Nominated as 'UK soul artist of the year' by readers of Soul Survivors magazine, Personal Life is a London based Jazzy Soul collective formed by Robert Strauss, featuring the classic sounding voice of Stuart Lisbie plus core members of Amy Winehouse’s touring band.

The vision for this project is to bring back into popular consciousness the sound, production, songwriting & musicality dating back to the glory days of the music industry, when commercial pop also meant culturally significant, sophisticated and catchy music made with integrity for people of all ages to enjoy.

To quote the band "We believe in a movement of real music, hand made to last the test of time. Reflecting the sounds and values of people during an incredibly inspiring, honest and spiritually elevated period in popular music history”

'Likely to be jazz funk record of the year, if not simply record of the year'
