Iconic singer for The Babys and Bad English, Waite’s unmistakable voice places him in the top echelon of lead vocalists with hits like "Missing You," "Isn't It Time," and "When I See You Smile.” Waite notes that his new album, Rough & Tumble, is “…a step to the left. There’s a rock imprint on the music and a melodic presence, but it’s just shifted gears. It’s an extreme record…with an identity and a philosophy of its own.”
