the Tokyo Jazz Festival alongside Herbie Hancock, Japan’s infamous Blue Note club and, back in the UK, V Festival and T In The Park.

A 2004 showcase at the House Music Awardswas lapped up by Defected Records boss Simon Dunmore, who subsequently re-released Second Guess with a tasty bonus disc of live recordings and remixes, and three new songs, including The Rain graced by the vocal charms of Sharlene Hector. Come the re-release, early 2005, Reel People was thrust tastefully into the hearts and minds of even more underground listeners.

In 2008 Oli started working with Tony Momrelle and Imaani who featured on the new album back then. Mike Patto left late 2008 to push other projects but Oli’s exciting work relationships with Momrelle and studio don Toni Economides meant that new creative platforms were there to further develop Reel People’s sound.
Lazarus and Momrelle launched label Reel People Music in December 2009.

Most recent work is 2011 album Reel People Present Golden Lady.
The album confirms Reel People’s long-standing position at the soulful underground’s top table. And there’s no desire to step down. Reel People Music is now up to 25 releases and its careful, long-term nurturing of stylish acts. As for the band itself, a new live show premiered in April 2012 at prestigious London jazz joint Ronnie Scott’s, officially kick-starting their next set of plans. Fans can expect more appearances –building on the band’s excellent 2011 South African tour– in the months ahead, a hot new single Startin’ Over (featuring Darien) and ‘Best Of’ album; all of it celebrating Reel People’s landmark 10th anniversary.
The amazing story continues...
